Moriash Moreau: My Second Life
Sunday, February 14, 2010
Just a quick note: the former Mo-Tech art gallery has now returned as the SkyLounge Gallery, located on level three of the SkyLounge. Drop by and take a look.

Farewell Ordinal
Well, this was a punch in the gut to go with my morning coffee. Evidently, Ordinal Malaprop, one of the most creative builders in SL, has decided to call it quits.

Miss Malaprop was never one for the dramatic flash builds. Instead, she focuses on the small and the elegant. And, of course, the fun. She has always been on my short list of SL personages I wanted to be when I grew up, back when I still had the SL spark. I can't say her work changed the face of the Grid (whatever that means), although some amazing things emerged from her corner Caledon from time to time. But she brought a much needed touch of class to the Grid.

It's heartbreaking to see another Second Life true believer disillusioned. I can't question her reasoning, especially after feeling the same way myself lately. (Not that I would presume to place myself anywhere within a few parsecs of her league.) Like most of the well-wishers on the blog, I find myself hoping she'll find a way back in, on her own new terms.

In the meantime, the Grid grinds on. New builders appear, and others leave. Today, the creativity and the elegance of that work takes a small, but lamentably significant, hit. Farewell Ordinal. Please find your way back soon.

Going out of Business
Folks, I'm closing up shop in SL. Mo-Tech Industries is gone. If you've ever wanted a Mo-Tech Product, but couldn't afford one (which I would find astounding), well, feel free to drop in one last time. The entire Mo-Tech inventory is now available as freebies, for a limited time. Click the link up there at the right to get there.

SkyLounge is still staying around, albeit without the tower to hold it up. Yes, that's right, Mo-Tech Tower, formerly SL's real tallest structure, is no more. Couldn't justify the tier just to keep the monument to my own ego around. Feel free to drop by the Lounge, though. The elevator still goes there. Look for the big green carpet and the SkyLounge sign on the ground in northeast Louise.

Addendum: I couldn't bear to part with the Tower, so it's back, albeit in a somewhat simplified form. I know that's a load off your mind. The shop is still gone, however. It's amazing how many prims were left over after getting rid of all the demo products and signage.
