Aether Salon - Virtuosity!

On March 18, the Aether Salon gathered to listen to Mr. Steadman Kondor discuss his evolution as a creator in Second Life. Though starting as a publisher (a profession he continues to this day), Mr. Kondor moved into the area of the visual arts. He discussed some of his projects, including several that he has exhibited in that realm of tears sometimes known as Real Life, and explained some of the tools he uses, including something called the Shop of Photos (or a name near enough to that - my notes are a bit messy at this point).

Apologies for the odd appearance of some of the daguerrotypes below. I wish I could blame the camera for being out of focus, but I fear the new viewer I was using was having difficulties rezzing textures. As the saying goes, it's not you, it's me.

A transcript of Mr. Kondor's talk will soon be (or likely already is) available at the Aether Salon's aetheric presence.
