Second Life Residents Present Book to New York Public Library

I received an off line instant message from Nasus Dumart this past week, with an announcement for a mixed reality event. Nasus Dumart and Apple MacKay are the authors of "'The Unofficial Guide to Building Your Business in the Second Life Virtual World" and I'd interviewed Nasus just prior to its release for an article that ran in the SL Newspaper several months ago. We'd had a delightful chat that day about the book, its release and of business in second life. Nasus and Apple are also the owners of Molaskey's Pub, a highly popular live music venue in second life where both are very active in promoting music.

An excerpt from her message follows:

"On Monday August 31st 6:30p (EDT) the New York Public Library, Mid-Manhattan Branch proudly will present 'Virtual Life Lessons' with Jay Mahar and Sue Martin Mahar. In Second Life, Jay and Sue are Apple MacKay and Nasus Dumart of Molaskey's Pub. They will be presenting their book, 'The Unofficial Guide to Building Your Business in the Second Life Virtual World' at the NYPL and featuring Molaskey's Pub during a Second Life live demonstration. If you are in the NYC area, you are welcome to attend in real life! This is a NYPL Workshop, open to the public. It is located at 455 Fifth Avenue at 42nd St. 6:30-8p. 917-ASK-NYPL "

We chatted briefly on my next trip in world about catching up after the event for another interview and I look forward to doing so.

Apple and Nasus own Molaskey's with Katydid Something, who has organized the music program for the past two years that I have known the group. Katy is also a talented musician in her own right. She is being left out of much of the press and since she is also the owner of Molaskey's Pub I wanted to give her a mention here.

Thanks for the event posting, Nazz. Glad you were able to be there, virtually.

Chestnut's right, while Apple and I authored the book, Katydid Something developed the successful music program at Molaskey's Pub. Not everyone makes the connection - but it IS an important one. Here's how it was worded in the NYPL flyer, which was widely distributed.

"Known online as ‘Apple MacKay’ and ‘Nasus Dumart’, Jay and Sue teamed up with ‘Katydid Something’ in Second Life®, and together, they created ‘Molaskey’s Pub’, one of the most respected Live Music venues in the Metaverse."

We'll catch up soon, Nazz. Thanks again. Cheers!

Thanks to both Chestnut and Nasus for their comments regarding Katydid's role at Molaskey's Pub.
