Today, Monday 26th July, in our second show covering the Second Life 18th Birthday Celebrations, Designing Worlds takes a look at some of the resident-created exhibits that were many and widely varied.

From 2pm today you can see the show on the Designing Worlds Vimeo channel at: https://vimeo.com/channels/dworlds. Or you can join us for our Watch Party in the beautiful Designing Worlds studios in the Garden of Dreams!

Kicking off from Designing Worlds’ own booth, we talk to some of the creators and designers who produced such an amazing collection of builds. We visit two builds that members of the Designing Worlds team were closely involved with – the Fantasy Faire LitFest, and the Virtual Community Radio. Then we explore the sites created by the Bellisseria Bureau of Bureaucracy, the nonprofit Join Me Join Us!, the SLEA, and a number of others too!

Saffia takes a ride around the site in a podcar, and, with some wonderful photographs from Wildstar Beaumont too, we see some fantastic sights, testament to the ingenuity, creativity and imagination of Second Life residents.

In this episode, Designing Worlds pays the first of two visits to the amazing regions regions that were created for Second Life’s Eighteenth Birthday Celebrations (better known as SL18B).

We take a look at the “Linden Builds” (which include builds both by the Moles and by leading SL resident designers commissioned by the Lab) which are represented by “public” areas such as the Auditorium, Main Stage, Tapestry of Time (which this year included a tribute to Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Linden who passed away recently), DJ Stage and the Welcome Area – and, as ever, they were spectacular.

In addition we visit the Hop ‘n’ Shop shopping regions, We also take a look at the preview region showing off the latest forthcoming varieties of Linden Homes (the longed for fantasy homes), and revisit an extract from one of Saffia’s “Meet the Lindens” talks, where she discussed the new Linden Homes with Patch Linden.
