More powerfull as ever Twitter was going mad today as in Egypte the internet was taken down. Nothing can stop the world from knowing what is going on. The power of Social Media is showing today. Also in virtual worlds we can watch together the live coverage of all kinds of television stations like I watch through second life the news through Al Jazeera. They are the one that are covering from hours to minute what is going on.
Big Brother might be watching us but thanks to the power of Social Media and its users we are able to watch Big Brother.

More then a half year ago I met an avatar named Karkassus Jigsaw. I met him because of the movie R U There
We saw each other in Amsterdam Premiere of the movie.
In SL we stayed in touch and around December I got a poster of him that soon a exhibition will be opened by an artist called Peter Vos.
I asked him if he had a press release and loved to promote the exhibition but honest I did not pay that much attention as I know now that this avatar and I were going through the same ordeal in RL.
There fore I left SL a little bit behind me.
Christmas passed away with a sorrow heart and I waved this old horrible year goodbye.
Slowly I retuned to the virtual world and yesterday Karkassus proudly mentioned that the exhibition will be opened that night. He gave me a new poster and LM.
Paying more attention to it I Googled Peter Vos and I thought SHAME on me!!
I understood much more now how this exhibition came about and also that in these past three months building it up we were doing quiet the same only in different ways.
I read about Peter Vos and seeing the exhibition in SL I started to recognize some of his beautiful drawings. His amazing drawings specially the ones that is made of a size of a former dutch coin Rijksdaalder.
On this picture of the Rijksdaalder drawings you see a house called Villa Inzicht.
This Villa is recreated and you can go bird watching as that was one of the topics of his drawings and favourite hobby.
Its an impressive exhibition and I hope it will remain so long that everyone will virtually meet this great artist Peter Vos.
I am honoured to have met him in this amazing virtual world through his son.
To see his exhibition follow the slurl "Peter Vos in Second Life"
