Listen To InformationWeek's Mitch Wagner Interviewed About Second Life On Radio Slovenia

I got an e-mail the other day from someone who said he's a journalist for Slovenian Public Radio, and he wanted to interview me for a segment he's doing on Second Life. We did the interview Tuesday morning at 9 am PDT, over the phone, for about a half hour. His English was great. I babbled.

I got an e-mail the other day from someone who said he's a journalist for Slovenian Public Radio, and he wanted to interview me for a segment he's doing on Second Life. We did the interview Tuesday morning at 9 am PDT, over the phone, for about a half hour. His English was great. I babbled.

Here's the result.. Click the link that says "RAZLAGA Z RAZLOGOM." I don't understand Slovenian, and I don't understand any languages that are Slovenian. I can recognize the occasional word in the audio, like the words "Second Life," "Mitch Wagner," "InformationWeek," and "San Diego," as well as words like "avatar" and "Internet" with an additional syllable tacked on the end to make them Slovenian.

The whooshing sound in between segments is the sound that the Second Life software makes when you teleport your avatar from one region to another. Nice touch.

Slovenia is a small Eastern European country that borders on Italy. Don't know anything about it? I didn't either. The CIA World Factbook on Slovenia has the lowdown. It sounds like a great country.
