Join us at 2pm today, Monday 23rd March for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, when we’ll be meeting Patch Linden and exploring the fantastic builds created by the Linden Department of Public Works (otherwise known as the Moles).
The elusive Moles are creative residents of Second Life who – with special Mole surnamed avatars – work on Linden infrastructure, events and gifts. Recently, a special island for the Moles has opened, known as the Meauxle Bureaux, which residents can visit.

But the work of the Moles extends over (and under) the mainland, as well as projects around the Portal Park – like the Haunted House for Halloween, the Winterfair, the Linden Realms and the Cornfield. They have worked in partnership with residents on major developments like Bay City and Nautilus.
We talk to Patch Linden about the work of the Moles, and about his own work at Linden Lab. He talks about the future of Second Life (as its own entity – and in relation to the new platform Second Life are buildingg) and about plans for development within Second Life – including in the Welcome Areas.
