My SL evolution of avatars over the years


My SL evolution has changed alot over the years and here are my¬†favourite SL avatars from October 2006 (bottom) to 2011 (top) of the tower pile.¬†I do love to change my avatar¬†frequently and I’m sure many know that already.¬†I love wearing cute and amazing avatars in Second Life than staying with a human form. ¬†This is a great project set up by¬†Harper Beresford¬†just recently.

Join¬†Your SL Evolution¬†group on Flickr and send snapshots of how you’ve changed over the years in SL.

My constant SL revolution is shown below and this trend will continue into the future I think…

ReactionGrid now available on the Android Marketplace


Great news this week that¬†ReactionGrid is now¬†available on the Android Marketplace as a demo version.¬†Search for “Jibe 3D MultiUser VirtualWorld”¬†and try it out if you using a Android device. ReactionGrid¬†is one of the OpenSim grids that “develops and hosts 3D virtual world platforms for metaverse events, corporate training, education and entertainment”.

App stats

  • Updated: 26th September 2011
  • Version: 1.1
  • Requires: 2.0.1 and up
  • Size: 22M
  • FREE

Today ReactionGrid hit a milestone in virtual world development.  The first true mobile virtual world platform is available on the Android Marketplace in demo form.  After we get feedback and refine the interface we will be scheduling some live concerts, brainstorming sessions and more.  While it is a demo it is the full Jibe kit minus voice (for now).

We are also launching a publishing division of RG this month which can take your standard Jibe project kit and publish an Android and soon iOS version.  We can also guide you through the process if you buy the Unity3D publishing application for Android and soon iOS.

This demo is a work in progress but running nicely enough to get some expanded feedback beyond our staff of testers.  Some icons need to be enlarged for smaller screens along with numerous other tweaks we can already see.  Please comment here or email us at create@reactiongrid.com with your feedback and ideas.

BURN2 (Burning Life) starts this Saturday in Second Life


4 days and counting left until the grand opening of BURN2 (Burning Life) starts in Second Life.¬†Events kick off at 12pm SLT on 1st October 2011 which I’m looking forward to. The sims will remain open until midnight (SLT) on 9th October 2011..so don’t forget to visit all the BURN2 builds this year.

Burn2 is community supported

BURN2 is an extension of the Burning Man festival and community into the world of Second Life. It is an officially sanctioned Burning Man regional event, and the only virtual world event out of more than 100 real world Regional groups, and the only Regional to burn the Man!

Burning Man regions snapshot taken at 1:48pm SLT today.

Check out my new BURN2 outfit look for 2011. I’m looking forward to greeting at the gates of BURN2 and making sure everyone is welcome. If you see me around feel free to give me a shout. ūüôā

  • Are you excited ?¬†
  • Have you been before ?

I’m really excited about BURN2 and you will¬†probably¬†have noticed my blog¬†appearance¬†has changed because of BURN2. I hope you like the new background and header images. I will be blogging about BURN2 along the way and you can expect many great snapshots from the event on my Flickr stream. Wooot – stay tuned!

Help People Island officially closes access


After 5pm SLT today the Help People Island owners stopped teleports to the region. There was a special tearful farewell party where many celebrated HPI achievements etc. I would say there was more than 30 avatars in the sim during the party until the end when everyone crashed. Sad day!

Hello all HPI Fans,

Sadly HPI closes today after many years of service in Second Life. With that in mind, we want all of you to have a place to reach out for help and to keep in touch, so we have created a new Group. Its called Helping Haven Fans, you can find this in search and join there or you can contact one of us to be added.

We would like to thank you for your support and hope to see you again and that you have a wonderful Second Life.

Aullere Ocello and Lily Swindlehurst.

This is a sad day for the Second Life community after having a presence in Second Life for six years. This is a big loss for the new resident experience and its a shame.
