There is now exactly one week to go until the Second Life 16th birthday celebrations (SL16B) opens to the public in Second Life. It looks like Linden Lab and the Moles are running the birthday event this year from what I have been hearing. Exhibitors are still working on getting everything ready on time and the greeter training sessions are almost over.
Looking at the map of the SL16B regions with a week left to go they all look pretty nice. The Exhibitors parcels are all on the west side this year with various builds going east. There is a Linden homes / houseboats region which could have new themes on them. The love heart looks very interesting indeed.
I’m surprised there has not been a website set up for SL16B yet like in previous years. It would be great to have a place where everyone can find daily events, parcel/stage locations, maps, links and other useful information. I think there will be several Meet the Lindens events during the SL16B celebration to discuss new Linden home themes. The dates and times are yet to be announced. I think there will be big talk of Linden Homes and the Premium price changes during SL16B.
There is talk of SL16B bloggers day which could take place early next week (17th-19th). Again no confirmation of this yet. It’s been pretty quiet lately on the news front.
Upcoming SL16B Schedule
- SL16B Opening Date: 20th June – 8th July
- Music Faire: 21st June – 22nd June
- Second Life Official Birthday: 23rd June
- Live Events: 23rd June – 29th June
I’m sure there will be announcements in the days ahead on Second Life 16th birthday celebrations. Hopefully SL16B will be another great birthday celebration.
