Second Life officially turns 10 years old

It’s now 12am SLT on Sunday morning and Second Life has now reached a very special big milestone because Second Life is now officially ten years old. Second Life first opened to the public on 23rd June 2003 when it was just a small growing virtual world. 10 years later Second Life is huge with 27, 182 regions and it’s great that Second life is still popular with thousands of residents of the community.

Happy 10th Birthday Second Life and big thanks to Linden Lab for all the hard work they have done over the years.  Special thanks to all the CEOs of Linden Lab so far Philip Linden, M Linden and Rodvik Linden for making it possible.

Lets eat some SL10B cake to celebrate 10 amazing years of Second Life!!!


Lets party!!
