The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we explore the fascinating and diverse mainland community of East River – is now on the web.

The East River community is located on the Sansara Continent, just to the North of the Sea of Fables, and it’s a remarkable place – and a remarkable achievement too.

Because what makes this community so fascinating is that it’s not part of an island estate, privately owned and managed with a Covenant to make sure that there is consistency. This is a mainland community, created by residents coming together and protecting a tract of land that now covers nineteen sims, all brought together as the East River Community.

With the assistance of a longtime resident, Drewski Northman, we explore some of the residential and commercial areas, the art that forms an important part of the community, and aome of the amazing transportation systems that link the community.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – our very special 250th episode – is now on the web.

Set on the island of Matanzas (which we first visited in our THIRD episode way back in 2008), we talk to Ebbe Altberg (aka Ebbe Linden), the CEO of Linden Lab, about Second Life, and about plans for the future platform.

It’s a full and wide-ranging discussion, as we discuss the future of Second Life, problems that have arisen – especially failures of communication – and, of course, the new platform that is being developed by Linden Lab.

You can read a full transcript of the show, kindly compiled by Inara Prey, here. And after the show, Ebbe dropped into the Designing Worlds studio for a discussion and an open question and answer session – our thanks to him for coming in – the audience really appreciated it!

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – visit the wonderful new home that Froukje Hoorenbeek has created for Dutchie – is now on the web.

It’s a magnificent build that has been two years in the making.  Froukje has released various pieces and sets over the last two years that were created for the house – and many have found their way into homes across the grid. But now, for the first time, all that creativity is drawn together in one magnificent home – and Designing Worlds was given the opportunity to explore it.

And as we explore it, we talk to Froukje about how she designs and creates, and the role that her life in the Netherlands plays in her creations.

You’ll be able to see this magnificent house for yourselves at the Home and Garden Expo.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we look back at the stunning builds that we saw at the Relay for Life of Second Life weekend at the end of July – is now on the web.

Sadly, we only had time to visit a few of the great builds, and talk to a small number of the talented creators behind them – we just wish we could have shown everything. Thankfully, our wonderful photographer Wildstar Beaumont was on hand to ensure that we have many more on our slide show!
