At noon today, Extropia Chair Galatea Gynoid declared The Technocratic City-State of Extropia founded, and open to immigrants. We raised the Flag for the first time as the Anthem played, then celebrated with fireworks and dancing all night long!
We particularly welcomed our first Ambassadorial visit, from Vicereine Kamilah Hauptmann of Caledon – which is not to say we loved any of our 46 guests over 7+ hours any less!
Special thanks to those who made the event a success:
– dandellion Kimban, for gifts for the guests, and help above and beyond the call of duty,
– DJ Nicki Petrichor, for donating nearly four hours of magnificent music, conversation and fun,
– Cybergrrl Oh for the official Extropia t shirts
Text of the Chair’s Speech on the Founding of Extropia
Ali Hermes claps
Vannesh Cannoli claps demurely 🙂
iAlja Writer: good evening for some of us 🙂
Galatea Gynoid: My name is Galatea, and as Chair of the Extropia Board of Directors, I’d like to thank you all for coming, and welcome you to Extropia.
Peer Infinity tries to clap, but ends up not making any sound with these arms
Galatea Gynoid: Extropia is a vision of a future community, but more importantly, Extropia is a community vision of the future.
Vidal Tripsa: (Hi, Simon!)
dandellion Kimban: LOL
Galatea Gynoid: Most futuristic sims in SL have a dark vision of the future.
Simonetos Ventura: oh here you are
Simonetos Ventura: lol
Galatea Gynoid: Look for future visions in SL, and you’re likely to find yourself in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, or a grim, cyberpunk dystopia.
Galatea Gynoid: These may be fun places to visit, but if you’re like me, you wouldn’t want to live there.
Galatea Gynoid: Here, we believe the future is bright. We’re positive!
Sophrosyne Stenvaag applaudds
Galatea Gynoid: There are some who say we currently live in a golden age.
Argent Bury beams and applauds
iAlja Writer cheers
Ali Hermes nods
Peer Infinity applauds – using actual hands this time
Galatea Gynoid: Perhaps, but we don’t believe we live at the height of a golden age. We live at the dawn of a golden age.
CyFishy Traveler nods.
Galatea Gynoid: We’ve seen the pre-dawn light. Now it’s time to witness the first rays of the sun as it comes over the horizon.
Galatea Gynoid: This is our future.
Galatea Gynoid: Not a blasted wasteland, but a shiny city on the sea.
Galatea Gynoid: Not an oppressive dystopia, but a techno-utopia, where all people, be they natural, augmented, or aritifical, are free.
Galatea Gynoid: *artificial
Extropia DaSilva: Hmm..Hate to point it out but current trends certainly do not rule out our world becoming a wasteland.
Galatea Gynoid: A place where the cake is not a lie. In Extropia, you can have your cake. 😉
Vidal Tripsa: All the more reason to try for shininess, Extro! 🙂
Argent Bury listens intently to Gala’s speech
Galatea Gynoid: WE will rule out that possibility.
Extropia DaSilva: We are in a race against time. Between human ingenuity and the trasnscending of our broken systems, and the mounting pollution caused by our contemporary industries…but I will shut up now. Sorry.
Vannesh Cannoli TRIES to hear what Gala is saying
Galatea Gynoid: We will build a friendly place we can live and work together in. A networked community, expanding, growing, becoming…
Galatea Gynoid: …becoming something greater than all of us.
Galatea Gynoid: For, you see, we are each nodes in a growning network.
Galatea Gynoid: As we said the other day: We are the Internet.
Galatea Gynoid: We are the community.
Galatea Gynoid: And with each added node, the network grows, becoming something greater.
Galatea Gynoid: We are Extropia. We are the future. And we’re positive!
Argent Bury cheers and claps
Vidal Tripsa cheers.
Galatea Gynoid: Welcome to the future. Thank you all for coming.
Sophrosyne Stenvaag applauds
dandellion Kimban: &me applaudds
Lex Berchot: yay!! *woo*
