Your name:
Aeonix Aeon | Will Burns

What is your special skill set (what are you known for in SL):
I'm a synthetic environment subject matter expert who has graced such shows in Second Life as Metaverse Week in Review, Spotlight TV with Scorpinosis Nightfire, Friday Night Talk Show and a two time winner on Pooky Amsterdam's "The 1st Question". I've been interviewed for magazines in-world such as Maniera, and by such wonderful folks as Kara Trapdoor, Scorpinosis Nightfire and Mal Burns. During my tenure as VP of Operations for Pulse Point Media, I helped oversee the design and work resulting in the Loyola Marymount University Psychology Island here in Second Life.

Tell us a little about yourself:
As the Vice Chair for IEEE Virtual World Standard group, and co-author of the Association for Computing Machinery research paper "3D Virtual worlds and the metaverse: Current status and future possibilities", I've spent the past twenty years in the industry in and out of various virtual environments. I'm an avid reader, and a bit of an audiophile who loves classic rock. My general interests are in the Arts and Music, of which I'm a fan of various artists in-world such as Bryn Oh, and music artists such as Mandoaa Dragonash.

In my spare time, I design accurate replicas of classic arcade machines in Second Life for private collectors, and in real life I work with various academic, military and aerospace interests on virtual worlds and augmented reality related systems. Currently I am a design lead in-world for the eureka! content discovery system under development with Jon Dragoone, and consulting for a new type of immersive ASMR video series on Youtube with Dmitri of MassageASMR in Australia.
How would you spend your time with the winner of your celebrity auction (for example: give a building demonstration, attend a concert)?

I'm open for attending a concert, visiting an art exhibit, or just hanging out and having a wonderful time in conversation. Maybe all of the above if there is time :) I'm open to suggestions, though I don't do commercial endorsements or porn (let's keep it clean). If you're interested in getting to know me better or are interested in the lush and wonderful history of virtual environments, then let's help feed all the children we can and keep those bids high :)
