PRAYERS FOR OUR FRIEND VEOVIS
Veovis Nightfire

I spoke with Veovis today in chat and he indicates his wife is going for chemotherapy now. She said she got to talk to someone who’s been fighting the same cancer as she has for the last 5 years, and was in there for her thrid go-around, but apparently she was still hanging tough. Veovis says it was good for her to see someone like that. Let us continue to give them our support and love.

THE D’NI DEAL

Riana has started The D’ni Deal for those who love shopping, freebies, hunts etc. The newsletter will be posted on Wednesdays. You can get the newsletter via The D’ni Refugee or Uru Cavern Skydivers groups or IM Riana to get put into the subscribo if you are not a member of those groups (she does not have a location in-world to put a subscribo). Riana has included a survey in her first issue so you can give her feedback.

BURNIVERSITY PRESENTATION BY THE US DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY (DOE)

From the notecard:

I am very excited to invite you to a very special Burniversity class! 

As you may have heard the suggested theme for the next Burning Life Festival will be urbanistic (after Metropolis theme for Burning Man 2010).  The exact theme name will be announced during Burning Life presentation at SL7B, so stay tuned!

To prepare our artists and builders for exploring the future of cities, I decided to invite people who actually work on creating that future in real life. 

Scott Minos (this is his real name)  – The Senior Policy and Communications Specialist at the U.S. Department of Energy will explain how near and far away buildings will look, what energy source we might use and most interestingly for us – he will bring some pictures and models to illustrate those technology ideas. 

In a way, Scott Minos and his team are doing in Real Life what we will be doing in Second Life – trying to imagine the future of the cities and how things might look.  I believe it will be extremely interesting for us to hear what he might say!

Please, come to meet Scott Minos this Monday at 2PM EST (11 AM SLT) and bring your questions!

********************************************
This session is going to be the last Burniversity class I am organizing.  I am very proud of this project!  Since I created it in August, we had wonderful informative lectures presented by some of the best artists in SL.  The Burniversity grew to be big enough to deserve its own dedicated Dean –  Nyx Breen, a well known talented artist/builder, the winner of numerous prestigious SL competitions and my very good friend.  He has a lot of time, energy and ideas and plans to develop the Burniversity much further!  If you haven’t met him yet, you will have a chance to do it soon!  I will be helping him at least at the beginning, but my main forcus at BL will be curating art projects.  Go Nyx!
