Resident build at SL18B, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

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.

Today, Mon 19th July, 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).

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!

Welcome to SL18B, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

Once upon a time the Birthday celebrations were organised by the Lindens; then responsibility passed to the community at large; and now, once again, the celebrations are managed by the Lindens. As a result, there are two kinds of builds at SL18B: “Linden Builds” and “Resident Builds”.

In this episode we take a look at the former. By and large, the “Linden Builds” (which include builds both by the Moles and by leading SL resident designers commissioned by the Lab) 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 Welcome Area – and they were quite spectacular.

In this episode, Designing Worlds pays the second of two visits to the beautiful campsites and design regions that were created for the Relay Weekend that was the culmination of the 2021 Relay for Life of Second Life.

We begin with an interview with Nuala Maracase, Relay for Life Co-Ordinator, who tells us all about the five days of Hope Fest in the run-up to the Relay Weekend, and we explore the regions that were created for this event. We also talk to Silver Howler, who created the Main Stage, and also the Pursuit for a Cure team site (which we saw on last week’s show when we interviewed Stingray Raymaker).

Then we talk to several people as we explore their campsites – Arizona Ballinger-Whiplash of Relay Rockers, and Melina Furehawk of Heroes Helping Heroes, as well as looking at the Designer Area created by Isabella and Jackson Trig, RFL Win, and – a campsite to delight Saffia’s heart – the mer campsite belonging to Sol Existence.
