Wikipedia and Digital Maoism

The SLLA entry in Wikipedia has been deleted by the small band of activists that self-police wikipedia in a superb example of Digital Maoism.

We will keep the link up on the side-bar in case a volunteer wishes to re-start the process within wikipedia. As far as the SLLA can tell the effort to delete our entry was driven by no more than two people. The explanation of and description of our movement can still be found in the New York Times, Financial Times, USA Today, and in-world media such as the Second Life Herald. Details also remain available at our webpage.

In order to expand our online presence we are now starting other profiles in other information sharing environments starting with MySpace and also including Orkut.

Freedom for Second Life!

Philip Rosedale

Volunteers from the SLLA attended Mr.Rosedale's lecture at the Long Now Foundation this week. While Rosedale's lecture was erudite and wide-ranging in its scope it failed to address the subject of how far avatars in Second Life will be able to control their own destiny. While Mr. Rosedale saw an increasingly vibrant future for Second Life no mention was made of granting or even experimenting with political rights for avatars. We believe this to be a dangerous way to proceed as Second Life demands and requires the participation of its residents - if this participation is cut-off at the political level residents will begin to disengage.
