Public Space and Commemoration
Garth Fairchand was a long time SL resident and developer who died last year. Many people use Second Life because they are too ill to move about. It offers a society for them. But it also means that Second Life is a place that has had more than its share of losses. Linden Labs was classey enough to make a public road named after Garth.
The tradition of public spaces commemorating the past and the dead is a central part of true civilization that it is good to see Second Life adopting. It is another small step in the establish of a real community space that might just last out the current decade.
