MOLE DAY COMING 2nd FEBRUARY 2015

Annual Event Honors Members of Linden Department of Public Works

BAY CITY, SL (26th January, 2015) – It’s nearly that time of year again when we look for furry little shadows. You do have your shadows enabled, no? It’s not about groundhogs — it’s about the Moles of the Linden Department of Public Works!

Initially honored in 2010 by Residents of Bay City, Mole Day is set aside to show appreciation for The Moles and their many contributions to Bay City and the rest of the Second Life™ Grid.

This year’s annual Mole Day will again take place at the Bay City Fairgrounds February 2nd commencing at 5:00 p.m. SLT. The event will feature DJ GoSpeed Racer of KONA stream followed by Marky Helstein performing live at 6:00 p.m. SLT.

“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 organizes teams of Resident builders, artists, and scripters (the Moles!) to create new content on Linden Lab’s behalf and to the benefit of all. These Residents have the last name “Mole.”

Moles essentially build all of the grid’s infrastructure: 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.

Event Details

What is “Espresso Yourself?” It’s a chance to take your spot on the stage and share. Tell a joke, share your poetry, read a chapter from your favorite book, sing a song. Just share! Voice or Text. Talent not required, but passion is mandatory. Also, no mimes.

The key here is to participate.
How can you participate?
Just choose an item off our menu!

1. ESPRESSO
Our main stock in trade: Read a poem. Poetry is always encouraged at the pen. Share one of your own, or one by someone else. Read it on voice or type it out. You can even pre-record some sound files if you want to get really inventive.

2. CAPPUCCINO
Share a favorite story. Could be something you’ve experienced that you want to share. Could be a story out of a book that makes you think or that you just enjoy. Maybe it’s a story of your own, too, that you wish to share. All is encouraged.

3. CAFFÉ AU LAIT
Share a picture of something you’ve built recently – or something you’ve built in the past – tell us about it, what were the challenges? What was fun? Share the experience.

4. CAFFÉ AMERICANO
Free Advice. Tell Linden Lab how to fix Second Life, or tell us how to use it! This is soapbox time! Rant, rave, share.

5, CAFFÉ MOCHA
I read the news today: tell us something you read in the newspaper/saw on the telly/spotted online that caught your eye. Tell us what’s going on!

5. CAFFÉ MACCHIATO
Random beauty! Show us a photo of something that caught your eye. Share something of beauty and tell us about it. Maybe it’s a pretty thing from your first life, or maybe it’s a gorgeous place in here.

6. CAFFÉ CORRETTO
Surprise us: hand puppets,. juggling, wacky gags, etc.! Do something different, weird, and wild. Delight the audience by going outside the box.

Just want to hang out? We’ll let you can do that too: but you can still talk, still interact, and still be a part of the show. Everyone is a participant, even if you might not realize it.

Also, why not toss a few bones in the ol tip jar, too, or buy a fresh cuppa? It helps keep the lights on.

Starts at 6pm SLT today! Don’t miss it!
