The Discussion

    You're right, nobody does use Second Life. Except for perhaps some people on Team Aniston.

    That laser tag thing was awesome. And it's in Rotterdam! I knew I recognized that bridge. If I'm not mistaken, they did that on the KPN building, which is actually a pretty cool building even without the projector and lasers. The facade of the building is covered in a matrix of bright green lights, which allows them to display a bunch of images and animatons on it, or things like the weather forecast or the number of seconds until the traffic light for cyclists turns green. The building is huge, so you can see it all from across the river. It's pretty neat, actually:

    Yeah, it's the dancing baby. Sorry.

    Anyway, great ending, by the way. Tongue Out

    Team Aniston's mascot should be the tumbleweed Smiley

    I'm hoping Brian Peek can pull that project off, that would be shweet - That dancing baby video is pretty funny, I wonder if other people knew what that was Smiley 

    And what is it with Rotterdam and cool light shows?!

    I was also a little bit confused. They actually took the picture from my website instead of using my avatar.

    We always try to pick the most "interesting" picture we can find for someone, like using a baby picture for Scott Hanselman Smiley
