Eno Long Now Blueair

June 14, 2007

I’ve been following the creative pursuits of Bryan Campen for a long time now on Flickr. And somehow have found connections in Second Life. Bryan, aka Cyrus is building a Second Life for the Long Now foundation which will host Brian Eno’s large collection of art work. It was also through Bryan that I found out about Amy Wilson’s water color on Second Life. Via Ryan’s Magnolia I found one of my favorite author’s article on Long Now: http://www.longnow.org/press/articles/Michael_Chabon_-_The_Omega_Glory.pdf

I thought I would send out one of my embedded correspondent Lex for a interview/gchat:
