Second Life to Be Featured on Dr. Phil
Well, I'm not sure how to get this whole post and pic to share into Blogger but see more here: https://community.secondlife.com/t5/Featured-News/Second-Life-to-Be-Featured-on-Dr-Phil/ba-p/2947485
The SL featured news blog in the link above talks about how talk show host Dr. Phil will air an episode tomorrow 7-14-15 about a young man struggling with a number of problems, including an addiction to playing an online game. Thankfully the blog post says, " He’s not a Second Life user, nor is Second Life presented on the show as a negative experience. Instead, it’s shown as an example of how far digital experiences have come from the days of Pac-Man and Pong, and Ebbe briefly speaks with Dr. Phil about some of the incredibly positive ways Second Life is being used by people around the world - from education to entrepreneurship, creative self-expression, and more."
Apparently Dr. Phil will be in SL on an avatar and will be seen on a 40 ft. monitor. According to the post he had some help stying his avatar to look like him. Tune in!
