The Greenies go Public
Today I had an exciting talk with Jonathan Himoff, the founder of Rezzable, also known as RightasRain Rimbaud inside Second Life. The company's website itself is empty for now, but he was kind enough to send me the new corporate logo.
Since I posted on the Greenies - the softlaunch, it hit the blogosphere quite massively. Here are some posts:
- Caleb Booker: Rezzable’s Big Gamble
- VintFalken: The Greenies found a Home at Rezzable
- Second Life Insider: The Greenies
- Metaversed: Things to Do visit
- Second Life Crew: Honey, I shrunk the avatars!
The Greenies are getting a buzz. Aside from some criticism and crooky post in the Herald, I've heard nothing but cheers for the Greenies.
Me taken by Verde, one of the candid camera greenies.
Official opening party
Vint Falken wrote on her blog that she met up with a few people on the opening party, but here's the news: The official opening party still has to come!
Rezzable's official Opening Party: July 31st.
There will be a press preview around 12 am SLT and Jon really got me going for this one. There will be reveiled a sculpture of spectaculair nature, one like you've never seen before.
I jumped and said: "lemme see, lemme see", but his answer was: "Sorry mate, you'd be dying knowing and not be able to blog it."
Shortly afterwards there will be the official public launch.
Rezzables Proof of Concept
So, who's behind all of this? Caleb Booker a.k.a Onder Skall asked in his report. Is Rezzable doing this for a company? Who's putting up the cash? I asked Jon if this was a signed contract or just an expensive business card.
The Greenies is a Rezzable sim allright, no contractor, just purely a statement by Rezzable, but not to be viewed as an expensive business card, but their Proof of Concept. Rezzable wants to make sure the (virtual) world knows Rezzable is able to write a new chapter in User Experience.
The chapter will continue, there are more sims coming up!
Rezzable is hiring
Finally, if you're out there thinking "I can do this too!" give RightasRain Rimbaud a call inside Second Life as Rezzible is hiring. Rezzable is a new, small, London based firm with great ideas and projects coming up.
