Favorite quotes from things I've read or seen this week:
William Gibson on Second Life: "I think it only works if you're hooked up socially. Otherwise it's like walking around outside a shopping mall in Edmonton, Alberta, at 4 in the morning in December." (from Salon, interviewed by Dennis Lim)
And, in one of the most meta things I've seen recently, here's a live-action rendition/parody of Second Life, from Youtube.
