    The Guardian for this meeting was Fefonz Quan. The comments are by Fefonz Quan.


    In the morning after Pema's legendary appearance at SL live TV, Adams resumes his cheerleader avatar cotume, including the necessary pom poms and typical gestures.

    Me, and later on Pema himself, enjoy the animated show, while talking about other stuff too.

    Fefonz Quan: hey Adams, Hey buddha
    Adams Rubble: Hi Fefonz and buddha :)
    Adams Rubble: How are you Fefonz?
    Fefonz Quan: very well, and you?
    Adams Rubble: I am good, thank you
    Fefonz Quan: i understand pema was on an SL tv show yesterday evening, did you see it?
    Adams Rubble: Yes, we watched it here. I am still hoarse
    Fefonz Quan: how can you watch it here?
    Adams Rubble: I had two computers. hehe
    Fefonz Quan: :)
    Adams Rubble: Corvi posted the log and there is a link on the log
    Fefonz Quan: hoarse - because it wa funny?
    Fefonz Quan: ah, great!
    Fefonz Quan: i think i will take some time today to go over it
    Adams Rubble: I found a cheerleading outfit in my inventory complete with pom poms...we were cheering
    Fefonz Quan: :)
    Fefonz Quan: hope the chatlog has some imges ;)
    Adams Rubble: I took a picture but it is not posted yet. It is on a different computer
    Fefonz Quan: feel free to send it anytime
    Adams Rubble gives a demo :)
    Fefonz Quan: wow :)
    Adams Rubble: P
    Adams Rubble: E
    Adams Rubble: M
    Adams Rubble: A
    Adams Rubble: Yay
    Fefonz Quan: those pompoms are going through you
    Fefonz Quan: lol
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Adams Rubble: whew
    Adams Rubble: hehe I am still wearing part of the other outfit
    Fefonz Quan: your SL campus uniform?
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: It should read PaB
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Adams Rubble: the quiz show was a bit wierd but what the heck its Second Life :)
    Fefonz Quan: what is the show about?
    Adams Rubble: Pema was on a panel of four who were competing
    Adams Rubble: There were questions and they had to make some statements
    Adams Rubble: It is hard to describe actually :)
    Fefonz Quan: ok, i'll watch it then instead of talking about it :)
    Adams Rubble: but very much like an SL event
    Adams Rubble: complete with furries
    Adams Rubble: Pema was a good sport
    Fefonz Quan: i'm glad to hear. were the other competitors people we know?
    Adams Rubble: No. One seemed to be either looking things up or having someone tell her because there were long pauses and then she would come up with a very detailed precise answer
    Adams Rubble: she was a librarian :)
    Fefonz Quan: well, i guess you can't avoid that in SL
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: She was good at it
    Adams Rubble: I was thinking some of the questions would not be that easy to look up
    Fefonz Quan: yes, google transform ''knowledge' from thinking/remembering to searching
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Adams Rubble: Of course, one can't always depend on the source :)
    Fefonz Quan: sure. it is strage to me, i know some programmers theses days when they have some algorinic issue, even small, search for it on the net instead of solving it
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Fefonz Quan: algorithmic*
    Adams Rubble: That ould be way beyond me either way. hehe
    Fefonz Quan: in a while people will start claiming that you should have your laptop on a job interview
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Adams Rubble pictures them sitting across a desk each meeting each other in a virtual world
    Adams Rubble: at the same time
    Fefonz Quan: remind me of the times calculators came to the market, and i wondered if people are worse at calculating in thehead these days
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Adams Rubble: I am anyway
    Adams Rubble: It worries me sometimes...is that a part of my brain I should be using
    Fefonz Quan: i would guess you didn't have calculators at school
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Adams Rubble: Do you remember slide rules
    Fefonz Quan: no, my father had one. i am in the generation between them
    Adams Rubble: One used to be able to tell a technical person because they had pocket ones sticking out of the shirt pockets
    Fefonz Quan: yep :)
    Fefonz Quan: well, more compact than a laptop :)
    Adams Rubble: but not as versatile
    Adams Rubble: couldn't do art history on a slide rule :)
    Fefonz Quan: yes. i still think the pocket calculator is one of the perfect machines ever made
    Adams Rubble: I had one of the first
    Adams Rubble: It cost $60 could only add, subtract, multiply and divide
    Adams Rubble: It has a 90 day guarantee
    Adams Rubble: and worked for 90 days exactly
    Fefonz Quan: hehehe :)
    Adams Rubble: Hi Pema :)
    Fefonz Quan: i got the scientific one, and they haven't change a bit in 20 year. perfect as it is for its purpose
    Fefonz Quan: hi Pema
    Fefonz Quan: total contradictiv eto the pc culture of upgrading any other year
    Pema Pera: Hi Adams and Fefonz
    Adams Rubble: Yes, once something is perfected no need to do more
    Fefonz Quan: Pema, i here you are a celebrity now ;-)
    Adams Rubble is in her cheerleading outfit from the session last night
    Fefonz Quan: well adams, word 200 was enouh for me
    Fefonz Quan: 2000*
    Pema Pera: hehe, well, thanks Adams for the cheerleading on the chat log!!
    Pema Pera: and here :-)
    Pema Pera: hahahaha
    Adams Rubble: We had fun last night :)
    Pema Pera: Does Fefonz know about cheerleading?
    Fefonz Quan: well, only from american college movies and the 'heroes' tv series
    Fefonz Quan: the cheerleader there is undestructable
    Pema Pera: you look very authentic, Adams, as a cheerleader!!
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Pema Pera: but did I interrupt a conversation?
    Fefonz Quan: not a very profound one :)
    Adams Rubble: We were just musing about technical developments
    Adams Rubble: As a cheerleader one isn't expected to be too profound
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Adams Rubble: just enthusiastic
    Adams Rubble: YAY
    Pema Pera is amused at Adams' typing motions with the large what-do-you-call-them around Adams' arms
    Fefonz Quan: lol
    Adams Rubble: pom poms
    Pema Pera: hahahah
    Pema Pera: ah, yes, heard of those!
    Fefonz Quan: though those are very scifi pompoms
    Pema Pera: a title for the session perhaps, today, Pom Poms?
    Pema Pera: "futuristic pom poms"
    Fefonz Quan: that surely would work ;)
    Pema Pera: that was an interesting motion!
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Pema Pera: clapping?
    Adams Rubble: it is clapping
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Fefonz Quan: they are a little transparent, you know?
    Adams Rubble: are they?
    Adams Rubble: oh I see
    Pema Pera: not so clearly for me
    Fefonz Quan: i see both your hands from where i sit
    Adams Rubble: stop peaking
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Pema Pera: in the clapping the two opposits, red and black, mix quite nicely
    Pema Pera: :)
    Fefonz Quan: yes, no need for pauli principle in SL
    Pema Pera: is there pom pom sound associated with the clapping, Adams?
    Pema Pera: I'm in the train again, so no sound . . . (>_<)
    Fefonz Quan: clapping sound i would say
    Adams Rubble: e pretty quiet but accompanied by much enthisastic yelling and jumping
    Adams Rubble: as on Goooooooo Pemmmmmma!
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Pema Pera: hehehe
    Fefonz Quan: well i already understood my must see for today is your last night sow pema :)
    Fefonz Quan: show*
    Pema Pera: well, a lot happens in one day in SL . . . yesterday morning your amazing report about your experience of falling into an acceptance of things as they are, Adams; then in the afternoon a great discussion about time; and then your cheering session in the evening . . . .
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Pema Pera: is it up, Fefonz?
    Fefonz Quan: i was told so, didn't check yet
    Fefonz Quan: it is posted
    Pema Pera: ah! it would be great if we could make complete movies of all of our Kira events
    Pema Pera: we'd need to find a good cameraperson with time on her/his hands . . . .
    Adams Rubble ducks
    Pema Pera: hahaha
    Fefonz Quan: yes, virtual camera person
    Pema Pera: you have pom poms on your hands already, Adams
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Pema Pera: Adams, to switch topics if I may, have you reflected more on your experiences of the last couple days, or did anything new happen?
    Fefonz Quan: (where are they reported if i may?)
    Adams Rubble: I may be slowing down a little
    Adams Rubble: Reading the logs is having an amazing effect on me
    Pema Pera: I can imagine!
    Adams Rubble: But one thing is does do which is not so good
    Adams Rubble: is that I am flitting from idea to idea
    Pema Pera: replacing your sleep?
    Adams Rubble: and this morning it seemed like I had a short attention span :)
    Pema Pera: yes, I can see that too
    Adams Rubble: I have been trying to see patterns
    Fefonz Quan repeats his question
    Adams Rubble: not quite ready yet Fefonz
    Pema Pera: but there is the blog
    Adams Rubble: they should be there
    Fefonz Quan: so you talk about paB session?
    Adams Rubble: yes my blog is rubblebornthoughts.wordpress.com/
    Fefonz Quan: ah, thanks !
    Adams Rubble: Oh Fefonz. I am writing a Chronicles
    Adams Rubble: and I am reading over old logs
    Adams Rubble: Getting back...
    Adams Rubble: I have broken things down by months
    Adams Rubble: am I not seeing any patterns because they go across months?
    Adams Rubble: or am I too involved in seeing from my own doings?
    Adams Rubble: or aren't there patterns
    Pema Pera: there may be many patterns crisscrossing
    Adams Rubble: I have a couple of weeks yet to figure that out
    Pema Pera: with so many people and so many sessions and no imposed structure
    Fefonz Quan: what patterns are you looking for (and why)?
    Adams Rubble: yes. often we are repeating subjects
    Adams Rubble: any patterns Fefonz
    Adams Rubble: but then with history
    Adams Rubble: being this close one would not be able to see them
    Adams Rubble: so maybe I souldn;t worry
    Adams Rubble: shouldn't
    Fefonz Quan: ah, patterns in our meetings?
    Adams Rubble: Maybe I just keep cheering and waving my pom-poms :)
    Adams Rubble: YAY
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Pema Pera: what fun !!
    Pema Pera: (crossing the Rutgers campus now by train, seeing the half frozen river)
    Fefonz Quan: well, i guess there is some pattern concerning which guardians are at which sessions :)
    Pema Pera waving to Adams
    Adams Rubble waves
    Pema Pera peering out the train window looking for pompoms
    Adams Rubble: yes fefonz
    Adams Rubble: and we guardians change too
    Fefonz Quan: and that might correlate with geographical positions
    Fefonz Quan: but that is not so interesting, i know :)
    Adams Rubble: you mean Europeans having different sessions than Americans for example?
    Fefonz Quan: sure
    Adams Rubble: The different times of day often have a different flavor
    Fefonz Quan: euros,aussis, you name it
    Adams Rubble: but not as different as one would expect
    Adams Rubble: We have become more geographically diverse
    Adams Rubble writes that down
    Fefonz Quan: yes, it is great
    Fefonz Quan: there are people from countries i'v never been into
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: At least one who maybe only one of us has been to
    Fefonz Quan: two i guess
    Pema Pera: yes, when we started out, we had mostly Americans, and only later did Euriopeans and Australians and others join our ranks -- Storm was one early exception
    Fefonz Quan: with an indian and korrean we would cover most time zones
    Fefonz Quan: (well, pema covers japan sometimes
    Pema Pera: Our Korean lives in London . . . Gaya
    Fefonz Quan: ah, i didn't know that
    Adams Rubble: we have visitors from those places
    Adams Rubble: from all time zones
    Pema Pera: yes, curious that we don't have any Indians, though it is a billion-people country with many of them English speaking . . . .
    Pema Pera: and a traditional interest in thigns spiritual/philosophical
    Fefonz Quan: yes, i guess somewhre we can find statistics about thei SL involvment
    Fefonz Quan: their*
    Adams Rubble: They will come :)
    Fefonz Quan: if we buld it ;-)
