First preview of the RFL of SL 2016 track!

The 12th annual RFL of SL relay weekend will be taking place at the RFL regions on Saturday 16th to Sunday 17th July 2016. Relay weekend is a fun event rasing money for the fight against cancer and it’s one of the largest events of the season. Relay For Life is the signature event of the American Cancer Society and the first RFL of SL event started back in 2005.

Today marks the last day for live performances at the SL13B community celebration event in Second Life. After midnight (SLT) tonight there will be no live performances until next year at SL14B (confirmed).

The good news is that the SL13B regions will remain open for viewing until the first week of July 2016. The sims are much quieter with less lag during the final week of the birthday celebrations.

Ebbe Linden at SL13B

For anyone that missed any of the special Meet the Lindens talks at SL13B this week so far here is another chance to watch them again. I have attended all of the Meet the Linden talks so far and I have found them very interesting to watch.

It’s great to see the lab being part of the Second Life 13th birthday celebrations more than before. It’s been confirmed that there will be more Lab Chats in the near future in Second Life. The talks have been very positive and fascinating this year. I would like to say well done to the SL13B team that have made these talks happen this year.:)

Pete Linden & Xiola Linden (23rd) along with Patch Linden (3pm SLT today on 24th) talk at SL13B will be uploaded soon on the official Second Life YouTube channel.

If you have attended any of the talks this year at SL13B what did you think of them ?
