We talk to the organiser of the Expo, Nikki Mathieson, and to Stingray Raymaker, the ACS representative in Second Life, who tells us about some of the changes Relay for Life in Second Life has seen this year. We also talk to two of the designers who were at the Expo – Robert Galland and Cassie Eldamar, and of course, there’s a lantern release to see!

And there’s plenty to see of the Expo itself, including a fantastic slideshow from Wildstar Beaumont.

Make sure you don’t miss it – by joining us at 2pm SLT.

Or – if you can’t attend in person – tune in to the web at 2pm SLT on Monday for a showing on SLartist – or catch it later in the week on the SLArtist.com channel, the Aview TV Designing Worlds channel – or on the Prim Perfect or Designing Worlds blogs.

Saffia and Ebbe discuss the different elements of this – looking in some detail at proposed changes to the structuring of the Second Life economy – something that will affect us all.
