Inauguration of RMB City’s second mayor: AlanLau Nirvana
Date: 18th April, 2009, 11am (Beijing Time)
17th April, 2009, 8pm (Second Life Time)
Venue: People’s Bank, RMB City
Ladies and Gentlemen,
AlanLau Nirvana (RL: Alan Lau) is going to be RMB City’s second mayor after UliSigg Cisse (RL: Uli Sigg)—the first mayor of RMB City. RMB City will have a Mayor inauguration and handover ceremony at People’s Bank in RMB City at 11am, 18th April 2009 (Beijing Time) to give a warm welcome to the new mayor and express RMB City’s gratitude to our wonderful first mayor UliSigg Cisse.
In the past three months, our first mayor UliSigg Cisse experimented the reciprocal “becoming” process between human and a virtual city through his values. As RMB City’s soon-to-be new mayor, what will AlanLau Nirvana bring to the virtual city which involves sampling of various Chinese cities and whose urban plans are “planning without plans” ? AlanLau Nirvana, who works in the financial sector in reality, when encountering Second Life—a virtual platform partially overlaps with the real economic system through its currency (Linden Dollars)¬¬—what new interpretations will come up?
We sincerely invite EVERYBODY to join us at this special event.
See you there.
RMB City Team
