Geek Entertainment TV

Geek Entertainment TV is an emerging global media empire, reporting from deep inside the bubble as it re-inflates. GETV covers buzzword compliant topics such as web 2.0, tagging, AJAX, social software and the bubble juice known as VCs. We like robots, so you'll hear about that too.

Second Life is a vibrant exploding universe onto itself. It has a thriving economy, a creative workforce, islands of virtual terrain to explore, build upon and events at all times of the day. It takes an embedded journalist to bring these virtual realities to the lowly first world. GETV’s Irina Slutsky gets a first life interview with former Linden Lab’er Wagner James Au, currently an embedded journalist in Second Life who writes New World Notes. Find out how in-game citizens get fancy threads and make phat Lindens, also discover the secret double lives some gamers lead.

We caught up with Philip Rosedale aka Philip Linden, the man that birthed the massively multi-player experience known as Second Life, at the second annual Second Life Community Convention in San Francisco. GETV’s Irina Slutsky gets some insight from Philip on what makes Second Life so compelling that people will give up their first life to join in. Few people live Second Life like Eric RIce aka Spin Martin, who gives Irina a peak into his world. Also, Varna McLean shows us around her pocket park.
