Designing Worlds at the Relay for Life Weekend – now on the web!

Original post @ Prim Perfect.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we look back at the stunning builds that we saw at the Relay for Life of Second Life weekend at the end of July – is now on the web.

Sadly, we only had time to visit a few of the great builds, and talk to a small number of the talented creators behind them – we just wish we could have shown everything. Thankfully, our wonderful photographer Wildstar Beaumont was on hand to ensure that we have many more on our slide show!

Join us today, Monday 15th September at 2pm SLT at the Designing Worlds studio in Garden of Dreams as we visit the wonderful new home that Froukje Hoorenbeek has created for Dutchie.

It’s a magnificent build that has been two years in the making. Froukje has released various pieces and sets over the last two years that were created for the house – and many have found their way into homes across the grid. But now, for the first time, all that creativity is drawn together in one magnificent home – and Designing Worlds was given the opportunity to explore it.

And as we explore it, we talk to Froukje about how she designs and creates, and the role that her life in the Netherlands plays in her creations.

You’ll be able to see this magnificent house for yourselves at the Home and Garden Expo.

This is a fascinating show that all lovers of fine design in Second Life will adore – make sure that you don’t miss it!

Yes, Designing Worlds is back for a whole new season – and we’re inviting you to to join us today, Monday 8th September at 2pm SLT at the Designing Worlds studio in Garden of Dreams as we look back at the stunning builds that we saw at the Relay for Life of Second Life weekend at the end of July.

Sadly, we only had time to visit a few of the great builds, and talk to a small number of the talented creators behind them – we just wish we could have shown everything. Thankfully, our wonderful photographer Wildstar Beaumont was on hand to ensure that we have many more on our slide show!

Wildstar and Saffia were both thrilled to be awarded two of the first ever Community Champion Awards at the Wrap Up for this year’s Relay for Life of Second Life. The other recipients of this award were Stingray Raymaker and Daniel Voyager. Saffia says: “That’s very awesome company for me to be keeping! I was so privileged to receive this award – working with Relay for Life of Second Life is not just a pleasure, it’s a privilege.”

Saffia also won another award – Smell the Roses – The Clown Awards – for her Twerking for a Cause. This was a moment at the telethon captured by Petlove Petshop. She was wearing my dinkie avatar (a cute little cat) for one of the hours and someone mentioned the fact that Saffia could twerk as a dinkie. So it was agreed that if the telethon team raised 10,000 Lindens (the Second Life virtual currency – it would be about US440) by the top of the hour, the dinkie would twerk. By the top of the hour, people watching the telethon had donated a total of 22,000 lindens (around US$ 900) and … the dinkie twerked.

And in other video news, Elrik and Saffia were challenged to the Ice Bucket challenge by Nikki Mathieson. You can see the results below!

Saffia and Elrik decided to donate their challenge to the charity Water Aid. Saffia says – “Here in the UK, it’s become customary to choose which charity to donate your Ice Bucket challenge to. While we are both supportive of the work done by ALS, we decided that we would like to raise awareness of a charity connected with clean water – something we wish as a blessing for people at the end of every Designing Worlds show. We’re therefore making our donation to Water Aid – and you can read here about the impact that Ice Bucket Challenges are having on the work of this vitally important nonprofit. And we’re proud to say no real water was wasted in our taking the challenge!*”

This is a fun and beautiful start to our new season – make sure that you don’t miss it!

*That’s because we did it on Saffia’s dock and all the water went straight back into the lake.

Designing Worlds visits the Japanese regions to learn how they support new users

Join us today, Monday 4th August at 2pm SLT at the Designing Worlds studio in Garden of Dreams as we re-visit the question of the new user experience and Second Life retention – but from a wholly new angle – because we are heading for Japanese regions!

After our last show on this topic (and the Prim Perfect build at the SL11B Community Celebration), it was suggested to us that we should take a look at what was happening in the Japanese regions to welcome and support new users. So, with the aid of a fantastic guide, Kengo, we visited various groups and individuals who have created a wide range of projects and groups to support new Japanese residents. And you can see the results on tonight’s show.

We visit a newcomer support group – SL Utopia and the Beginners’ Center located close by, the Yumix estate, which offers special support for newcomers, Melsapo – another newcomer center and group, and the Hotel Riverside, which offers special accommodation for free to newcomers. And we also take a look at something that draws together Japanese people in Second Life – television created for Japanese residents, which offers a very full range of programming (they even have a very popular show that explores Second Life regions – rather like Designing Worlds!).

Many thanks to those who have helped with the creation of this show – firstly Kengo, who arranged all the meetings with Japanese residents, and not only translated our questions into Japanese, but provided translations of all the responses. We would also like to thank the people who participated: Sayully Noel, Bucchus McDonnell, Tomoyo Newall, Halfapple Kidd, Yumix Writer, Eflora Loup, Kero Nishi, Okota Wingtips, Ayumi Hammerer and Clione Clary. And we would also like to extend our thanks to the many others who came to the different locations to offer support.

Designing Worlds discusses how to maintain Second Life as Linden Lab works on a new platform: Part 1 – now on the web!

Original post @ Prim Perfect.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we have Part 1 of a discussion of Second Life’s continued viability and the ways in which Linden Lab might attract existing communities to their new platform – is now on the web.

We have a great panel of guests in this first part of the discussion – including Jessica Lyon, Project Manager of Firestorm, Jo Yardley, owner of 1920s Berlin, Maxwell Graf, owner of Rustica. JJ Drinkwater, Virtual and real life Librarian and Pathfinder Lester, Community Engagement specialist (and the ex-Pathfinder Linden).

The Discussion, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

We don’t talk about the technical possibilities of the new platform; instead we’ll be focus on what needs to be done to keep Second Life vibrant and alive … and, at the same time, what might persuade the residents of Second Life to make a commitment to a new environment – and some of the answers may be surprising!

Make sure you catch Part 2 of this show at 2pm today, Monday 21st July!
