On Thursday 17th June 2021 SL18B opened it’s gates to the public in Second Life and saw hundred’s visitors pack into the SLB regions. The opening ceremony had a high attendance like it always does for the annual Second Life birthday opening days. There was lag again throughout opening day as the regions were full mostly.
If you missed the SL18B opening ceremony then here is the full video which runs for 37 minutes. After roughly 19 minutes Strawberry Linden started exploring some of the SL18B celebrations which was apart of Lab Gab.
Patch Linden gave his opening address at SL18B Live Stage. Skip to 7 minutes & 30 seconds where it begins. It’s a really good speech where Patch briefly talked about the new user experience, the next LH theme was announced which is Fantasy and his time working with Brett Linden. The Fantasy demo region is open until 6th July 2021.
Patch Linden talked about Ebbe Altberg and how he changed Second Life for the better. He will never be forgotten. There was a minute of silence to remember.
Meet the Lindens & Meet the Moles series start from Tuesday 22nd June through until Friday 25th June 2021. “Patch Linden (June 22 at 1pm PT), Grumpity Linden (June 23 at 2pm PT), and Brett Linden (June 24 at 1pm PT). You also get the chance to meet the Moles (June 25 at 1pm PT)”.
There are over 35 regions to explore filled with live music, performances, over 200 exhibits, gifts and shopping. To see what’s happening everyday at SL18B it’s definitely worth viewing the full SL18B birthday calendar.
The SL18B category on the Second Life Destination Guide is very useful to check out for SL18B shopping, experiences and events.
I will post more SL18B in the days ahead. Stay tuned for that.
