The latest episode of Designing Worlds – an important and timely discussion on preserving Second Life – is now on the web!

We’ll talk with guests Patch Linden, of Linden Lab; Ran Heinrichs of the University of Washington’s iSchool; Arik Metzger, the owner of Innsmouth; and Tymus Tenk, the co-owner of Calas Galadhon.

And we’ll be discussing the how and why of preserving iconic Second Life builds – and what, indeed, makes an iconic Second Life build.

What is Linden Lab’s role in this? Should they have a role? And what can residents on the grid do to preserve the places they love? Just how hard is it to preserve a beloved build?

Our guests discuss these issues and more, sharing their own experiences and their hopes too.

It makes for a fastening show – make sure you take a look!

Designing Worlds is now on a break until the end of April when we’ll be returning with a show all about Fantasy Faire!

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – as we visit the beautiful island of Rocca Sorrentina, an imagining of a late eighteenth century island in the Bay of Naples – is now on the web.

We are joined by two of the people behind Rocca Sorrentina (or Principal Magistrates as they are called) Aldo Stern and Sere Timeless. They take us on a journey of discovery as we learn about the rich culture that flourished in the Kingdom of Naples (much visited on the Grand Tour), and the history that lay behind it, reaching back to the lost cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, destroyed by the volcanic eruption of Vesuvius.

And we also learn about the culture and exhibitions staged by Rocca Sorrentina, as Elrik explores a fascinating exhibition on the history of the Tarot … and we learn of upcoming exhibitions too.

We did have a show long ago at the old Looking Glass, which you can see herethe 2011 show. But recently Marcus and Sharni have done a complete redesign that has been two years in the planning, and several months in the execution and – as we discovered when Marcus showed us around – the end result is gorgeous.

Sharni was unable to join us (she’s based in Australia and was soundly asleep when we filmed) but Marcus was able to share with us many of the beauties and the fun things that await visitors to The Looking Glass. It makes for an amazing eye-candy episode as he shows us the Art Gallery, the hidden upper streets, the towers, the bridge, the performance areas, the landscaping … and we certainly didn’t have time to cover everything!
