Welcoming Get Together for the City's Newest Residents

Welcome Party for New Residents at Zo

Tonight we had a little impromptu welcoming party for the City's newest residents Tori Carlucci and Ashia Tokyoska.  The amazing Roxanne Ysabel DeVinna sang for us. If you haven't heard Rox perform yet, one word: gorgeous!  You really need to check her out when she performs next at Zo Restaurant in the city.  

We welcome our newest residents and thank all of our residents for being part of our Virtual Asia family!  We would not have the strong community that we do if not for you all.

What's going on?

Virtual Asia Picture by Leoo Burnstein

We continue to be surprised by the creative guests coming to the City. Tonight we were honored to be visited by Leoo Burnstein, Creator and Co-Owner of MultiScene Skybox Rentals. Mr. Burnstein was kind enough to make this artistic photograph for us. We truly enjoy this great rendition of one of the streets in the City. We have given it a special place in the City and also wish to honor it here in our blog.

Thanks to Mr. Leoo Burnstein for your time, efforts and visiting us here in Virtual Asia!

Bank Robbery Attempt Foiled in Downtown Virtual Asia

Foiled Bank Robbery

Breaking news!
We interrupt this programming for breaking news! A bank heist attempt on the ABN AMRO branch in downtown Virtual Asia was foiled earlier this afternoon. The City's own courageous man in uniform, Manny Vitali, won the fight against local terrorism on the streets. Our City reporter Stormy was able to get a word with our local hero. Manny stated, "He was not a hard target. Once I got my chance for a shot and Command gave me the go I knew that the terrorist would not live to see another day."

We have won the current battle against local terrorism. A forensic autopsy is currently being performed on the bloodied body of the hopeful bank robber, Maanaf. Once the autopsy has been completed, we plan on displaying Maanaf's mounted remains in our City Hall to remind any would be terrorists that the Marines are in town now.  Citizens, you can rest easy again tonight. We take you back now to your regularly scheduled programming. "Homer: Oh, so they have Internet on computers now!"


Open Mic Night at the Margarita Lounge!


A few singers were hanging out at the Virtual Asia Margarita Lounge and decided to have a go at the open mic.  Our man on the street Collin Fearne pulled out his roving camera and got it down on film.  Check out the footage and hear the smooth sounds of Curtain246 Resident, Long Pausch and Roxanne Ysabel!  Unfortunately, Collin’s own rendition of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star seems to have been left on the cutting room floor!  I can’t imagine why!

Enjoy!

OI Magazine Interview with Javabox Kawanishi

Asia, Isn't It Wonderful?A Review of Second Life® 's Virtual Asia
Source:  OI Magazine

Built in less than two weeks, Virtual Asia® had just kicked off officially earlier today, August 25th with a huge Tokyo fashion show produced by ProFashion Productions though it has been open to the public for quite a while now.

Virtual Asia,Owned by Javabox Kawanishi, is a commercial sim with a Tokyo-styled theme. The streets are lined with popular SL® stores handpicked by the Virtual Asia staff. Java says, "We are very selective with the designers that we bring to the city. One of the conditions of being a designer in the city is to be part of our monthly meetings where we discuss business trends, sales and marketing. There are wonderful great designers here. The reason they are here is because our designers strive to collaborate."

Mr Kawanishi remarked that when he had been searching for new ideas and opportunities for his real life company, Virtual Adventures, he came across Second Life as he was conducting research for a client in RL regarding a 3D shopping center. He remarked that although it wasn't the first time he had heard about the game, having seen it before on a Dutch television, he got a little more than curious especially when he saw that he can fly and build in-world. Deciding to try it out was only the first step in the launching and organizing of Virtual Asia.

When asked how do they attract customers and traffic to the sim, Mr Kawanishi had this for an answer, "Our focus is not to attract customers, but rather is to interact with the community by offering something of value. Value is given by things like free apartments, a movie cinema, several cafes/lounges, a nightclub and some great photo opportunities that we offer. We also have many creative events that keep the community active. By serving the community well, our residents will bring others to the city. "

They normally don't get troublemakers at the sim as the residents there are generally peaceful, but the biggest setback they have encountered at the moment is the prim count limit and the limit on the number of avatars they can have on the sim. Though handling any businesses is hard, he says that, "Such as in real life, you have to have a business plan and a clear focus on a vision. If you do not have that, then everything you set up is doomed to fail. It is also critical to never give up". He also stresses out the fact that as an entrepreneur, you have to be always open to new ideas and knowledge. You should always maintain open channels to fellow entrepreneurs so that there's exchange of information you can use later on for your business. Listening to the community and customers is always a must too. Figure out what they want and what's the current trend.

Handling a business can often be tiring and disheartening, but according to Mr Kawanishi, "I strongly believe in the vision that I have in my mind. I accept that failing comes with building a successful company. I have made several attempts previously. I will continue trying until I succeed with the vision behind Virtual Asia."

Visit Virtual Asia now or you can check out their site for more information about the sim and it's projects. Currently, they have ongoing events such as The Face of Virtual Asia contest, music events in Club Chica Boom, jazz events in Zo Restaurant, and street parties. A lot more are in the works as they are always looking for new ways to set up creative events.

Interviews with Javabox Kawanishi and Crazy Ibor by ProFashion Productions


Javabox Kawanishi and Crazy Ibor in Virtual Asia

With all the exciting things going on in Virtual Asia people are starting to take notice. Recently Javabox Kawanishi of Vidal Fashion and Crazy Ibor of Chica Boom sat down with ProFashion Productions about their fashion lines as well as Virtual Asia.

* * * * * * * * * *
Virtual Asia where virtual reality meets real world reality...
Source:  ProFashion Productions

ProFashion Productions presents to you Virtual Asia. The developers of Virtual Asia have as their mission to both expose the SL community to the Asian culture/environment as well as to study to see how a virtual society might provide opportunities for economic growth for Asians in real life.

Javabox Kawanishi has been joined by Crazy Ibor and Mariadelcarmen Bekkers to make this vision a reality. According to the development team, the shared vision of SL being a force of effective change in real world environments is both exciting and challenging. An existing RL foundation committed to aid those less fortunate in the world economy will be procuring computers and space for people in these lands to work in a virtual world. (In some countries daily wages for 13 hours of hard labor is the equivalent of 250 Lindens). Giving people the opportunity work in SL as greeters, hosts etc. would be a welcome break from current employment. The exciting part is, the sky is the limit in this scenario. Learning photoshop skills, blender skills, scripting skills etc. will not only allow for great income in a virtual world but can translate into needed and marketable skills in real world applications. Some have asked why not give all the money you make on clothes and tiers to a charity helping the same people? A valid question with a powerful answer. If we can show that a concept is self-sustaining through tiers and vendor sales then we create opportunities for replication and sustainability. We know too well people change charities every so often, move on from different projects when they have to be maintained by altruistic means. However, when something pays for itself and becomes bigger than just one person or foundation and can be replicated over and over then it will endure.

Currently the City offers 40 free apartments, hotel rooms, many community events and a number of fun attractions and great photo opportunities. Voice chat is encouraged to establish a more personal feeling amongst visitors and residents. You can visit attractions like Club Chica Boom for partying to great music, the Margarita Lounge to unwind and join in on a karaoke contest, Zo Restaurant to enjoy a night of dinner and jazz, the Orange Cafe for a cup of coffee and a chat with friends, Ralph’s Diner for a burger and milkshake and the City Cinema to catch a movie or show. You can also enjoy concerts, fashion shows, the Face of Virtual Asia contest, City wide hunts, special designer offers, Mandarin Chinese language classes and even scooter races.

At the ProFashion Tokyo fashion show, the designs of Chica Boom, Vidal and one or two others will be presented.

I caught up with Javabox Kawanishi who not only built this amazing destination but who is also the owner/designer of Vidal Designs.

Javabox please tell our readers what brought you to Second Life?
I was searching for new opportunities for my real life company, Virtual Adventures, for a way to present products and services. I was conducting research for a real life client to build a 3D shopping center. I did an Internet search and stumbled upon Second Life. That was actually my second time hearing about Second Life. I had also seen it on Dutch television once. I thought to myself, “Wow, I can fly and build in 3D so I wanted to try it out.”

And how have you kept yourself busy in your time in SL?
Community building, designing clothes, and building cities.

When it comes to clothes design, what would you say are your influences?
Easy to wear, casual and affordable fashion. Also, fun fashion like uniforms, sporty/athletic clothing, and retro dresses.

What can we expect from Vidal at the show?
As Vidal we tried to bring a collection that has something for everyone! The current collection is influenced by vivid colors.

What are your plans for your design brand?
Vidal has been an accessible brand with simple high quality designs. Every quarter, a new collection will be released.


Next under the Microscope is Chica Boom Designs by Crazy Ibor.

Crazy what brought you to Second Life?
I broke my foot while running on the beach one day and was sitting at home. I was driving the girls who work for me in RL crazy by calling them all day for updates and trying to feel like I was still running things. So they got fed up with me and made me this character named Crazy, since I was driving them crazy.

I have been on and off sporadically and used to hang out and listen to music. I trade currencies in RL so I would find places and listen to music and work.


What are your design influences?
CHICA BOOM got started by me making clothes for my avatar. I had a lot of trouble finding men’s clothes I would like to wear, so I started creating my own and realized I had a knack for this. My female friends saw this and started putting in custom orders and then gave me the idea of opening a woman’s fashion store and thus CHICA BOOM was born. I am trying to create a style that is sensual rather than in your face sex, one that exudes class over pretense and gives dignity to the lady wearing it. My inspiration comes from my hometown of Miami Beach Florida where I am trying to infuse the energy, passion and fun vibrancy I see in the boutiques and quite frankly on the women I see on the street each day. I truly enjoy making clothes and strive to hand make everything whenever feasible so when you buy an item from my store you won’t “see yourself coming and going” when you are out and about on the grid.

Please describe what you are presenting for the show?
I am trying to show several different looks. I want to show my street look of jeans and sneakers, artsy corsets and some fashion forward looks.

What are your plans for your design brand?
I will let the brand develop itself. The response has been wonderful so far and we will continue developing one of a kind cuts and textures but look for a fresh bright look for summer, a crisp look for fall, and heavy jeweled color look for winter.

We look forward to seeing you all on the 25th August as ProFashion Productions present the Virtual Asia Tokyo show in collaboration with the owners of Virtual Asia.

You may enjoy your time so much in Virtual Asia, shopping and having fun, that you may just decide to become a resident of the City, to become part of the family, and to help the team achieve their vision and make a difference in the lives of others.

See you all there on Saturday.

Second Life is Expanding to Steam

Second Life is Expanding to Steam
by Linden Lab 08-16-2012 01:50 PM - edited 08-16-2012 01:50 PM
As some sharp-eyed developers have speculated, we’re going to make Second Life available on Steam in the next month or so.

Many of us have friends who are avid Steam gamers, but if you’re not familiar, Steam is a very popular online game platform that offers a wide range of titles (and will soon also offer other software as well).

What does this news mean for Second Life? You’ll still be able to access Second Life just as you can today; there won’t be any change to that. But, the more than 40 million people who use Steam will also be able to get Second Life as easily as they can get games like Portal.

We’ll make an announcement on the blog when Second Life is actually available on Steam, but in the meantime, if you have friends who are Steam gamers, let ‘em know it’s coming!

Comment by Herry Maltz Founder of www.socialvr.com
As much as I would like to say this is a positive happening, I'll have to jump on the fence and say this is going to be a really bad idea in many areas and coming from going on ten years of experience, here's my take on the situation.

We all saw what happened when LindenLab removed the credit card verification back in 2006, well those that were here of course. Not only did we see a major spike in griefing, we also noticed a massive spike in people that did not spend money but were still using the service.

Consider this: All these new people connected to the grid will mean more lag for everybody else and probably about the same amount of premium memberships which is little to none due to the lack of worthwhile incentives that program offers. Not only that fact, but look at the age of users? I've been a user of steam services for many years now and get involved in several games on that service... People are down right nasty on a lot of them. Especially the first person shooters with the racist comments and just absolute nasty behavior.

As of lately we've (as residents) had enough of a problem with both problematic people and lag issues throughout various places within Second Life. Many long time members such as myself have enough of a waiting time when it comes to contacting LindenLab on things that we need and with all these new troublemakers? I'm not implying all Steam users are trouble but the majority are. Just watch some youtube videos about some of the FPS and you'll get an idea of what type of racism and behavior we're going to potentially have to deal with in addition to what we already deal with in the game without this added promotion of this platform.

Opinions?
