Tuesday, 2 September. So I created a Second Life account today. Actually, I created two. First of all I created the identity 'Marcus Foible', but that was kind of done in haste. I spent about a minute on the decision. I thought, 'What the hell does it matter what I call myself in this place?' And then I was standing around in this place where they send you when you're new, looking at all the names above the heads of others, and I thought, 'Marcus? Marcus? Why the hell did I call myself Marcus?'.
