TSL Poems Project


Eye4You Alliance in Teen Second Life is now running a project for teens to write poems and get them published in the Eye4You Alliance Poem Book which will be available in shops worldwide. Each teen can write up to two poems.

The theme is about ‘My Second Life’. Please remember it must be your own work.

Sadly once wrote we will need your parent or legal guardian to sign a consent form saying we can publish your work in the book. For those who need help with writing a poem please keep an eye out for the poem workshops. If you have any questions please IM Storm Basiat or email storm@eye4youalliance.info

Simple Steps to having a awsome poem to share!

  • Write a poem or two
  • Send them to storm@eye4youalliance.info
  • We will then send you the parental confirmation form for your parent or legal guardian to fill out and send back via email.
  • Once we have gathered the poems we will begin publishing them and then send you information on how to purchase the book.
  • Good Luck!

    There's a new grid on the block


    Adam Zaius announces the opening of Open Life, an alternative Second Life grid developed with Finnish developer RealXtend. Has developed a custom viewer with additional features (like real 3D meshes instead of prims, python scripting, textures-via-HTTP, multiple attachment points per body part, and more) that are unsupported in Second Life currently from what I’ve heard from the news.

    Press Junket Review


    As you might know or not know i’m taking part in D.I.D.I Venture program, my venture is called “Beat Bullying” we are going to try and benefit our local and virtual communities in TSL about issues related to “cyber bullying”. It all started in 2007 where there were alot of exciting workshops for us to go in TSL to come up with ideas about our ventures then we were asked to talk about our chosen venture infront of a selection panel of D.I.D.I and GK staff a couple weeks later my group was approved and it got through so we could do it.

    D.I.D.I then set up a Press Junket Party to celebrate our ventures which will be starting very soon. Press Junket started with a introduction about D.I.DI then followed by each groups ventures followed by a couple of speeches about upcoming projects :D. After that there was a big party on a new GK Sim wooooot, so everyone teleported over to start partying it was really cool and fun.

    Global Kids have posted reviews, interviews, videos and lots more on their website please visit the below link for more info 🙂

    Review of Literary Festival 2008


    My review of the Literary Festival that took place on Eye4you Alliance on Saturday 2nd February 2008 between 10am SLT to 1pm SLT. I throught the Festival was well planned out and was very successful by the end of the day, however I throught that alot more people would show up but there was around 30ish and more residents who came during the Festival. What I really liked the Festival which was best of all was the Guest Speakers who did their talks really good and many residents joined in with the fun and FAQ about books etc. “I won a Free Book” during the event for entering a prize draw wooot! hopefully it will come through the post soon 😛
