They offer live discussion panels, interactive forums and tutorials on Second Life photography, windlight settings, photoshop, website maintenance, transitioning into vlogging, syndication, etiquette and much more are already scheduled.

We show some examples from some of their presentations – and we also look at some of the technology being used in the Network and the blogging world, such as Discord and the inworld blog management tool Blogotex – which Kess demonstrates for us.

And then, of course we talk about the Bloggies!  We’ll be posting a full list of the results here after the show goes out!

It makes for a fascinating show – so do come and join us at 2pm!

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 Designing Worlds blog.

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 9th October, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, where we will be exploring the beautiful Riviera Estate – and the amazing funfair that is a part of it!

With the escort of the owner, His Royal Majesty King Brick Haworth-Masters, we will be exploring his lovely house and grounds – but we’ll also be visiting the amazing funfair he hosts up in the sky – and trying out a few of the rides.

Entrance to the Funfair

Entrance to the Funfair

The estate is attached to the beautiful – and exclusive – Grove Country Club, and the proper entrance to the Estate is located at the gates there – leading to a gondola trip followed by a carriage ride to bring us to the house itself.

Both the house and the funfair are open to the public, as are the concerts in the grounds (one of which we are able to join).

Dancing at Garden of Dreams

Dancing at Garden of Dreams

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we host one of our periodic episodes to look into the past at some of our previous shows – is now on the web!

You can see clips from our shows over the last year, some funny, some poignant, some informative and some, we think, very important in showing the potentials of virtual worlds. Aisling, Elrik, Saffia and Wildstar chose their individual favourites – and there were some that we all agreed had to be included!

And Wildstar has created a very special slideshow to accompany the show!

Designing Worlds is back for our autumn season – and we have some interesting shows lined up that will take us to a range of locations in Second Life … and to other virtual worlds as well!

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 18th September, for the first episode of the new season of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, where we will be looking back to the Relay for Life of Second Life Weekend held in July, looking at some of the stunning builds that were created there, and talking to just a few of the many, many people who were involved!

The Relay for Life weekend is the pinnacle of the annual campaigning for Relay for Life of Second Life, with the track running around amazing builds created by the organising committee, and past the stunning campsites created by the individual teams. We’ll be sharing builds that are beautiful and builds that are informative … and builds that are a micture of both!

It all makes for an amazing start to our new season, so join us at 2pm SLT in the studio.

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 17th July, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, where we will be learning all about the special Second Life educational establishment that teaches you all about building (and much more) in Second Life – Builders Brewery!

We visit the Brewery with Sensuous (Sen) Maximus who explains something of the history of the Brewery, and also the different elements on offer, including stores stocking materials for building, a sandbox and a terraforming area. We visit classrooms and Saffia actually attempts a class and discovers how to build a special summery creation!

We also talk to Yen Verhoeven who is carrying out research for her Ph.D thesis on Virtual Learning: An Application of Constructivist Grounded Theory to Explore Emergent Learning in Second Life through studying what forms of learning emerge through the practices found at the Builder’s Brewery as part of her work towards developing a virtual theory of learning.

It all makes for a fascinating show, so join us at 2pm SLT in the studio.
