For 20 years, Interactive Technologies has been providing perspectives on technology as it relates to communication, creativity and utility. What does this mean? Really, this show analyzes the tools that we use to be creative, intelligent, humane creatures. We discuss news items of timely topics and interview people who work with technology in a variety of fields. Also, there are times when we discuss groups, individuals and legislation that may prevent us from using these tools to their full capabilities. Tune in or check out the archives.

Check this out: Try creating a bulletin with an href to Second Life's SLURL website SRN SL Node 1 The bulletin will never show up. However, if you change that link to anything else, it will. The question is, are they blocking it because the URL go to the Second LIfe site which, when you click on a button there, can open Second LIfe application and teleport you someplace? In other words, security? That seems unlikely since you still have to click on the button at the SL site to trigger everything. The more nefarious explanation is that myspace want to keep people away from the competition.
