  1. This week we are spotlighting Gabriel da Silva, a Portuguese musician who plays hard rock for consistently packed shows in Second Life. Gabriel comes from a family of musicians, so the decision to pick up a guitar felt quite natural. He has been dedicated to his craft for most of his life, and his hard work has not gone unnoticed. He has won first place in worldwide music competitions, and before COVID, Gabriel was busy touring with his power-trio around the UK and continental Europe supporting the legendary band Anvil. Playing in Second Life did bring some unexpected cultural
  2. Grab your fur coat, this week we are traveling to Vargsången: a strikingly realistic medieval Viking land shrouded in an air of mystery. Vargsången, Swedish for “wolf song,” is a quiet mountain village with a soundscape of native wildlife, strong winds, and the tide. While Camila Runo designed this region to be historically accurate, there are infusions of Norse mythology here and there. For example, Camila tells us that the “residential buildings show how people lived at the time: they slept on hay and furs, all together to share their body heat in winter months, for the same reaso
  3. This week we are taking a look at the innovative niche of maternity roleplaying in Second Life. For those who are curious, the Family Roleplaying section of the Destination Guide is a great place to start exploring options for your potential virtual family. Babies of all skin tones and ethnicities can be found at inworld adoption agencies, and vendors can help you find a bundle of joy that looks like you or even a combination of you and your partner. Once your love bug has arrived, feel free to go all out with tiny clothing and accessories! Chat away the new parent jitters with othe
  4. We have been very pleased to see the response to the return of last names back in April of 2020. Much as we did with the original legacy surnames, we plan to continually update and change the last names that are available for selection. Now that Uplift is complete, we anticipate that the rotation of available options will happen more often. Today some of the older last name options were removed and the following new ones were added: Orlando Incognito Nebula Knickers Aviator Bunny Blackwood Darkheart Amore Suki Venus Evergarden Caboose Dakota Absinthe We
  5. This week we are visiting the southwestern splendor of Marfa, Texas. Creator Valium Lavender, a proud Texan whose family has lived there for generations, had until now “never found the right way to capture my love for Texas in a {region} design.” That’s pretty understandable: given that its land mass is the second largest state in the U.S., there’s a lot of personality to convey. While movies might give one the impression that Texas is defined by cowboy hats, barbecues, and country music, Lavender painstakingly sculpted this region to give Residents a more three-dimensional ex

  7. Just in time for the big game! The NFL Alumni Association has established an all-new presence in Second Life that includes a massive multi-region virtual stadium that will be used for several live events including concerts, player appearances and charitable initiatives. “Sports fans from around the world can hang out, chat and attend events together in Second Life across thousands of immersive virtual world experiences including this all-new virtual stadium built exclusively for this event,” says Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Altberg. To kick off the opening of the new virtual stadium, sever
  8. Happy Wednesday! We’re writing today to remind everyone that we’ll be holding our monthly Web User Group meeting on Wednesday, February 3 at 14:00 SLT in our usual meeting place, where we’ll be discussing our status with ongoing projects such as the cloud uplift and our near future plans for our web properties, particularly in light of the changes taking place in the world around us. As always, we’ll leave plenty of time for Q&A from the community. We look forward to seeing you there!
  9. This week we are given an inside look at the musical project Tia Rungray and the new art venue, Spiralo. Known as Takayuki Noami in RL, Rungray is based in Japan and describes his musical style as “noise classical: this style encompasses ambient, post-classical and noise music.” Rungray tells us that he uses several platforms for creative expression, but he says of Second Life, “I'm particularly impressed by the amount of user-driven creativity that goes on there. The freedom to do so is an important part of what makes Second Life such a great place for me to come up with ideas and
  10. Happy February 1st! Love is in the air...and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! That means it is time for the return of the Isle of View, our annual Dunk-A-Linden & Hug-A-Linden Event, and our Valentine’s edition of Shop & Hop! ISLE OF VIEW The Isle of View is our annual tribute to all-things-romantic via four regions filled with forested walks, cozy nooks for cuddling, and romantic swan boat rides.

  11. We've added an adorable new design to our merchandise store in honor of the month of love and the romantic possibilities of Second Life. This stuffed bear is emblematic of the warm connections so many Residents find in SL. Give yourself a positive reminder that love comes in many forms with a coffee mug to start your day, or a pin on your backpack. Our furry friend will be available on a variety of custom accessories for a limited time, so hop over to our official merchandise store today.
  12. This week we are raising awareness for the COVID-19 information center on Inspiration Island. Lissena, who also goes by Wisdomseeker, guides us through the colorful and comforting realm of Inspiration Island, which she created with many other volunteers to promote wellness in a fun and accessible way. In this region you can also find Whole Brain Health, which Lissena describes as “the virtual arm of our nonprofit Ageless Mind Project. Our mission is to give people the tools to stay sharp, active, and healthy, based on research coming from neuroscience, gerontology, positive psycholo
  13. This week we are whisked away to the roleplaying community of the Ancient Order of Centaurs. For those who may not be familiar, Centaurs are half-human and half-horse, found prominently in Ancient Greek mythology. Centauria was created by Julala Demina, a longtime Resident and aficionado of fantasy roleplay. Her fantasy creature brand Jinx has been active in Second Life for over a decade. Julala states that about two years ago, “I taught myself how to make my own Centaur skeleton rig in Blender and how to animate it,” which sparked the beginning of a region dedicated to this communi

  15. This week we are traveling around the globe and through time through the extensive David Rumsey map collection. David Rumsey, President of Cartography Associates, has been an avid collector of maps since the early 1980s. According to his website, the collection “contains more than 150,000 maps... Items range in date from about 1550 to the present.” The digitization of archival materials has made historical content more accessible, and Rumsey had the keen foresight to create an interactive experience with these maps in Second Life. Rumsey states, “We built the 4 {regions} in 200
