This week the lab added a number of water regions north and south of the new Bellisseria continent (new Linden Homes) in Second Life. You can now go straight from Heterocera to the Sansara continent (top) through the new Bellisseria continent (middle) then down to the Jeogeot continent (bottom) or the other way around. This means you can now fly, walk, boat or even walk between all four continents now.
North Side: Grand Banks, Lobster Pot, Marianas Trench, Magellan Deep and Albatross Shoals
Last night It was heartbreaking to see live coverage of the Notre Dame in real life on fire. The spire collapsed and the roof caved into the famous 850-year-old building. It took around 15 hours for the firefighters to fully extinguish the fire. The good news is that the main stone structure and the two towers survived. The cause of the fire is not yet clear but what is clear is that the cathedral will be fully rebuilt in the near future.
In Second Life last the virtual Paris 1900 region filled up pretty quickly with a large crowd gathering at the virtual Notre Dame. The region was full including the nearby regions.
