The Big Chip Awards are doing a virtual awards ceremony in second life – they have a virtual Tony Wilson so he can simultaneously host the Big Chip Awards.
Interestingly enough some one I know is quoted in the snarky register piece about it
chair of Manchester Digital Shaun Fensom said: “As far as we know this is a world first.”
Shaun was one of the founders of poptel a coop when I used to be a member . And Poptel had a certain ,Manchester workerist vibe to it and when I saw 24hour party people it sort of chimed with how poptel felt – apart from the bit with the guns AFAIK.
Haven’t worked at a company before or since that had its own in house rock band and had complaints from the neighbors about band practice ?
