Yay! We are pleased and proud to announce the release of ALTAMODA Magazine, issue two. Rather then bore you with all the details of fantastic content, why don’t you check it out on ALTAMODA Magazine.com


Harriet Gausman: So, Chez, have you been a member of Second Life for long? What made you venture into this fab, multi-coloured world?
Chez Nabob: I’ve been here since late 2005. I decided to check it out because I was fascinated by what I was reading about virtual worlds. Julian Dibbell, a Wired magazine reporter/author, was writing a lot of stuff about MMOs and it sounded incredibly interesting from a social and creative aspect. SL appealed to me most of all because of how easy it was to develop content and because of the built-in economy. When I started talking to friends about it they were like, “Wait, people pay money for stuff that doesn’t exist? Really?”
Harriet Gausman: Were you very productive in your first few months? (Harriet gives a wry smile).
Chez Nabob: It took me a while to figure things out and get to a point where I felt comfortable that I had a complete enough understanding of SL before I started making anything. Before I go to that point I shopped a lot… heh.
Harriet Gausman: What do you feel about the lack of good clothing stores for men in Second Life, excluding your own of course? Why do you think there are so few?
