Tom, or LastDitch as he is known in SL, invited us all to come to an awards ceremony on his SL airship.
Now how can people in different parts of the world be together in the same room at the same time other than in the virtual world?
It was great fun to meet and "speak" with these people in real time, even share a dance, but when we left SL that day, for most, it was never to return.
But something intrigued me enough to come back. LD found me a mentor, loaned me a grace and favour apartment, along with a cash infusion to get me started and I’ve been there ever since.
Tom's a lawyer in RL and came to Vancouver for the International Bar Association meeting but he was gracious enough to take time out of his busy schedule for lunch with his SL/blogging friend.
Funnily enough we hardly spoke of blogging or SL, but while we enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Fish House in Stanley Park the conversation never seemed to falter as we talked about this and that.
Enjoy your visit to our beautiful city Tom/Last and thank you for your company today.
Sigh, excuse the different sized fonts. I've tried to fix them several times, just not my day technically speaking!
