I intend to use this video for a Second Life Facebook group’s teaser video, but might as well post it here so more people would be able to watch it. As usual, this Second Life video is targeted towards those who aren’t a Second Life user yet. So show this to your non-SL user friend and see what they think!
If you enjoyed the teaser video share it with your non-SL friends to get them interested in joining Second Life today.
The Blarney Stone (Irish Bar in Second Life) and Toby’s Juke Joint (one of the oldest clubs in SL) were featured in the new video. The video runs for 1 minute and it’s worth watching if you want to grab a drink with friends.
I missed the live session yesterday due to it being so late for the UK but the good news is that the full recorded video is now available for those that missed Ebbe Linden live speech.
Here are the bits I found most interesting from watching the recording today. I did notice there was fewer audience members in the crowd this year compared with previous VWBPE conferences for Ebbe. I would imagine this is due to the bad timing of the session or perhaps it’s because interest has dropped for some reason.
Second Life performance is continuing improving, quality and stability is improving
Linden Lab are working on new avatars, new web on prim
