Second Life birthday time capsules so far

The first original Second Life birthday time capsule was created at the end of Second Life beta phrase on 23rd June 2003. You can still find the original time capsule today under the Governor Linden’s mansion with other cool historical objects. If you right hand click the capsule then click on edit you can see a number of items inside.

Don’t Open Till June 2004

From: Second Opinion, Volume 1, Number 8
Out of sight, out of mind? Not for the residents who contributed more than 225 objects, outfits and snapshots to the Second Life Beta Time Capsule. Created as a way to memorialize the Beta period, the SL Time Capsule was buried deep underground, where it will hibernate for a year before being unearthed in June of 2004. The submersion ceremony took place at the Governor’s Mansion on June 22nd, where many residents gathered to take one last look at the steel capsule as Hunter Linden sealed it tight. What’s in the time capsule? Well, there’s no truth to the rumor that Peter Linden entombed two misbehaving residents, but the true contents must remain a secret. However, as a sneak peek, we can reveal the goodies include a resident snapshot from the first hour of Beta, some of the best handcrafted furniture Second Life has to offer, an ominous note card warning folks not to open it, and one object simply labeled “meat,” which is likely to be quite stinky a year from now. Join us in June 2004 for the unearthing of the Time Capsule and a chronicling of its contents.

  1. Wow Daniel. I didn’t realize they made a time capsule every year at the SLB’s. I knew there was the first time capsule in the basement of the governor’s mansion, but where are all the others stored? Thank you for showing pictures of each. Are there dates already set for when each one will be opened in the future, and where?
