As the Second Life Newser approaches it's twelfth anniversary, there is much to look back on. We have reported much on the People, Places, Events, and things across this virtual world over time. And perhaps a little about ourselves. Gemma Cleanslate and Bixyl Shuftan have been here since the beginning. But there were two others at the start who are no longer with us. Shellie Sands was noted for her poetry and love of pet bunnies. Grey Lupindo wrote about various places around Second Life, including her home community of Syzygy. Today, we look at these two founding members of the Newser.
