CNN island is closing in SL soon, there will be a final party tonight at 2pm(slt), so we’ll go along and say our farewells to producers Nicole and Henry’s avatars, as they won’t be coming into the virtual world officially as reps of CNN any more. A decision I think, which may have been made some time ago and finally it’s come about. It doesn’t really make a lot of difference to me, as I will go on uploading stories and still have contact via the website if there is a problem, so it’s really only the meetings that have stopped, the articles will still be vetted by CNN who will still have SL Assignments on the site. It’s been a lovely time for both me and friend and writer Hibiscus Hastings, we met at CNN and formed a great friendship; we were both there from the very beginning when ireport started out in its Beta form back in 2007. We have contributed our own little bit of virtual history to the internet with our stories of what a real community SL is, complete with all its wonderful population of designers, artists, theatre people and creators of what ever you can imagine in the real world being brought into the virtual one. It’s been an honour for me to meet so many clever and interesting people and I’ve enjoyed every step of the way writing about them! So I will carry on and want to thank Nicole, Henry, and all the CNN peoples I met who came in world to chat to us mere mortals! lol! Looking forward to the party tonight, so just type CNN island on your map in-world and pop along tonight and have some fun!
