Thank you dear Bryn for your nice words on your blog about your dear sister.
The first space I was ever given in SL was by Georg Jannick, the founder of Caerleon island artist collective and Professor at The University of Massachusetts. There were only six of us to start and I think they were Georg, myself, four Yip, feathers boa, Sunseeker Miklos, Kueperpunk and Nonnatus Korhonnen. Four Yip was always one of my favorite artists in SL and Nonnatus created some really brilliant AI work too. Those founding members might be wrong but it was something like that. Pixels Sideways, Glyph Graves, Misprint Thursday, Sowa Mai, Luce Laval, Lollito Larkham, Artistide Despres, Sabrinaa Nightfire and Adam Ramona came soon after. Gah my memory is terrible I probably got that all wrong. Even Saveme Oh was a member early on… her arrival was like the Trojan Horse, but with a big grumpy Troll inside rather than soldiers. Anyway, it is a bit sad to read because Caerleon has died a slow death since education discounts were discontinued by LL. It had grown from a single sim with six artists to four regions and thirty artists. It was thriving yet today has one region left and it is slated to close unless Georg changes his mind.
Ty dear Bryn, really kind.
