Message in a Bottle

On logging into Second Life I received this from Dizzy Banjo, one of the virtual world's virtuoso musicians, and in the spirit of sharing I am passing it along for your attention:

SECOND LIFE IS 5 YEARS OLD !

As part of the SL5B celebrations, Dizzy Banjo and Lillie Yifu are creating "A Message to Second Life". We have created a giant bottle, which we want to fill with all your messages to Second Life. What would you like to say to the entire SL community on its 5th birthday ?
  • What does Second Life mean to you ?
  • How has your Second Life affected you ?
  • What hopes do you have for the future of Second Life ?
You can submit your message in two forms :
- An uploaded audio recording of you speaking your message ( PREFERRED OPTION ! ! )
- A text based message in a notecard

Once we have received your messages they will all go into the bottle and spill out intermittently as part of a fun interactive sound and music installation celebrating the Second Life spirit !

At the end of the 2 weeks of birthday events the bottle will be sealed and cast off into the SL ocean, perhaps it will be found again at SL10B ...

HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR MESSAGE:

Audio Messages :
Watch this easy video tutorial which will explain how you can record your voice and upload your message and give it to us.

Text Messages :
1. Please write your message within 140 characters in a notecard.
2. Make the notecard FULL PERMISSIONS by right clicking on it in your inventory and checking the "copy" and "modify" boxes
3. Goto SEARCH (open the 'all' tab) and type in DIZZY BANJO and click my resident profile ( the top link )
4. Drag the notecard onto my profile.

Note : All messages need to adhere to the Second Life Terms of Service, and be PG in nature.

DEADLINE !!
ALL RECORDINGS AND MESSAGES MUST BE RECEIVED BY :
WEDNESDAY 18th OF JUNE 2008

Thanks for your interest and we look forward to hearing your submissions soon and putting them into the bottle !

A message of 140 characters max... Hmm, that's a Tweet.

Perhaps the plan is to use a variant of the "twitter fountain" to pour forth the texts.
