If it hasn’t already aired by the time you read this, remember to check out today’s Morning Show with Mike and Juliette to see me talk about cyber rape (or just make a fool of myself) on national television. Once I find a YouTube link, I’ll be sure to post it for all those Heroine Sheik readers–like myself–who think mornings are times for sleeping. Wish me luck!

Update: Here’s a link to the segment straight from The Morning Show’s site. Personally, I haven’t had the heart to watch myself yet, but the rest of the world is free to point and giggle. Thanks, Scott!

    Ahhh! I was watching the Mike and Juliet video and it cuts you off right as you were saying, “in second life it’s very hard for someone to get your avatar to do something you don’t want…”

    I had been wondering with all the lawsuit and SL stuff happening last week, how easy it is for folks to ‘take control’ of other avatars.

    I’m waiting eagerly for the youtube versions….

    Great job!

    They posted the segment on the official Morning Show site. Check it out here.

    No Youtube version yet, as far as I can tell.

    I’m just happy I managed to slip something about that in :). Of course, then there are the things, I don’t know how they came out of my mouth–like the “potential violence of s/m”…? Come on Bonnie, you hate it when people say things like that.

    In the clip you were awfully composed and elegant. If I were in your position I would have been unable to contain my snickering and eyerolling when they started playing all of that sinister techno music.

    And yeah, thank goodness you said “It’s very hard to have something happen to your avatar that you don’t want.” I mean, I really don’t think it’s that aberrant to enjoy playing rape or age-play or any of those things. I always figured that average normal people occasionally do things like that (or even regularly) in their real-life marriage beds. But then they showed the faces of the middle-aged housewives of the audience and they looked somewhere between thoroughly confounded and utterly horrified.

    You did good. You should watch it!

    Well, that was certainly…interesting. You did a great job (and looked so mature!), and it was clear the hosts were actually interested in the discussion (as opposed to simply running through a list of questions). It’s a shame the clip was cut off.

    You were great!

    Argh, it is frustrating that the video cut off right when the discussion seemed to really get going.

  7. Bonnie Ruberg Says:

    Thanks so much, you guys! I just got off the phone with my editor at the Voice, and I was trying to explain why I hadn’t watched the clip myself (flash backs of old, video-taped middle school plays, I suppose), but now I feel much better :). It was a tiny appearance in the overall, but hopefully a few important statements made it out there.

    […] about Scottypedia (which is now technically possible thanks to my awesome hosts!). In recent news, Bonnie was on national television, and I’m starting as a full-time Joystiq blogger next Monday. We’re also moving to the […]
