Acclaimed SL Artist Bryn Oh Quits Linden Endowment for the Arts in Protest Over Company's Draconian Terms of Service

Acclaimed SL Artist Bryn Oh Quits Linden Endowment for the Arts in Protest Over Company's Draconian Terms of Service | Zee's SL News and Things | Scoop.it

Bryn Oh, one of Second Life's most acclaimed artists, has resigned from the Linden Lab-supported Linden Endowment for the Arts in protest over the company's contentious new Terms of Service, which claims rights over "all or any portion of your User Content (and derivative works thereof), for any purpose whatsoever in all formats". For understandable reasons, this didn't sit well with Ms. Oh, who in real life is an artist from Canada whose SL work has even received a grant from her government.

Dio: The Creators Of Second Life Lauch A Platform For Storytelling

Dio: The Creators Of Second Life Lauch A Platform For Storytelling | Zee's SL News and Things | Scoop.it

It’s easy to share photos (Flickr, Instagram, Facebook). It’s easy to visit places (Google Street View). It’s easy to tell stories (every blogging platform on earth). So what if you want to give someone a tour of your home town? How do you do that?

 

Dio is a new site by Linden Lab, who you know best for Second Life. It’s essentially a photo-sharing site with a twist: Rather than simply navigating by thumbnails or next buttons, Dio allows you to link images through a larger, branching narrative. The result? You don’t just have a set of photos; you have an interactive place or story.
