Subject: Preserving Digital Culture : MOOs in particular
I wonder if subscribers to Humanist would know about any efforts to preserve MOOs.
LinguaMOO a few years ago went off-line.
In lieu of a requiem, allow me to quote
from an evocative piece called "Mirage"
A glimmering of sunlight, a candle in the rain,
Just enjoy my company, I don't want to give you pain.
Like alfvar or faerie, I have no heart to give.
I cannot truly love you, for I do not truly live.
attributed to Stardancer at LambdaMOO (last logged-in in 2000)
Eerie and fitting as we approach All Hallows Eve.
Francois Lachance, Scholar-at-large
