I’m listening to fantastic music by RED as I battle against technology and epic Twitter Fail Whaling this last late afternoon of 2011.
In addition to my usual New Year’s Traditions to set a good tone for the coming New Year, I have initiated #virtualNYE – my own campaign in support of the brilliant Twitter-based #NYEathome initiative based in Australia run by Twitterers @prestontowers @Steph_Philbrick & @Doc_Samantha for those of us alone or feeling low during the holidays.
My Crip Island sim in Second Life has a Twitter Wall displaying the #NYEathome feed and there’s also a livestream of worldwide video countdowns. I’m setting up a Flickr photogallery, but below is a snapshot to give you a taster.
Online Events for those of us at home (multi-tasking is the name of the game!):
