"Don't do it, Bruce!"
Too late; it's already been advertised.
Nice interview Bruce. Also your avatar looks like a younger version of yourself. Somewhat surprised you didn't include this site on the web tab, but then again, most people who see you at Virtually Speaking already know of you and your web site.
For those among us too busy without first lives to add a second one, is there a transcript?
Unfortunately, I doubt it. The Second Life aspect was pretty meaningless. The actual interview happened over blog radio. That could have been advertised and you would have missed almost nothing.

That's not true, John. You can't yet be attacked by flying penises on blog radio. I'm pretty sure that's unique to Second Life (or at least, I hope it is).
For those who never saw it:
"@Zod I will have to crush your hope there:"
Hmm, based on Zod's confessed worry and attendant hope, I definately think I will not follow your lead as it where...
As today is 27th your interview must has been finished. So how was it?? How was the experience?? And you have cool avatar looks like a kid. I liked the curly hair of it.
You might be right. The video is entitle "Gary Kasparov and the Flying Penis" and it appears that 2nd Lifers have somehow managed to make penis-copters, one of which attacked Gary Kasparov. This happened IRL, meaning that none of us are safe any longer.
Even if you don't understand a word they're saying, it's not hard to understand how they feel about a flying penis invading their meeting.
The value of the second life environment as a studio audience for this program (which I've been hosting for three years) is that it creates an interactive opportunity for the inworld audience that is very difficult to replicate IRL.
At the most recent US Personal Democracy Forum, one could see some of that, as the main sessions featured a feed of the twitter streams referring to the sessions. So live tweets were available to the audience, commenting
on the content.
In SL, this kind of communication is routine.
But, yes, the audience for the podcasts is greater than the live audience. And I would urge you to listen.
Actually, if you are reading this blog, most of what we said will be old news. But there was a complementary point of view between Bruce and Jim that you might find enlightening.
And I thought the illusion of control over your fate governing your risk assessment was discussed in an interesting way.
