I hope everyone is celebrating Earth Day in their own special way today. There are a bunch of cool activities going on in Second Life that you can find here.

My Virtual Ubuntu T-Shirt

At today's Nonprofit Commons meeting, someone gave me an ubuntu t-shirt. I couldn't resist adding to my t-shirt collection.

Parcels of Land

Tonight Frank gave a group of us a turorial on how to manage the land in our little community. Having never thought about what goes into managing a sim before, I was impressed by how well thought out the system actually is. I'll probably start out by using WESTAF as a guinea pig to reset the name and so forth, but once I've got it under my belt let me know if you, a tenant, needs help. I'm happy to see what I can do for you.

How do I find non-profits in SL?

I often get asked "How do you find out what non-profits are active in Second Life?"

Here are some suggestions of where to start though:

More on Uptime and Nonprofits

Greg left a note mentioning the free monitoring service, Monastic. It doesn't have as much functionality as SiteUpTime.com, but you can monitor 100 sites. If all you are doing is trying to track when your site(s) are down then it seems like this might be a better solution than SiteUpTime. So, as an experiment I have both monitoring systems monitoring the Tech Soup in Second Life site. If I have any revelations, I'll share.
