Molotov Alva and His Search for the Creator - Premiers on Cinemax

A Second Life machinima video titled, "Molotov Alva and His Search for the Creator: A Second Life Odyssey"premieres Thursday, May 15 at 8pm/7C Check this link at Cinemax Reel Life for viewing information.

What's remarkable is that this is creating a fair amount of buzz on the web and I suspect will draw even more mainstream interest in Second Life and other virtual worlds. I can see college students being interested in this series, many who may not yet know what SL is about. We'll see. But these machinima videos are very good and Cinemax has posted their own copy of part 1 and part 2 on YouTube already.

Here is the version of the first episode posted on YouTube in April 2007

Hey, Robin, check out the new OLPC: http://www.forbes.com/technology/2008/05/20/olpc-laptop-microsoft-tech-personal-cx_ag_0520olpc.html

yes, I have been following the whole OLPC mess and finding it very disturbing. I am saddened by the move away from open source Linux OS to Windows. Walter Bender (President) recently quit over it and has started his own company. If they can really get that thing down to $75. they should do well. Still the whole thing has really upset the open source community that has been so passionately supportive and invaluable to the project. :(

So you commented here on my Molotov post instead of twittering this because? :-)
