Felicia Day

The truth is that Felicia Day does not piss me off, she amazes me. She saw a lack of opportunity so she created opportunity. She felt disdain for gamers, so she created a web series that celebrates gamers. She understands the media of our age.

As the rather dramatic image above shows, my SL Network is so big (number of peeps and density of interconnections) that the SL “bolus” has become “me” and pushed all other connections out much like a star gone nova creating an annular nebula!
