In Photos: The Most Ridiculous Laws in America | Raw File | WIRED | Machinimania | Scoop.it
We trust our lawmakers to pass legislation that will keep us safe and serve the greater public good. In every state's books, though, there are laws outlandish and weird enough to make you question those lawmakers' sanity. Try as you might, it's hard to imagine why anyone would take the time to make it illegal to have an ice cream cone in your pocket.

Picture Book

Picture Book | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Picture Book is a fantastical world that expands like the universe everyday. There are obstacles, good folks and not so nice shadow players to meet along the path. Any story Ruby cares about includes conflict. Picture Book is a hero journey and explorers are given the opportunity to write their own journey stories while they visit.

 

Ann Dickerson is the builder of Picture Book in Kitely Grid which is a story telling world. Ann's avatar (typist) is called Ruby O'Degree which she describes as a fictive author and storybuilder in the tradition of characters developed for telling stories such as Sherlock Holmes, Marco Polo, and Cynthia Rawlings.

I visited Picture Book and I must say I loved it but it is still a work in progress. Well worth seeing though and another example of the way in which authors, story tellers and adventure creators are turning to the low cost Opensim worlds to express their undoubted talents in the arts.
