Isle of View - Valentines Sim Event from Linden Labs

February 15th, 2008 | Category: Lindens, Meet and Greet, Mozy Pera, Valentines Day

Isle of View - Valentines Sim Event from Linden Labs by Mozy Pera

Okay so today is Valentine’s Day 2008 and I spent my day in a Virtual Valentine’s Hugs & Kisses sim created by Linden Labs, a great way to kick off my first report for thegridlive and I couldn’t have had a better time!

Valentine’s Day Sim

I arrived to a huge heart shaped sim colored red with heart prims everywhere and many Lindens were there giving out lots of Linden hugs and kisses and free gifts. This place was crazy, there were so many people attending that I felt like I was attending the arrival of a president or celebrity. Everyone eagerly awaited their turn to get a hug from a Linden, and there were even hugs and kisses booths set up at the outer perimeters of the sim. People were so cheerful and shouts were belted out from every angle. Many SL Mentors were also on hand to spread the love for anyone seeking that special V-Day cheer.

While it was exciting and great fun to be there, I did encounter many times of sheer panic, all of a sudden the server would not or could not process my snapshots and walking was almost impossible. The sim was packed!

PodCampUK This Weekend

September 01st, 2007 | Category: Meet and Greet, RL Meets SL

What: PodCampUK in Second Life

When: September 1st and 2nd

Where: Booville

Description: What is PodCamp UK?
PodCampUK is a free two-day event bringing all the excitement and ideas and energy of a PodCamp to the UK for the first time. This unique event is taking place on the 1st and 2nd of September at the New Technology Institute in Birmingham, and promises to be a brilliant mix of ideas, technology, live music, free food, great people and much more…

PodCamps are meetups for anyone interested in New Media. The first PodCamp was held in Boston, Massachusetts, in 2006, and they are now spreading across the globe, enabling culture, commerce and connections.

The “Pod” in PodCamp comes from podcasting; but you can expect to find anyone at PodCamp, podcasters, video makers, software developers, entrepreneurs, journalists, musicians, social networkers, marketers, producers, publishers, PR firms, educators, actors, writers, boys, broadcasters, girls and Web 2.0 gurus, all using the internet to communicate with shared media.

Some are beginners, some are experts, but all are enthused by what they are doing, redefining the old media landscape and defining a brand new culture.
