Torley Linden to Be Celebrated on His “Saint Day” in Second Life
Second Life Church Reprises Its Event Honoring Linden Lab’s “Resident Enlightenment Manager”

RHIANNA, Second Life, Sept. 13 — Torley Linden, Second Life’s “Resident Enlightenment Manager,” has long been recognized and celebrated as a living saint. The First Church of Rosedale announced today that “St. Torley’s Day” will take place on Sunday, September 18, with a party at noon, followed by a special service at 2 PM. The party, hosted in Penning by Four Kittens of the Apocalypse, will feature live music by popular Second Life artist Kaklick Martin.

Torley Linden has written innumerable posts on the company’s official blog and created hundreds of video tutorials. He listens and responds to residents, holding weekly office hours and keeping tabs on Second Life content all over the Web, including blogs, Flickr, Twitter, Vimeo, and YouTube. His Saint Day is the Sunday closest to his “rezday” (the day he first entered Second Life), September 15; 2011 will mark the end of his seventh year “in-world.”

Copyrights and other intellectual property rights. Seems like you can’t go a day without something in the news about these, yet from my own experience, it seems that very few people have any real grasp on even rudimentary intellectual property rights, what they are and why they are important. Even some of the most well-educated people can’t even name the basic ‘rights’ of copyright. Last I saw any statistics on the topic (just a couple of years ago), 70% of respondents were unable to demonstrate any accurate knowledge of intellectual property rights at all.

So, while I don’t know Zinnia Zauber at all, I think there should be more events like the one she is holding tomorrow. In an age where our creative works are less and less commonly embodied in physical substances, it is incumbent on us to understand both our rights and that of others.
