My workplace is planning to make the jump to “new media,” which is to say “online.” Buying banner ads on a few major commercial sites was a big step for them, and suddenly I have managers trying to figure out what Second Life is. They want to engage in participatory networks and have user interaction, although they are shaky on the vocabulary there.
I have been considering how to express “time to cock” in government-speak without saying, “cock.” My manager should know that we will be creating a tool by which ten-year-old boys can send each other crickets saying profane things, both aloud and in text. My current plan is just to go with it. To heck with all restraint, this will be the most often that penises have been discussed (on-topic) in a meeting. I will go in-depth on Second Life, including defining furries, Gor, pony slaves, “attachments,” “cyber rape porn,” and that copyright lawsuit about a sex table with many functions. In today’s meeting, I described how it can be used as a teleconference site, but I should give them an accurate picture. The majority of time and space in Second Life have been devoted to gambling and pornography, and they have been getting rid of gambling.
Or do you have a better idea?
