Second Front at The GateOctober 5, 2007
Yesterday I went to see Second Front at The Gate, which was a performance group being streamed from SL to Brussels through the 2-way streaming portal called The Gate.
It drew a crowd, but the performance was the standard boring stuff we see in SL every day, i.e. fires, oddly-made avs, etc. The same attention-craving people but in a different societal subset from our common-or-garden griefers were displaying what I’m sure they thought was edgy and fascinating behavior. Alas, it’s what we see every day in SL and it’s boring. I didn’t stay for the entire SF event as it was hours long. Maybe they had a big finish.
It was funnish seeing the Brussels crowd. The Gate is an interesting idea and I really wanted to see at least a still photo of what they were seeing. I think the quality of SL things being streamed will improve if The Gate stays up long enough. At that time yesterday the performance was lame, though.
