"Thanks for posting the video! It was great to be reminded of the most important thing I did that day: thank the appropriate people for their hard work and dedication to Virtual World education. Bravo Avalon, Heike, and Fire Centaur! :-)"

When I saw your messages in the activity list to Chris, I knew something must have happened. I was hoping it would be some good news. I've know Chris for quite some time. Have met him in SL first. Then, he joined SL Experiments wiki. In 2009, I invited him to co-moderate the EVO Virtual Worlds and Language Teaching session with us. He joined the team but had to leave because he was so busy. I've always admired him and Paul Preibisch's for their knowledge, skills and projects.

Chris surridge, you were my friend and mentor.  I first met you in person, at PaiChai University, when I was invited to give a talk.  You came into the room, at the back, and was smiling ear to ear when I was talking about Second Life.  Finally, at the end, we introduced ourselves.  You then told me that we had actually met months previous, in Second Life at the first ever Virtual 3d Moodle Moot which you helped organized, - but under the avatar name Christopher Flow.  I was so happy to have met another educator in Korea interested in the benefits of virtual worlds.  Little did I know you would become a great friend and mentor to me.  Before I left, we met in the hallway, and I said I wanted to connect with you again so we could work again... I then got a contract with Sloodle, and during the summer, worked with you retrofitting sloodle, creatively here and there.  Each time we met on skype, we both excitedly talked about what we could do and the possibilities.  When I moved back to Vancouver, we stayed in touch, and the Devil Island mystery was born! Even through the difficult times in adjusting to living in the west again, in Vancouver,  you were there for me, through skype - as a friend.  Chris, I will miss you dearly.  I am so sad that you have left us - I will miss u brother. Rest in peace my great friend! It was a privileged and an honor to have gotten to know you!

Hi Chris,

Thank you for your kind words. I do indeed accept this deep bow for the whole team.
No single person could have done this. This was fantastic team work.

On a personal note, yes, I am slowly recovering. :-)

It was great fun though. We had many special moments and it was very memorable time indeed. I loved the buzz and enjoyed the pre-conference preparations.

I am still smiling a big huge smile.

May I ask you a favor and grant me a glimpse of your island? May I get an invite?

Hi Chris,
Thanks for your message. I'm a doctoral student and teacher in Taiwan. I'm very intersted in using OpenSim with SLoodle for langauge learning. Your project looks really amaing for me who has no idea of programming or SL scripts. Is it possible for me to take a look at your Devil Island on ReactionGrid? I've already had an account and can use Hippo to connect there. Where is your Devil island? Thanks!

Hi Chris, welcome to our Ning. Can you tell us a bit more about your interests in 2nd Life and also could you put up a picture.

Thanks
