If this doesn’t screw my schedule…

Reuter’s is going to be doing a series of interviews at the World Economic Forum in the next few days that will be broadcast as video/audio into SL and supposedly the guest speakers will be answering them back via SL. If there is video, I bet they will just have a representation of their avatar there and have the actual person comment back on screen. Since the forum is being held in Switzerland it is on a EU schedule…and, well early our time this coming morning. about 4AM EST, Peter Gabriel will be speaking. God, if it means a long nap when I get home I have to be up for that. Wish my crumbling sleeping patterns luck on this one.

Here is hoping I can friend Peter Gabriel and somehow connect enough to get to do something regarding him…One can dream.

… it’s a mad, mad world,
