Saint Patrick's Day HISTORY

Saint Patrick's Day


Saint Patrick's Day (IrishLá Fhéile Pádraig (The Festival of Patrick);  is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated on 17 March. It commemorates Saint Patrick (c. AD 387–461), the most commonly recognised of the patron saints of Ireland, and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. It is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland), the Eastern Orthodox Church and Lutheran Church. Saint Patrick's Day was made an official feast day in the early seventeenth century, and has gradually become a celebration of Irish culture in general.
The day is generally characterised by the attendance of church services, wearing of green attire and the lifting of Lenten restrictions on eating, and drinking alcohol,] which is often proscribed during the rest of the season.
Saint Patrick's Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland,Newfoundland and Labrador and in Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora, especially in places such as Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand, among others. Today, St. Patrick's Day is probably the most widely celebrated saint's day in the world.

Saint Patrick

Little is known of Patrick's early life, though it is known that he was born in Roman Britain in the fourth century, into a wealthy Romano-British family. His father and grandfather were deacons in the Christian church. At the age of sixteen, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and taken captive to Ireland as a slave.[12] It is believed he was held somewhere on the west coast of Ireland, possibly Mayo, but the exact location is unknown. According to his Confession, he was told by God in a dream to flee from captivity to the coast, where he would board a ship and return to Britain. Upon returning, he quickly joined the Church in Auxerre in Gaul and studied to be a priest.[citation needed]
In 432, he again said that he was called back to Ireland, though as a bishop, to Christianise the Irish from their native polytheism. Irish folklore tells that one of his teaching methods included using the shamrock to explain the Christian doctrine of the Trinity to the Irish people. After nearly thirty years of evangelism, he died on 17 March 461, and according to tradition, was buried at Downpatrick. Although there were other more successful missions to Ireland from Rome, Patrick endured as the principal champion of Irish Christianity and is held in esteem in the Irish church.

Wearing of the green

Originally, the colour associated with Saint Patrick was blue. Over the years the colour green and its association with Saint Patrick's day grew.[13] Green ribbons and shamrocks were worn in celebration of St Patrick's Day as early as the 17th century.[14] Saint Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish, and the wearing and display of shamrocks and shamrock-inspired designs have become a ubiquitous feature of the day.[15][16] In the 1798 rebellion, to make a political statement, Irish soldiers wore full green uniforms on 17 March in hopes of catching public attention.[13] The phrase "the wearing of the green", meaning to wear a shamrock on one's clothing, derives from a song of the same name.

Last Names for Avatars Hurt SL User Growth & Won't Return, Linden CEO Reveals -- Good, Hamlet Responds

Last Names for Avatars Hurt SL User Growth & Won't Return, Linden CEO Reveals -- Good, Hamlet Responds

  • Last names for Second Life avatars won't be returning,Linden Lab CEO Rod Humble announced, declining calls by the hardcore SL community to bring them back, so that new users would have to choose a surname for their avatar from a selected list of pre-established surnames, just as new users once did, until that sign-up process was changed a couple years ago.
  • Why won't last names return? For a very very good reason, as Mr. Humble explains:
  • I already knew identity is very important, and the last name issue is extremely polarizing. What I didn’t know was how big a negative impact it used to have on new users signing up (the data is startling at how much friction it added). Folks just wanted to create their own name; they became even more annoyed if there was a pre-done last name that could fit but that had already been taken.
  • This is news to me -- if I had known last names had hurt new user sign-ups, I would not have advocated for their return. This also reveals a clash between the cultural desire of the established SL community, to create a meaningful second life identity that's part of a pre-existing world, and the reality that most people interested in trying out SL just want to jump in without any heavy upfront expectations like that.
  • However, Rod Humble did offer a compromise:
  • What we will be doing is adding in at least one and maybe more special characters like a dash when you signup so you can make a more normal looking name. So you can have “horatio-nelson” for example, which is impossible now. Work will begin on this as it slots into the task list.
  • So people can have last names of a kind. Which actually seems more fitting to the SL goal of creating as open-ended a user-created world as possible. Because come to think of it, it was kind of strange that so many longterm SLers actually advocated formore restrictions on others' identity options, not less.

Happy 10th Anniversary, Steller Sunshine, SL's Oldest User

Happy 10th Anniversary, Steller Sunshine, SL's Oldest User

In March 2002 or roughly thereabouts, a web designer and mother of four children from Southern California accepted an early invite to explore a new virtual 3D space called Linden World, and chose the avatar name Steller Sunshine. I write about her in my book, but the ultimate upshot of her first night in-world is an object that still (to my knowledge) exists in Second Life, as the first instance of user-generated content: A giant beanstalk. Last I heard, Ms. Sunshine is still in SL (though perhaps more often in another avatar guise), so if you see her profile in-world, do wish her a happy 10th anniversary.

Bad Sign: Linden Lab to No Longer Publish SL User Stats

Bad Sign: Linden Lab to No Longer Publish SL User Stats

Tateru got a good scoop: Linden Lab will no longer publish quarterly or annual Second Life economy reports. I wondered if that also meant the company would no longer publish monthly unique user stats and hourly usage stats, and asked company spokesman Peter Gray that very thing. And Mr. Gray did say:
Yes, we're no longer going to do the quarterly economic summary blog posts. Here's the official statement: We are discontinuing regular reporting of aggregate economy-level data, because landowners and merchants have told us that the information is of limited value to them. Moving forward, we will instead focus on improved reporting tools that help individuals better manage their businesses in SL.
But the thing is, monthly user and hourly usage numbers are of great value to the broader tech/gaming industry, so if Linden Lab stops publishing those, the company's narrative of SL as a profitable product with a relatively small but dedicated user base will be thrown further in doubt. So I'm not quite sure why the company is doing this, especially after Nielsen reported SL once again in its top ten PC games in the US. But it's hard not to think the overall picture of SL's health is not as rosy. And gives more credence to this analysis from Botgirl Questi, which echoes what a number of insiders have told me in recent months:
