I’m not a big fan of a long draggy meetings myself. Look at how technology can solve that problem. Interesting article to show the difference in mentality between the 20-somethings CEO and the 50-somethings CEO.

Something freaky is happening to APLINK…an addiction is slowly creeping up on me… for the social networking platform called Facebook…why is this happening.
I think primarily it is because no one can feel threatened by a facebook profile …its friendly, it’s free, it’s easy, it’s interactive hehe dare i say — itsReal.
The more I get to be in facebook the more i discover things that can be done, I have a linkedin profile and also plaxo, Zing & others but of all these I think facebook allows me to mix my social lifestyle with my business style. In other words you can be yourself in facebook NOT some business drone that you seem to need to be in the others….
When i happened on the link to include this blog into my facebook profile and then seeing how easy it was to do, i think this is the turning point…still when will someone integrate second life into facebook, i would love to have a doorway from my facebook profile to my office in second life…then the addiction would engulf me completely –itsReal

SLOz launches Their first SLOZ Traffic Index (STI) for June. Being their first one it’s a fairly modest list. To be included in the index the SL presence needs to be owned / operated by Australians. Yippee when my SL programs get underway I will be seeking their kind inclusion…. cause as you know I am a Proud Australian cum KIWI…
A few important notes on their methodology as well as a couple of disclaimers:
1. The number linked to each presence is a standard average based on dwell statistics provided to all SL users via the Search Places option.
2. For large presences we’ve chosen the most popular area rather than add up total dwell – this means larger presences may have overall larger numbers but that’s not what we’re measuring (see also point 5).
3. Each presence, unless an addition since the start of the reporting period, has had their traffic stats measured at least ten times with each instance at least 24 hours apart.
4. The individual times and statistics can be found here
5. The STI is indicative only – yes we know there are much more detailed methodologies and that ours is a rough guide only for the SL community – we think of it as a ‘what’s hot’ measure. Discussion / criticism on the STI here.
Onto the STI:
Telstra’s Billabong Bar and the ABC Island Sandbox are no surprises as popular haunts. Armory Island by its very nature has a wide international popularity hence its number one position. The Australia Sim is garnering a lot of traffic for a new build and Lord Coalcliff’s Skyhome Resort is a stayer. Another relatively new presence is Sofia’s furniture and its popularity isn’t to be sneezed at either.

A pro & con conversation of Second Life’s ultimate future… This conversation proves that Second Life has rocked our perception of what IS the Internet and what the Internet IS becoming. I predict that what most see as an adventure into a reality whereby most people can not attain things they desire in the so called “real world” is purely folly, and that the reality of unimaginable commercial applications for virtual worlds is just around the corner – enJoy
Using Second Life for Architectural Collaboration…wishful thinking perhaps.
Aplink has a new blog which is going to focus more on Second Life and Virtual Worlds, please do subscribe to aplink.biz I will be maintaining this current wordpress blog for more varied real & some virtual marketing and public relations topics.
Also within Second Life I have created a Group, surprisingly called APLINK, please do join my group as I will be announcing some initiatives & events in-world that you may be interested to know about before the masses do. – itsReal

To join the group: once in Second Life hit the search button then the Groups button, enter APLINK and then JOIN.
Joining the group is free and I intend to build a community where we can share SL experiences, ideas & opportunities. I have just established some unique relationships with some primary developers and content providers within SL. APLINK will be privy to a vast amount of in-world and real world activities that will continue to drive the growth of Second Life.
For myself I have several projects being launched in Second Life, as these can be made public I will report on the opportunities that these open up to primarily SL residents in Singapore and Asia Pacific in general.
If you would like to know more than the ordinary person about Second Life…Join APLINK in-world.
