  1. We heard your requests, and we are very excited to announce the launch of the Official Second Life Merchandise Store, which will be available through RedBubble. The store offers Second Life and Linden Lab branded clothing and accessories, with a very inclusive range of sizes. Don’t worry, we will have both the classic and new logos, so everybody wins. As the store grows, we will also be adding various collections of designs, some of which will be limited time seasonal offerings. Our first collection will feature Linden Bear-themed merchandise, and will have new designs trickl
  2. This week Asiza Wolf takes us on a tour of her floating Islands of Love, a seamless amalgam of her varying cultural interests that features steampunk ships, meditation areas, a concert stage, and more. Asiza’s real life alter ego, Toni Harper-Dunlap, is a former professional singer and dancer who has graced the stages of The Apollo, Carnegie Hall, and Toast of the Town (later The Ed Sullivan Show), so you’d be lucky to catch her perform some impromptu jazz standards here. Asiza says of the virtual world, “Second Life tickles me. It is my kind of thing. I am having a
  3. This week’s video transports you to Nour, where you can find domed stone buildings, ornate and colorful rugs, and a mysterious sense of calm on a bed of golden sand. This desert oasis was built by Camila Runo, who explains that “Nour means Light of the Desert… Surrounded by huge dunes of desert sand in the west and the wide, crystal-blue ocean in the east, Nour seems to be secluded and difficult to reach.” Like many of us during this difficult time of social isolation, Camila found herself yearning for the experience of traveling to new places and seeing the world’s cultures. T
  4. As you may know, we are in the process of moving Second Life to the cloud! Our first ever cloud simulators, on the beta grid, have been uplifted, and we can use your assistance. Here’s your opportunity to be among the first Residents to test the performance of uplift. Log in to the beta grid (click here for instructions) and start at the Aditi Portal Park to try out Linden Realms in the cloud. Bring your friends and spend some time engaging in the virtual experience produced and provided by Linden Lab. You may even run into the often unseen technical Lindens working away. Don’t forget to
  5. Expect the unexpected at the Titmouse Smash Party -- an infamous tradition in Hollywood for almost two decades that comes to Second Life for an exclusive event, held Sept. 12 from 6 p.m.-midnight (Pacific). Anything can (and probably will) happen at this virtual world gathering where participants are invited to smash, bash and crash one of the hottest parties of the year held by independent award-winning animation production company Titmouse (known for “Star Trek: Lower Decks,” “Big Mouth,” “Metalocalypse,” and countless other shows). Attendees of the Lightbox Expo and the Sec
  6. It’s time for a field trip to a gorgeous virtual aquarium where you can take a moment to relax amidst a colorful array of marine life. Aquatic Discovery was created by Beta Omega Iota (BOI) as an act of gratitude for the community. BOI, a fraternity founded in 2010 by Mars Xorn Sr., Neroli Portofino Sr., and Caspian Dionysus Batista, was born of the desire to create a space for masculine-identifying lesbians and often hosts community appreciation events. Neroli says, “We hope that through these events people of all backgrounds, socioeconomic status, and abilities have an opportunity

  8. Happy Wednesday! We’re writing today to remind everyone that we’ll be holding our monthly Web User Group meeting on Wednesday, September 2nd 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 featuring Etérea, a wondrous and surreal slice of paradise. Sprouted from the colorful mind of Coqueta Georgia, a Second Life photographer and blogger from Chile, this region feels like a curated selection of fairytale elements sprinkled over a grassy island. Experience behind the camera played a huge part in the design: Coqueta says that “Etérea was born with the idea to make a sim for photographers so that people could take photos and rezz their poses and objects for free.” With grassy hills, glittering trees, picnic tables and benches, there is no shortage of sp
  10. Hi Residents! A lot of people had trouble connecting to Second Life yesterday (Aug 30th, 2020), and I want to explain a bit about what happened, and why we didn’t post on the Second Life Status page right away. Early in the morning (US time) yesterday one of the major Internet providers had an issue that impacted a lot of the Internet as a whole, including Second Life. Several other Internet companies have written their own really good blog posts about what happened. We got caught up in the same thing. The reason we were slow to post on the Second Life Status page is because, fr
  11. Photo by Minnie Fae The Halloween season is fast approaching...and this year Second Life is excited to announce an all-new seasonal Shop & Hop Event, held Oct. 2-Nov. 1. If you are a creator or merchant, this is your chance to spook up some sales and reach a large audience with your creepiest and coolest creations. Here are the guidelines for participation in this year’s event: The Halloween Shop and Hop will be held Friday, October 2 thru Sunday, November 1, 2020. Set-up will be September 23 - 29. Merchants are required to have at least a 20% discount on ALL items, includ
  12. Furzona is a community-based, cyberpunk themed hangout owned by Game Wylder and Todd Squall and run by a team of dedicated staff. This multilevel furry-friendly venue provides ample opportunities for recreation and entertainment. Squall, one of Furzona’s DJs and a longtime supporter, is also the writer and producer of the music featured in today’s video. Describing the essence of this region, he says, “I've never thought of Furzona as a building with walls and a ceiling... I've always viewed Furzona as a vibe, an atmosphere, a feeling perhaps. At the end of it all. What you see now
  13. Shyla the Super Gecko’s exhibition at The Glinka Gallery shows us the spirited activity within one of Second Life’s many cathartic outlets: poetry. Shyla’s work is informed by her personal experiences and passions as a person with a disability concerned about social justice issues. She writes to express herself, especially during these times of limited outdoor travel, and hopes to create material that others can relate to. The Glinka Gallery, run by real world novelist and poet Wolfgang Glinka, comprises four galleries dedicated to fine art, photography, poetry, music, a
  14. Hi Residents! We rolled out some changes to how region crossings work this week, and I want to explain a little about why and what we changed. Please note that this blog post is gonna be a bunch more technical than my normal posts, because this is a tricky technical thing. Here’s a really quick summary, however: As part of moving regions to the cloud we discovered that region crossings between the cloud and our data center were terrible. Since we now had an easy way to reproduce the issue, we dug into it, and were able to find some really old bugs, and fixed them. Hooray! And
  15. A whimsical and surreal adventure awaits any curious traveler who arrives at Wonderland. Creators Nips and Lucifer Alpha compressed a stunning amount of detail into a relatively small region, with Nips describing their stylistic goals as “vivid colors, dense, lush landscaping, and splashes of inexplicable whimsy.” This quality over quantity approach to space has fostered a disarming vibe conducive to intimacy, with many Residents staying for hours and often coming back with friends. It’s like they distilled the allure of a trendy coffeeshop and the serenity of a sculpture gar
