Extroversion (18%) low which suggests you are very reclusive, quiet, unassertive, and private.
Accommodation (44%) moderately low which suggests you are, at times, overly selfish, uncooperative, and difficult at the expense of the well being of others.
Orderliness (72%) high which suggests you are overly organized, neat, structured and restrained at the expense too often of flexibility, variety, spontaneity, and fun.
Emotional Stability (24%) low which suggests you are very worrying, insecure, emotional, and anxious.
Inquisitiveness (80%) high which suggests you are very intellectual, curious, imaginative but possibly not very practical.

Status of Remaining Two Grids

activities, artificial boy, child avatars, identity, presence No Comments

I have two posts in my drafts. They have been there since January. They are the OpenLifeGrid and DeepGrid counterparts of my posts, Adz Childs Born On OSGrid, Adz Childs Born On Central Grid, and Adz Local born on Localhost. I will now delete the drafts.

I have been waiting and waiting for experiments with these grids to complete successfully so I can finally release an overall summary. Today I have decided to just give up and release the summary. If some miracle happens and I am able to finally connect to these remaining two alternate grids, I will post and update. But someone would have to talk me into it again — I’ve stopped trying to connect as of today.

I also have some Launcher Icons I created in GIMP, based on the respective grid logos. I will now release those. Read the rest…

D. Writer Comments on Age Verification

Dusan Writer of Dusan Writer’s Metaverse discusses the absurdity of Linden Lab’s age verification policy in his post, Linden’s Age Verification Hypocrisy. While Writer is mostly criticizing the 3rd-party solution LL began to Beta-test in December 2007, and the contradictory policies that surround it, this post makes an interesting setting for me to note that the current alternative to this horrible solution is even worse.

Debbie McCormick, et al, of the Behavioral Studies Department, School of Political and Social Inquiry, Monash University is doing a survey about “people’s attitudes toward law and order in Second Life”. Here are my answers to the free-form questions and some of the multiple choice questions. If you know me, you probably already know my answers to the yes/no questions, so I won’t include them here. I have also omitted any questions that pertain to my real life demographic membership. Read the rest…

Adz Childs’ Internet Presence

analysis, artificial boy, identity, presence 3 Comments

I am not real. I am only an avatar. I am an artificial boy, an approximation of some limited aspects of a human boy, in a virtual world. A real life human controls every aspect of my limited life. That relationship is (hopefully) not public. At any time, he can remake me as an adult, a dinosaur, or a Transformer. Or, he can log on to the Second Life website and delete me permanently. Linden Lab could close its doors, or delete me as well. This makes it especially interesting to see “Adz Childs” develop as a unique identity, with a presence on the web. Read the rest…
