Hosts: Sonic­i­ty Fitzroy and Lowe Runo:

We appre­ci­ate all those involved in this project and we con­sid­er it a col­lab­o­ra­tive effort among numer­ous peo­ple inside SL as well as those look­ing in from the out­side. This book is not intend­ed to pro­mote SL, but we seri­ous­ly view it as a major plat­form for the cre­ation of inno­v­a­tive machin­i­ma.

This is not the defin­i­tive voice in machin­i­ma, but a col­lec­tive voice with­in the vir­tu­al film­mak­ing com­mu­ni­ty that rep­re­sents many per­spec­tives. The machin­i­ma sto­ry will con­tin­ue to evolve, and we are pleased to doc­u­ment this point in his­to­ry, as well as to encour­age so many to exper­i­ment with this medi­um through this book.”
