Enjoying Bondage June 2018 – Diomita in control

For this month’s enjoying bondage series I assembled a picture picking up the main activities of June so far. I had a long green light being in full control of our subs and slaves and of my very owned mistress, wife and property Jenny, Mine, who I collared as my slave more than ten years ago.
I had several occasions getting very close with my niece Angelique and I can tell, that we both enjoyed it. slave Flo and Anne added some particular fun being Rubber Rocket Dolls. We also had dani around us, who was trandformed into Rubber Rocket Doll after being hit by one of slave Flo’s rockets. slave kelly was also often inworld. She changed over the last months and fully submitted to Jenny and me willingly and giving up any reluctance.

For the picture I selected a backdrop that I found at Backdrop Village during my simploring of May 24th (read here). From left to right I added:

Jenny nicely tied up and gagged

Designing Worlds in conversation with Ebbe Altberg – Transcript + Audio

Thank you Inara for this blog post! I appreciated to read this summary on SL’s future and what is on stock for us.

Ebbe Altberg in conversation with Saffia Widdershins

On Tuesday, May 15th, I was able to sit-down at a closed studio recording session which formed part of Design Worlds’ 10th anniversary. The programme featured special guest, Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Altberg.

Ebbe had accepted an invitation to answer questions to him by Saffia Widdershins, focusing on the upcoming 15th Anniversary celebrations for Second Life and the infographic and roadmap blog post issued by the Lab in  April 2018, although Sansar was also touched upon as well towards the end of the session.

The questions were a mix of those submitted to Designing Worlds ahead of the session, and those formulated by the Designing Worlds team. What follows here is a transcript of Ebbe’s responses to the questions, with a précis of each question and an audio extract from my own recording of the session.

A summary of the topics / comments is…

Enjoying Bondage May 2018 – The Maurer family

I always try to come up with something new or special when selecting or creating the “enjoying bondage” picture for the month. But so far we had no particular bondage scene or any bondage night in May 2018.
I scrolled through my pictures and decided to create a collage again which contains some of our highlights of the first three weeks of May.
slave Flo became a drone once again and enjoys the silence and watching the scene.
We had Angelique with us a lot and I changed her outfit several times.
Also slave kelly was quite often inworld and she got a new and quite mean butt plug.
We didn’t see our Kitty and our slave slut cecy often unfortunately, but both stay in touch and were inworld.
Last but not least Mistress Jenny put me into a Long red light again in May.

No, we’re not that many in our family *winks*.
From left to right: slave drone Flo, Angelique, Mistress Jenny, Diomita, Kitty, Angelique, slave Flo, Diomita, Mistress Jenny, Diomita, slave kelly, slave slut cecy and slave kelly. The background is a dungeon at Dark Estate, which I visited together with slave Flo on May 3rd (read here).

Enjoying Bondage April 2018 – slaves and drones

For this month I selected two “Enjoying Bondage” pictures. The first is based on slave kelly fixed in a steel frame at home to absolute inmobility (see Diary 2018 (62)). I added slave slut cecy suspended from the ceiling and I added the two “Easter” drones Flo Drone and Drone Flo. The collage sums up our bondage fun of the last weeks pretty well.

The second “Enjoying Bondage” picture is more personal. I enjoyed some self bondage at “Mastering the Zen”  and I think it’s worth an entry for our enjoying bondage series.

Diary 2018 (57) April 1st – Mario’s Easter Light Show

I had an invitation to for Sunday, April 1st, Easter 2018, to visit Mario2 Helstein’s Easter Light show. Angelique accompanied me to the event, which was once again at the Theatre On The Hill. Mario presented an amazing show again. The light effects are breathtaking, the music is selected thoughtfully. There were quite some elements that I saw in previous light shows of Mario, but it looks different from every angle, and different if you zoom in and out – and even more important, you I can’t get enough watching it. Following the show was a real Easter event for me.

Of course I took dozends of pictures again, much more than I can show here. I got the link to a videotaping of the whole light show from Mario a couple of hours after the show. The video was recorded by Peet Auer. There you can get an idea how amazing the light show looks like seeing it live.

And the next day I got the linkto another video showing some parts of the Easter Light show at the Theater In the Hill. This video was taken by Suzie Anderton of InWorld Films.

Thank you for the great show, Mario!

Ebbe and Oz talk Second Life in the cloud

Second Life moving into a cloud? I first thought, that will not change a thing for me as a user. But it does in several ways. First of all, Linden Lab will be able to turn fix costs into variable costs. That might help them to increase earnings and hence helps to keep Second Life running. Good News!
But there’s more that might change by the move. Nowadays Linden Lab’s revenues mostly depend on land tiers and as land is quite expensive it limits growth – revenues are more likely decreasing today. The move into a cloud might offer new pricing models based on usage, something that doesn’t frighten most users off as much as regular recurring payments do.
Right now the move into a cloud is decided but there’s no fixed date for it yet. The plans about a new pricing model aren’t yet fixed either, there’re just some ideas out so far.
Inara Pey’s blog post gives us some insight of what to expect. I look forward to the change and I hope it will be a smooth move with only little unavailability of Second Life.

It’s a huge effort. Right now the Second Life grid is a proprietary set-up in a hosting facility that we have customised for the purposes of what we’re doing – which made sense a decade and half ago. But these days, with the services from Google and Amazon and Microsoft with cloud infrastructures, it makes a lot of sense to shift our technologies to be on top of those cloud infrastructures instead of having our own.

Ebbe Altberg, VWPBE, March 15th, 2018.

That the Lab is working on moving Second Life to the cloud is becoming more and more widely known. First mentioned by Landon Linden (aka, Landon McDowell, the Lab’s Chief Product Officer) during his SL14B Meet the Lindens session, it was “officially” announced in August 2017 via a blog post.
