Just because the hallmark of romantic holidays is over, doesn’t mean it’s time to completely abandon the concept of love. We need love in our lives, now more than ever and the Destination Guide has almost every shade of love you can imagine.

You can show love through shopping by dropping into the Madpea International Food Fair where 50% of proceeds will help build a kitchen at a school in Kenya through the Feed a Smile charity.

Explore the Dross Valentine Event on Saturday if you are looking to explore something a bit mysterious and unknown.

And finally, show love through supporting the creations and creators all over the grid some of the newest events and lovingly tended regions are highlighted below.

If your Second Life creation is missing from the Destination Guide, drop us a note at editor@lindenlab.com  or submit your spot via form.

See you inworld, Residents and don’t forget to take loads of pics and share them on our official Second Life Flickr.

While the official start of winter isn’t until late December, the Second Life community isn’t wasting any time in celebrating the holiday season with snow-filled attractions and holiday events.

New highlights include a Christmas Fair, the North Pole and a Winter Bazaar. Thanksgiving is right around the corner, too. The popular Jerky Turkey Hunt returns, as well as an all-new Autumn Fest.

Not quite ready to celebrate the season? There are plenty of other new places to discover including a Veteran’s Day event, an interactive Titanic exhibition, an elaborate ghost hunt and several new art experiences. Where will you explore first?

Summer time makes me think of mix tapes compiling music tracks to create the perfect soundtrack for a long drive to the beach, or an evening out on the patio with friends and loved ones.

The Destination Guide  is a bit like those mix tapes, but set to shuffle so every song is a surprise! You can switch from a cool, mellow vibe to an upbeat number with just a click of the mouse and a teleport to somewhere new. Shuffle away and discover a new place you’ve never been.

Share your Second Life summer pics to our Official Second Life Flickr  where we select our Pic of the Day features.

If you have a place of your own that you want to share with the rest of us, make sure to drop us a note at editor@lindenlab.com or submit your spot via web form.

Sci-fi fans now have a new inworld hub for discovery of roleplaying hot spots in Second Life. The Sci-Fi Museum and Hub is a community-created, centralized starting point for all-things-sci-fi. It’s also one of our top picks for the week from the latest additions to the Second Life Destination Guide.

Another favorite is the latest art exhibition “Ghost” from Cica Ghost, the prolific 3D artist who is known for her frequent pop-up art installations in Second Life. Like a ghost, Cica’s creations tend to appear and disappear quickly so you’ll want to check it out fast before it vanishes.

This weekend, there are also numerous new limited-time events added to the Guide including a new carnival with plenty of rides, a fantasy fashion event, a vintage California-themed experience and a Lunar Festival.

Here’s all of this week’s highlights:

Second Life’s 16th Birthday celebrations continue this week with more fun and events, including an opportunity to meet the people behind Second Life. Here’s your chance to learn more about future plans for Second Life and other behind-the-scenes information via a series of special Town Hall Q&A events at SL16B. 

It all begins today at 2 p.m. with an opportunity to meet Senior Director of Product Operations Patch Linden. 

ABOUT PATCH LINDEN
Senior Director, Product Operations

A Resident since 2004, Patch was born into Second Life in September of 2007.  In his current duties, Patch works to bring the best of product and support based decisions on a daily operational basis to the virtual world platform for Second Life, while maintaining oversight on how all of the various teams within Linden Lab can best work together for the highest good of the Residents and the business.

 

On Tuesday, don’t miss a Q&A with Senior Director of SL Engineering Oz Linden and System Engineering Manager April Linden.

ABOUT OZ LINDEN
Senior Director, Second Life Engineering

Prior to joining Second Life, Oz spent many years developing all sorts of networking code -- eventually including contributions to the development of HTTP and from there to open source SIP (voice over IP). Internet Telephony turned into something of a corporate nightmare, so he looked around for something more fun. A friend who was working at the Lab recruited Oz to help with the open source program. Since he had already played a little with Second Life, he thought that it certainly met the "fun" criteria but he had no idea just how much fun. Nine years later, Oz is responsible for Second Life Engineering and having the time of his life. He is proud to be working on a product that means so much to so many people.

ABOUT APRIL LINDEN
Systems Engineering Manager, Operations

Before joining the dark side and going into management, April was an operations engineer herself for over 20 years. It’s the operations team that handles the care and feeding of the computers that power Second Life.

April has been a Resident of Second Life since 2006, and a Linden since 2013. She adores Second Life and the power that it has to change lives by providing people a safe place to explore themselves, and giving them the courage to change their lives in positive ways.

On Wednesday, you won’t want to miss your chance to hear directly from Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Linden about progress on improvements to Second Life and other developments in the works.

ABOUT EBBE LINDEN
CEO, Linden Lab

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. 

 

It’s all about the community on Thursday as Lead Community Manager Xiola Linden and Marketing Content Specialist Strawberry Linden take the stage.

ABOUT XIOLA LINDEN
Lead Community Manager

Xiola Linden currently handles all things social media and community related for Second Life. A Resident since 2006, and a Linden since 2011, Xiola has seen how both the communities and the product have grown over the years. She truly believes in the unique talent and creativity of the Second Life community. Prior to coming to work at Linden Lab, she worked at a social gaming company heading up community and customer support teams. Working on Second Life has been a dream job come true.

Her role solely focuses on Second Life, and she strives to create tutorials and imagery that will resonate with not only new Residents, but also the current community. 

 

A playlist is available of these talks shortly after they happen, on our YouTube channel. 

 

On Friday, you can meet the Moles who build, script and create content for the Linden Department of Public Works.

Brendan and Morgue countryside.JPG

Pictured: Morgue and Brendan

Was it Madonna who once sang that music makes the people come together? Well, in the case of Morgue and Brendan, it was music and Second Life that crossed their paths! Having met in Second Life in spring 2011, the two quickly made plans to bring their offline lives together by the following summer. (Watch their airport “meet-cute” recreated in Second Life in the video!)

Morgue was involved with the poetry scene, and Brendan was playing live music across the Grid - so it was fate that the two should come together. Their initial spark began when a poem that Morgue had written caught the attention of Brendan’s music manager, who knew these two could make beautiful music together.

Morgue and Brendan.png

“[Second Life] is a way for us to do our art,” says Morgue.

“[It] has never been a pretend thing,” adds Brendan.

To learn more about Morgue and Brendan’s story, watch the latest episode of “Love Made in SL” below.

Since its beginning, artists have found Second Life to be a means of expression - from installations and exhibits like Bryn Oh’s work, to galleries and fundraisers like the Raglan Shire Artwalk  - art has always been a key element of the Second Life Community.

With recent conversations about the ending of the initial iteration of the LEA, and what may be soon to follow in its spirit, it is clear that not only is art in Second Life important to artists, but it is also important to the community.

Acclaimed French artist, Patrick Moya (Moya Janus in Second Life) has an impressive and expansive breadth of work that spans over 40 years, and includes dolls designed for UNICEF, ceramic sculptures, video and projection art, and the work he’s done in Second Life at “Moya Land.”

Moya Land is a space in which he says he can realise a dream - to be a character who lives inside of his own work. To find out more about Moya Land and the artist, watch this Destination video and login to check out the Moya Galleries in Second Life. If you do not speak French, be sure to turn on closed captioning to English.

Just two weeks ago, rain clung like jewels to the barren tree branches in my yard, but today those branches are decorated with delicate peach blossoms and the mourning doves have begun to search for the best places to build their nests. It’s impossible to deny the steady march of Spring, as the days warm ever-so-slightly, and the bees begin to busy themselves with their bee work. 

After you go all Marie Kondo and Spring clean, you may be in search of a few new things that “spark joy” to add to your inventory. 

Bloom is an event that celebrates the magic of Spring - from butterflies to sprites, to the pastels that match the colors of Easter eggs, this grove is full of nature-inspired things that capture the blue sky vibes of the season. With over 100 Merchants sharing their seasonal goods, and grove for those who appreciate the whimsy of a gacha event - there is bound to be something that will infuse your Second Life with a little bee-auty!

For a slice of the Bloom life - you can watch the short Destination video below, then head over to the event before it ends on April 7th!

Today we are pleased to bring Animesh to Agni and one step closer to release.  Since last October, when we first introduced the Animesh Project, we’ve worked closely with the content creator community.   We’ve been holding User Content Meetings where we  listen to your ideas, make tweaks, and fine tune this feature.   We’ve come a long way since then and are excited to bring Animesh to the main grid (Agni) as part of the SLB15 Celebration.

https://gyazo.com/812fad81210f22a7f6290229a0a234f7

Examples courtesy of Silas Merlin

For those of you who are unfamiliar with this project, Animesh is a new Second Life feature which allows independent objects to use rigged mesh and animations, just as you see today with mesh avatars. This means that you can now have wild animals, pets, vehicles, scenery features, and other objects which play animations!

To use Animesh, you will need to be in a region that’s running the latest Animesh simulator build. Currently the enabled regions are those in the Bluesteel RC channel. You will also need the latest Animesh-enabled viewer, which you can find on the alternate viewers page

If you would like to learn more, we have the Animesh Forums where our users have been sharing their questions, ideas, and examples of what they’ve been working on.   We also have an Animesh User Guide to help you jump into Animesh along with a weekly Content User Group meeting. More documentation will be coming soon!

A special thanks to Lucia Nightfire for coming up with the name Animesh!
