Thought it worth noting that Second Life resident Jordan Witherspoon passed away recently at the age of 28. Jordan was a member of the Alliance Navy, a really intersting role-playing group that was committed to policing portions of SL on its own (though opinions as to its beneficence differed, depending on which end of the policing you were on). We covered the Navy and related groups several times in the Second Life Herald. Jordan’s passing was marked by a memorial that drew some 200 SL residents. As noted on eightbar (where I first read about this), our thoughts are with Jordan’s family.
