It’s a mad world

I discovered something unique today. A former Linden Labs employee has made a Schizophrenia simulation in Second Life (if you’re a player, click here to go right there).

It features a walk through a hospital ward with voices telling you “You’re dead!”, “Kill yourself!”, as well as visual halucinations and a little information as well. It’s disturbing, it’s educational and it makes me thank the heavens I have most of my sanity.

What an intersting thing to build and what an interesting project to undertake. Second Life beautifully suits this kind of education and I applaud Nash Baldwin, aka, James Cook, for his work.

    Q. Won't the book get out of date?
    A. No, O'Reilly ebook owners get updates for free for life as the game changes and I edit the manuscript. Others can register their book at O'Reilly.com for $5.

    Q. Does Toady, the designer, approve?
    A. It was Toady who suggested O'Reilly contact me to write the book when they were looking for an author, and he wrote the foreword. He's a big fan!

    Q. Does Toady get a cut of profits? A. I am making donations to Toady each month based on my own royalties. Toady will also benefit from the donations brought by all the new players!
