There are all sorts of landscapes in Second Life - hyperformalist, hyperactive, mechanical, Victorian and sometimes, just sometimes, gentle, natural and refreshing. Linda Kelley, Delia Lake in Second Life, has created a half dozen of those sorts of landscapes. Well, waterscapes, really. She's the Centre for Water Studies on Better World Island (Better World 24, 51, 22). They're tiny perfect habitats full of fish, mammals and flora Linda hopes remind us all how precious water is. In the real world Linda is a success consultant who believes how we move through the world and appear in it can shape and improve our progress, as individuals and as a species. She spoke with me, via Skype, from her home in Boston. If you'd like to learn more about Linda's real life work, check out cultivatingexcellence.com. If you're part of a educational or nonprofit group doing cool stuff in Second Life and would like to be featured in this podcast, or if you just have some show feedback please drop me a line at email@example.com.
