... and so I entered a new world, without the white suit I usually wear. And since Blue Mars' Welcome Area seems tropical enough, why bother wearing a shirt at all? It was empty when I entered, but eventually, my old friend Rodion Resistance, a well known artist from Second Life, appeared, and brought along a gaggle of friends. Soon we were talking with a guy nearby, who was standing on a rock wearing angel wings and gold tights, but that's another story.
This is only the first stop in a long journey through the emerging community that is Blue Mars. Question is, where should I go next, and why? I ask that of the original Martian colonists who arrived earlier than me -- please share in Comments of this post, and I'll go forward from there.
