I got a message from my pal DJ Doubledown Tandino announcing that he’s going completely "metarati" as SnoopyBrown Zamboni would say. That is, Doubledown is quiting his day job and pursuing his Second Life work full-time. He’s a very gifted DJ, in whatever world you happen to be inhabiting, spinning everything from swing jazz to electronica to 70s funk. Taking the plunge into full-time virtual work is a big risk, despite all the hype about all the money being generated there. But I predict he does just fine.
Check out Doubledown’s resumé that follows if you need some bumpin tunes for your next event…
