[…] an email once you’ve published the post, that way they can include it in their overview list (Vint’s overview list will be here.) It would be the nice thing to do to notify your ‘writer’ […]
Oooh, yay! I know about religion in SL, as I’ve been church exploring and stuff in the past :D Should be an interesting post to write (though I don’t really do funny).
I got my first topic (community in SL) covered ok but my second (What will the impact of OpenSim 1.0 be to the SL land economy?) - eek! Not a subject I’ve paid much attention to. Time to start doing some homework I guess!
Dani, funny is not obliged, just a suggestion! ;)
@Maera, that’s indeed a though one, but an excellent occasion to broaden your knowledge? I believe Miss Gwyneth added tips: (Hint for your text: don’t assume that OpenSim-based grid will be as reliable or as fast as LL’s own; explore the business opportunity of getting cheap, low-cost sims running on low-end, unreliable servers). And lots of the ‘openspaces’ blogposts now are covering this too. And overview of the grids that are running ‘opensim’ at the moment. I believe there is only one that has a virtual currency, don’t ask me which one. Over on the npirl blogposts there are a few writeups on different opensims. As for the SL landeconomy we all know what’s happening to that at the moment, you can create endless amounts of land, so it’s not worth more (or often less, now) than what you pay lindens for it (which is way more than the actual server cost) + what you’ve added to it/traffic it has/…. But all just suggestions! ;)
“Link to the person who will blog the subject you suggested. (optional)”
I am assuming you mean the blog their article will be published on, not their own individual blog, right? For example, Torley Linden got my suggested topic. I would not link on my own blog post to Torley’s site; I would link to the site that will be publishing his writing (http://firstname.lastname@example.org), so that others may read it too. Have I got that right?
(who is finding this a little harder to format than she thought. I am setting it up now with as much info as I can, and saving as draft to publish on 11/12/08. That way once I get the article there won’t be much to do, especially since I will be finishing my own article at the same time. I’ve filled the body of my blog post with 1000 Latin words, set to deploy at 12am on the 12th, so if you don’t deliver, Vint, everyone will just think that you are very erudite!
Wow, lots of fun! I need to get a child avatar then write about it, and then I get to host a Kat Linden post too!
How do we know the person who suggested the subject, so that we can link to his/her blog? That’s not in the PDF. Is there a master list, or do we just scroll through the comments on yours and ArminasX’s blogs?
My first reaction to my topic: “But I’m not male!!!”
But never fear! I have plans… muahahahahah
Quaintly, the only way I could see to do it was to scroll through the suggestions made on both blog posts:
It was kind of fun to read through them all, actually.
Damn.. missed this.. and I *LOVE* key parties!
If anyone drops out I’ll be over standing by the punch bowl..
Quaintly, the Princess is right. I’m sorry we forgot to include that in the spreadsheet, but it’s our first, you know… . :)
Miss Princess, I am assuming you mean the blog their article will be published on, not their own individual blog, right? Good question. You can do both? (or decide yourself ;))
As for Jordyn, count yourself in. Yours, Shockwave’s and Nadine’s subject added to a second sheet, will mix soon! (as ArminasX is awake). Again, my apologies to Miss Nadine for not including her!
Here is how I chose to interpret the publication format (I have listed the posted format first). Tell me if I’m off base:
1. Introduction by ‘blog host’. (optional)
2. Blogpost & pictures. Style at will.
3. Author name. (+ link to his/her blog)
4. Person who suggested the subject. (+ link to his/her blog)
5. Link to the blog where your blogpost will appear. (optional)
6. Link to the person who will blog the subject you suggested. (optional)
Ok, here goes:
1. I would write something on MY blog introducing the person whose essay would be published on my blog.
2. I would publish that person’s essay and photographs (at least one photo) that they submit to me. I can format this however I wish on my blog.
3. I would state the name of the person who wrote the essay I published on my blog, and include a link to that person’s blog.
4. I would state the name of the person who suggested the topic (you have to read through the posts on the website to find this - it is not on the master list) and include a link to that person’s blog.
5. Include a link to the blog that will publish the essay I wrote.
6. Check the list to see who got assigned to write about the subject I suggested, and include a link to that person’s blog.
It’s a little complicated, and somewhat time consuming to figure this all out, but it is possible, once you get started. I don’t know about other blogs, but on Blogger I can create a draft entry now, and have it set to publish automatically on a certain date and time. So I am filling in as many of these 6 items as I can now, so that I will only be left waiting for the actual essay and pictures from the author, to add to the post and then it will be all set to publish. (Does this make sense? I’m kind of wandering today with my writing).
Entirely correct, Your Royal Highness. Yes, draft & publish automatically at a certain time is possible on both WP & blogger. I don’t know about Joomla and it’s possible in Drupal with the necessary modules. (But I don’t think many are using the latter.)
And makes perfect sense, YRH! Thank you for explaining this so well to others, and sorry we forgot to include that info in the graph, as said before, it is our first. (But ctrl+f does wonders for searching! ;))
Wow, Vint is writing on my topic, I’m writing on secondeffects, and There is a great topic appearing on IDG, I’m thrilled.
I thought this was fun. I sent mine to Gwyneth Llewelyn a couple minutes ago… woohoo!

This blog post was made by Merrick Thor for The Click Heard Round The World, as a part of: The 1st Second Life Bloggers Mix’n Match event Organised by Vint Falken and ArminasX Saiman (Topic suggested by Dusan Writer). ATTENTION!…
I have published Vint Falken’s essay, “Creator versus Consumer,” on my blog Her Royal Highness, Princess Ivory. It’s very well written, and I love the graphic images she located to use to illustrate it!

I have yet to see the story I sent to be posted on http://www.avatrian.com, as was assigned to me, appear on their website.
The last time the site was updated was nearly a week ago, and overall the site seems to be mainly an advert for their online “thinktank”. I doubt it will ever go up there.
At this point I will give it until tomorrow, then post it on my own site along with the piece I posted by Eliza Wrigglesworth.
Yes, Zealot, or if you wish to be featured here or on ArminasX blog, mail it to us then (pick one of the two), I’m sure we would host it in stead (your choice). If you put it up on your blog, make sure to drop us an email, so we update our list to include your article!
Send a final email to the avatrian participant also?
