Geek Meet - the Celeb Edition?
- MSo Lambert and Sensual Casanove from Synthetic speaking on the Subscribe-O-Matic.
- Navillus Batra, aka Jacob Sullivan of i3D demonstrating the brand new LSL unit testing tech that Linden Lab commisioned his company to build.
- Felix Wakmann and Diva Canto of the SLBrowser giving a demo of the new 2.0 version.
Since this was a first (full) voice edition, it was a bloggersnightmare, but a great show once more.
The Subscribe-O-Matic is basically tying to work about a couple of problems business owners face when trying to use groups to stay in touch with their customers, or potential customers. It is a networked system of devices that sellers can use in their shops, which customers can simply touch to "subscribe" to their Subscribe-O-Matic list
The best way to say something on the Unit Testing done by i3D is by giving a quote from Metaversed:
"Scriptors will be able to plug individual units of code into the system and stress test and debug with verbose reporting. They'll even be able to track individual functions performance within different units, helping to narrow down bug hunts, and tune performance of complex apps. "

The final stand was made by Felix Wakmann on the SL Browser, which is to some extend a mash-up of the Metamart hud and the Electric Sheep Search Engine.
Perhaps due to the talks on i3D's testing unit the Geekmeet turned out to almost being a celeb-edition with several Linden employees attending and also Aimee Weber was sighted.
Aric Linden, Linden Labs' QA has enjoyed working with i3D pretty much:
"We've really enjoyed working with them and we're very excited to be able to collaborate with folks. We hope to be doing more of it in the future."
Aimee has told me a few weeks ago that she was too busy to keep up with stuff, but has been meaning to come to one of these events for some time now. This time she finally found some time to squeeze it in her busy schedule.
