Today, Monday 27th July, Designing Worlds is paying the second of two visits to the Second Life Seventeenth Birthday Community Celebration (SL17B) for the last show of the season. Two weeks ago, we looked at the Linden builds; in this show, we’ll be looking at resident builds – just a few, because there were so many wonderful ones!

Join us at 2pm  when you can see the show on the Designing Worlds Vimeo channel at: https://vimeo.com/channels/dworlds and on the Designing Worlds channel at SLArtist at: https://www.slartist.com/browse-dw-videos-1-date.html. Or join us for our Watch Party in the Designing Worlds studios at 2pm SLT.

And here is a little taster – a video shot and edited by Saffia that didn’t make it into the main show …

In the show, we look at the sites that we were involved with – Designing Worlds, One Billion Rising in Second Life, and two exhibits related to Fantasy Faire – the Fantasy Faire LitFest site (complete with Hugh the Troll) and the Fantasy Faire Radio site. And we talk to some of the creators of the exhibits, – the artists Fiona Fei and Ilyra Chardin, and our own Wildstar Beaumont who had a special gallery exhibit, which is really another of “our team sites”!

We also talk to people who are involved in creating sites for communities – Victor Mornington with a site to introduce people to New Babbage, and Asia Connell with the same mission for Camp Italia. And we explore a number of other sites too, both with film and with a fantastic photographic slideshow from Wildstar Beaumont.

Sadly, the Birthday event is now over, but we hope the show will help you re-live it … or sigh over parts you missed! It makes for a beautiful and highly interesting show so do tune in or join us at 2pm SLT at the Watch Party in Garden of Dreams!

Today’s Designing Worlds show will be rather different as rather than show an episode from our archives, Saffia will be speaking live at 2pm to Ebbe Linden, CEO of Linden Lab, as part of the SL17B Birthday Celebrations – and we’d love the Designing Worlds audience to be there!

You can join the live audience at the Auditorium on at the Celebration. The Auditorium is open in three areas – but do get there early – last year it filled up fast!

Or you will be able to see the event livestreamed at: https://youtu.be/quloVw0OVj8

Ebbe Altberg came to Linden Lab with more than 25 years of experience leading teams and creating software used by hundreds of millions of users. After graduating from Middlebury College he went on to work at Microsoft, where he spent most of his 12 years leading teams that created the world’s most popular productivity products such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Office.

Saffia will be talking to him about a range of topics, including the impact of Covid-19 on Second Life, issues of diversity and equality, the situation with Sansar and the economics of Second Life – as well as what we can look forward to in 2020.

And there will be further Meet the Lindens events all week!

  • Tuesday 23rd at 2pm SLT: Patch Linden – VP of Product Operations at Linden Lab
  • Wednesday 24th at 2pm SLT: Oz Linden – Head of Engineering at Linden Lab
  • Thursday 25th at 2pm SLT: Marketing Team (Brett, Darcy, Strawberry, Maveric, and Tara Linden) at Linden Lab
  • Friday 26th at 2pm SLT: Meet the Moles (Linden Department of Public Works)

Don’t miss a new special chance to learn more about the Lindens, with a new series in the Second Life Community Forums, created by Strawberry Linden: https://community.secondlife.com/forums/topic/456100-sl17b-meet-the-employees-social-campaign
