    Ask the CEO

    This is one of the questions covered up at the top of the thread: Q. Will there be something like Second Life’s Mainland in Project Sansar? Will there be a concept of contiguous land where separate land plots can be joined together to form vast spaces similar to mainland on Second Life? This will be important for vehicle-based environments. A. We’d like to give creators the ability to both create very large experiences and interconnect their creations with others’, and it’s likely that large public ‘hubs’ around themes, interests, and communities will arise. Especially early on, there will be some public shared spaces created by Linden Lab where creators can gather, but we’re currently not planning to create something directly parallel to SL’s Mainland.
  2. To be clear: no such notice was sent to the Press Corps group (in fact, no notices of any kind have been sent to the group recently). And, as others have already pointed out, the Firestorm Viewer remains in our directory of third party viewers: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Third_Party_Viewer_Directory

    Second Life Story in HBO Documentary this Valentine’s Day

    Sophitia, Rinaldo, Han - Having seen the film myself, I think you'll be pleased at how Second Life and its users are portrayed. Paisley Beebe, Rik Riel, and Hamlet Au have also seen the film - I'd recommend reading thoughts on it as well, which you can do by following the links in the post above. I encourage you to watch Paisley Beebe's interview with the director on Sunday and hope you have a chance to see the movie itself as well. For those who have shared your stories about meeting online in comments here, or on the film's Facebook page, thank you!
  4. As you may have already heard, HBO will be showing a documentary called, When Strangers Click: Five Stories from the Internet on February 14 (Valentine’s Day). The film is the work of Robert Kenner (the Oscar®-nominated director of the documentary Food, Inc.), and it presents several stories of people finding love online. One of the segments of the film is a great Second Life love story: a talented musician happened to meet a woman at an inworld performance, and as a result, both of their lives have changed significantly. Watching the film, it’s clear Robert Kenner ‘gets’ Second Life, and in addition to telling his subjects’ stories with compassion, he realistically presents the virtual world and its possibilities. If you’re an HBO subscriber, I highly recommend checking this one out. For details and the trailer, see this page on the HBO Documentary Films website. If you’re not a subscriber, keep an eye on the film’s Facebook page for the DVD release date. Watch Paisley Beebe Interview the Director On February 6, Tonight Live with Paisley Beebe will have both Robert Kenner and Bara Jonson, the musician featured in the film, on the program. Paisley will interview Robert, and Bara will perform live. For details, check out Paisley’s announcement here. Share Your Own Story and Support the Film Over the years, many of you have shared your own stories about making meaningful connections with others in Second Life – and now, the filmmakers would love to hear them as well. If you have a story about meeting someone in Second Life that deeply affected you (it doesn’t need to be a romantic connection), add it to the film’s Facebook page – and while you’re there, click ‘Like’ to show your support!
