Saying Goodbye


I’m not sure how many people will see this post, but I thought I’d jump in to state the somewhat obvious – that The Metaverse Journal is pretty much no more. It hasn’t been regularly updated in well over a year – not because my interest has flagged but because I plain don’t have enough time to devote to this site AND work on my further studies that involve virtual worlds. I still have 3-4 years of that study to go, so I’d rather draw a line in the sand rather than leave things hanging.

This site has been live since 2006 and was initially launched as Sloz.info (Second Life Oz) and SL was our sole focus. We then widened coverage to virtual worlds more broadly. It’s been a hell of a fun ride and I wanted to thank a bunch of people:

1. I have to thank Tateru Nino first and foremost – her encouragement over the years made all the difference.

2. Everyone else that contributed posts: Feldspar Epstein, Graham Sabre and Wolfie Rankin to name three in particular.

3. All the great people I’ve met in-world and the great times in places like ABC Island (pictured).

The site will remain live, and there may be the odd update but it’s unlikely. If you’re into the use of virtual worlds in health, my study-related blog Metaverse Health will be updated here and there.

Again – thanks for your patience and readership :)

    Thanks Juko and you were very much one of the SL people it was an honour to hang out with :)

    I still don’t know how you manage to do it all mate, sad to see the Journal go but I know you’ll have something bigger in the wings for future unveiling.

  • Lowell Cremorne

    Why thank you sir and I do need to acknowledge your writing contributions too :)

    Thanks for the good-bye, Lowell — instead of just fading into the distance. Sorry to see you go but understand well the trade-off between time and workload.

    Best wishes in your study; bring home good (interesting) news.
