Check out the next big BURN2 event happening in Second Life in early August 2018.
BURN2 2018 – Burnstock will be open between 3rd to 5th August 2018. There will be games, live music, races and more interesting events happening. This is the second time the event has been hosted.
Here is more information about BURN2 Burnstock Weekend 2018…
The sounds of drums, music, sultry voices, even primal screams…
Here in the dog days of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s nice to have something to look forward to. It’s the season of open-air concerts, pool or beach parties, all kinds of reasons to have a party. Even the Southern Hemisphere can look forward to events to warm things up a bit.
Well, BURN2 is no exception. Coming up the first weekend in August, we have Burnstock, the second time we’ve had this happening. Last year was such fun, we’re doing it again!
Mark your calendars and join us – there will be more than just music going on – races, games, THUNDERDOME… be there! Yes, we have, ahhh, facilities too! BYOTP
Who are we?
BURN2 is an extension of the Burning Man festival and community into the world of Second Life. It is an officially sanctioned Burning Man Regional, the only virtual world Regional out of more than 100 Regional groups worldwide, and the only Regional to burn the Man!
This unique virtual Regional spreads the culture and Ten Principles of Burning Man year-round in Second Life, culminating in an annual major festival of community, art and fire in the fall — a virtual echo of Burning Man itself.

Please spread the word about BURN2 2018 – Burnstock. Don’t forget the big 2018 BURN2 festival in Second Life starts 19th to 28th October 2018.
Just a quick reminder that next weekend marks the start of the 2018 Relay Weekend in Second Life which will take place on Saturday 15th from 10am SLT & Sunday 16th July 2018. It’s going to be another great successful event and I’m sure new records will be set.
All these Relay For Life of Second Life events bring communities together to remember loved ones and honor survivors to raise money to help the American Cancer Society.

2018 RFL Schedule
Opening Ceremony: 10am SLT (Jul 14)
Time to get started. We kick off the event by honoring everyone who’s been affected by cancer and everyone who has contributed to the success of this year’s Relay season.
Survivor/Caregiver Walk: 11am SLT (Jul 14)
“Survivors and Caregivers are the heart and soul of Relay For Life events. We honor their strength and courage with every step they take. It doesn’t matter if you were diagnosed 10 days ago or 10 years ago, you can walk while everyone gathers together to cheer you on”.
Luminaria Ceremony: 9pm SLT (Jul 14)
“During this ceremony we represent everyone touched by cancer with a Luminaria. Each light represents a life—a life taken by cancer, a survivor of cancer, or a support for a person still fighting the disease. It’s a powerful demonstration that gives people the opportunity to grieve but also offers comfort and hope”.
Closing Ceremony: 9am SLT (Jul 15)
“Our closing ceremony is the time to commit to take action and help lead the fight for a world free from cancer. It’s a time to celebrate what we’ve accomplished together and a time to unify for the work that needs to be done moving forward”.

On June 23rd 2003 Second Life was launched officially by Linden Lab and today Second Life turns 15 years old. Second Life is still one of the best virtual worlds out there today and still going strong.
The party celebrations are still happening over at the SL15B regions with live music around the clock and great exhibitions to see. It’s one of the biggest events on the grid happening now 🙂
Happy Birthday Second Life and here’s to another 15+ years 🙂
Come and join the SL15B celebrations today 🙂
On Tuesday 19th June a brand new video was uploaded on the official Second Life YouTube channel featuring Ebbe Altberg (Ebbe Linden) who is the CEO of Linden Lab celebrating 15 years of Second Life. The video runs for 2 minutes and 34 seconds.
Second Life the most successful virtual world ever
Ebbe is speaking in the video from Amsterdam which is great. Ebbe mentioned that 68 million US dollars was paid to creators in 2017. 5 million virtual goods listed in the marketplace. Linden Lab are moving massive amounts of infrastructure into the cloud.
At the end of the video there is a special surprise appearance from the founder of Second Life Philip Rosedale. Second Life 15 years later is still going strong and I agree Second Life is definitely the most successful virtual world out there today.
Happy 15th Birthday, Second Life 🙂
Here’s to another 15 years of awesomeness
