The Drax Files Radio Hour Show 95: Lab Chat!

On 20th November show 95 was aired of The Drax Files Radio Hour and you can listen to the show here. This week it’s all about the recent Lab Chat Q&A event featuring Ebbe Linden talking about Second Life and Project Sansar. It’s most interesting to hear what’s going on and I have to say great work to the team that made this happen. Great engaging conversation for sure! :)

There have been many bloggers that have already blogged about the first Lab Chat event and I recommend that you should check it them out.

The full video of the event and transcript will be published soon.

First Lab Chat launches in Second Life

Over 180 people attended the first ever Lab Chat Q&A session on Thursday 19th November in the LEA Theatre in Second Life with Saffia Widdershins and Jo Yardley featuring Ebbe Linden.

Sadly I missed it due to RL but from what I can gather the event went rather smoothly and everyone enjoyed it. I heard that Torley Linden, Pete Linden, Xiola Linden and Danger Linden attended the session.

There will be a transcript published soon along with the full video replay featuring Ebbe Linden talking about Second Life, the marketplace and Project Sansar. I believe there will be a second Lab Chat Q&A session soon.

If you attended the first Lab Chat Q&A what did you think of it all ?

The first episode of Lab Chat will start at 10.30am SLT/PDT at the LEA Theatre on Thursday 19th November 2015. The show will be recorded to watch later just in case you miss it.

Linden Lab announces First Lab Chat

On 10th November Linden Lab announced interesting details about a new Q&A show in Second Life called Lab Chat. On Thursday 19th November starting at 10.30am SLT the first Lab Chat will take place at the Linden Endowment for the Arts Theatre in Second Life featuring Ebbe Linden. This is a great opportunity to ask Lindens your questions on Second Life, Project Sansar and more!

There is a special forum thread set up to add your questions. Get your questions into the thread no later than Friday 13th November 2015.

The event will be recorded and will be archived after the show ends. The Lab Chat production team will pick selected questions from the forum thread to ask Ebbe Linden. Hopefully there will be time for audience questions near the end of the event.

Meet the Lindens series and VWBPE Linden keynote talks have worked really well this year and I enjoyed watching them. I hope the new Lab Chat will work out well and hopefully there will be more Lab Chats in the months ahead.

We will have to wait and see.

VWBPE 2016 details announced

Great news to hear that VWBPE 2016 has been confirmed for next year. The 9th annual conference will be happening from 9th-12th March 2016 in Second Life. The 2016 theme is Horizons and again the conference will be free to attend.

“The VWBPE Conference is a completely virtual conference that is conducted using simulated environments. Participants experience the conference through a virtual reality type setting including conference rooms, theatres, exposition halls, meeting spaces, and other types of venues similar to a brick and mortar type conference”.

I really enjoyed VWBPE 2015 and my favourite moment was when Ebbe Linden did his live opening keynotes speech on education, Second Life and the next generation platform. There was a huge attendance this year and alot of useful information came out of the conference I thought.

I hope that Ebbe Linden and more Lindens will be able to take part in either one or more keynote talks during VWBPE 2016. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens.
