Essensual die, long live to Essensual!
Essensual life and death (and rebirth!) of a magazine in Second Life: so begins a notecard sent by Bianca Foulon (aka Diana Eugeni) in SL fashion designer well known landmark of the magazine Essensual, announcing the premature demise of a project, Essensual itself, that got more than 8,000 downloads with just two numbers, better with one if you consider that the first was what is called a "number zero". Magazine that you can still download at these websites: http://www.mydatabus.com/public/scarica/00essensual.pdf and http://www.mydatabus.com/public/scarica/01ESSENCE1.pdf.
Born thanks to the intuition and determination of Bianca, the magazine was, as confirmed to us its creator, "married seduced and abandoned" by Itland of Luigi Vandeverre (aka Luigi Griffini, whom through MMS Srl created the Italian Beach Club, better known as Itland, one of the first and most popular of Italian land of Second Life). “Fashion was the magic word that bring the pages of the fashion section curated by myself and that of architecture, art and design edited by Arco Rosca, developed that target so dear to us Italians between rl and sl itself, of which the first two numbers are testimony” explained Bianca, contacted in world.
“Now "corporate" decision much "imposed" by the editorship of the magazine, make sure that my experience with Itland is the last stop, mainly because of the sensitivities in dealing with the issues and in managing the whole story”: the divide “between those who act in sl through dynamic and business by RL and between those who produce contents and also does businesses with them, in the spirit of SL dynamics”, seems to have presented its mandatory account. “People, contents, avatars, events, everything has the value of a few linden. Maybe it's fine, but just to underline what side we are in this game, we say that we are part of the content and the potential of Second Life, people, extravagant or that are unbalanced, who are giving birth. For this release in the near future a number of other ES, always downloadable world but obviously at this point without the direction of Itland, which will undoubtedly have better things to do” is the final comment, halfway between a bitter outburst and a promise that still embodies the power of hope, of Bianca / Diana. That leaves us asking us and he took leave of our friends (and friends) to comment, subscribe, contradict or confirm the story. Also in common than even in the presence of views and different priorities.ShareThis
