Patch Linden and Dee Linden interview at SL12B


Patch Linden and Dee Linden

On Tuesday 23rd June, Patch Linden and Dee Linden was interviewed by Saffia Widdershins at the SL12B Auditorium on the past, present and the future of Second Life. The full interview is now available to watch again.

The hour is packed full of discussion on Second Life, Project Sansar, Linden Lab projects, mainland Second Life and much more.

At 1pm SLT today Pete Linden and Xiola Linden will be interviewed. Should be most interesting. 🙂

It’s Second Life’s official 12th birthday today


Back on June 23rd 2003 Second Life was launched officially by Linden Lab and today Second Life reaches its 12th birthday. It’s incredible to think how far Second Life has come since then and how much has changed in 12 years. Happy 12th Birthday, Second Life! 🙂

I’ve been in Second Life for almost 9 years and so much has changed since I first signed up. The last 12 years have not been forgotten because all you have to do is check out the History of Second Life wiki page to go back to the beginning of Second Life through to 2015. 

Check out my SLHistorical wiki page including stats, beta sims, historical locations and maps.
