A very humorous article about iPhone users and their sexual partners: Yo, here’s a vulnerable snap of my iPhone.

I particularly like the last paragraph :D

How to Run a University

Category: Third LevelTeknovis @ 09:51

I read a great quote inĀ File under – ‘Silly comments by middle-aged university managers’ by Ferdinand von Prondzynski:

In his book, The Uses of the University, Clark Kerr, the late chancellor of the University of California at Berkeley, suggested that a university president has three key tasks that the institution’s main stakeholders will expect to see achieved: “sex for the students, athletics for the alumni, and parking for the faculty”. Only the last of these, Kerr suggested, presented a problem.

Ferdinand is of course, the President of DCU, so he should know what is is talking about!

I must use this quote in my Quote of the Moment!

Sex Guide for Avatars

Category: SoftwareTeknovis @ 10:42

The BBC is well known for its in-depth, and meticulous, reporting in articles. It is one of these articles that caught my attention this morning… Indeed, I would go as far as to say it was the most interesting article that I read all week!

The article I am referring to is How do avatars have sex?, and it provides a fascinating insight into how avatars have sex in Second Life! The beginning of the process is:

First you need to buy genitals

I can see why this step is important, but it is not something that I would have thought of before reading the article! Just as in real life, these come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colours. The article then describes how the new purchase can be used:

You can touch and jiggle about a bit and you can emote and gesture in a way the other person would see

The article then goes on the explain the full process, for those of you who are interested ;)

Wow – I really never expected to be writing about sex on this blog (or indeed any blog)! I wonder if sex will become the most clicked tag in my tag cloud ;)
