Right before I left to go in CTCUNI I had this experience. A fellow in a tuxedo came up to me in Grignano books. "This is for you," he said, holding out a black rose. "I've met a lot of people in Second Life, but not very many nice people." I told him there were lots of nice people and that I hoped he'd find them. How interesting - well, I talk to new people many times a week, and give them whatever help and information they want. It varies depending upon their age, interest, proclivities, etc. I've met programmers and artists and people in school.
It's Aids Day and I miss Olmy - he made the Aids Quilt project in SL last year, and told me he'd do it this year again. Of course, I saw that it wasn't happening, and I thought (but not enough) about getting it going myself, but I've had too much to do.
