Today is the last full day of the BURN2 Fire Moon event happening now in Second Life. The live music entertainment continues until midnight tonight. Congratulations to all the event organisers, builders, volunteers, DJs and everyone else who has made this event successful.

Personally I have been impressed by the amazing builds this year for the fire moon event and I think the theme has worked very well. The live music has been really good over the last few days with plenty of attendees.

See some of my day 3 snapshots below

First preview of the Main Stage

The pairing of the moon on fire and the fire rooster, the new year, a new beginning…such an exciting time of year! No one shall be a mere bystander; everyone participates in some way, by exploring, driving an art car, joining the Lamplighters as they walk the playa, witnessing the burning of the Fire Rooster, grooving to the tunes emanating from the stage, marveling and experiencing the creative builds scattered throughout the playa. You become the event, with us!

BAY CITY’S 7th “MOLE DAY” ANNOUNCED

Members of Linden Department of Public Works to be celebrated

BAY CITY, SL (22nd January, 2017) – Bay City will once again come together to celebrate the hardy Moles of the Linden Department of Public Works on the 4th of February. The event will be held in the Bay City Fairgrounds in North Channel. As in past years, the invitation is open to all Second Life® members to join in the fun.

This will be the 7th such event, set aside to show appreciation for The Moles and their many contributions to Bay City and the rest of the Second Life™ Grid.

Normally held on the same day as Groundhog Day, this year’s event will be observed two days later, taking advantage of the weekend. The event will feature a performance by DJ GoSpeed of KONA Stream at 11:00 a.m., followed by a live performance by Oblee (Obleoinkment Wrigglesworth) beginning at noon.

“Moles” are members of The Linden Department of Public Works (LDPW). The LDPW is a program focused on improvements related to the experience of living on, or visiting the Linden Mainland. The LDPW is a team of Resident builders, scriptwriters, and others to create new content on Linden Lab’s behalf and to the benefit of all. These Residents all have Second Life accounts with the last name “Mole.”

Moles build the infrastructure of Second Life: the public roads and railways, items in our coastal waterways and protected lands, and even larger scale projects like the Linden Homes regions, premium content and experiences, and much more.

Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab® and home to the Bay City Alliance. The Bay City Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote the Bay City regions of Second Life and provide a venue for Bay City Residents and other interested parties to socialize and network. It is now the largest group for Residents of Bay City.

For more information, or to participate in the event, please contact Marianne McCann.

New OpenSim Viewer Survey Opens


On 22nd January Maria Korolov who is the editor and publisher of Hypergrid Business posted up a new OpenSim Viewer Survey. The aim of the survey is to find out what OpenSim viewers the OpenSim community use the most, what favourite features they like and what they’d want to see fixed in the future.

Apparently one random respondent who completes the survey will get a free virtual reality headset for their mobile phone which sounds awesome. Woooot! 🙂
