Update: I’ve added SLURLs to the list of artists below. I will be cross-posting this on the UWAinSL blog site
I was planning to ignore SL9B (the Second Life birthday celebration) this year, but we were asked if UWA wanted a site, so I figured it wouldn’t be too hard to put one together. Not like I have anything else to do, right?
As with Burning Life, Linden Lab has decided to let the users make the festivals without their sponsorship. You can argue about whether this is a good or bad thing, but in my experience the post-LL fests have been every bit as good as the former ones, though with noticeable differences. The main one being that the exhibitors feel a lot freer without the Lab overseeing things. They make allowances for the volunteers who run and assist the events that they didn’t before, even though the official LL events were also largely . . . → Read More: Artists Dominate SL9B

For those few of you who were fortunate enough to witness the demolition of the Caerleon Identity Museum last November, I’m sure you’ll remember what it was like to see disruption on a massive scale. (Read the story and watch the machinima.) The usual procedure for any such demolition is to select the objects in Edit, unlink all the prims, set them to temporary and physical, then just let go. On a large scale this can be pretty dramatic. But in this case I deliberately refrained from setting everything to temp so the experience would last longer.

Come celebrate the first ever (and perhaps only) event in the amazing Cosmos hi-tech music venue designed by award winning artist FreeWee Ling. Special lighting effects live from the control booth. This is NOT a pajama party! Think sexy cocktail dresses or cyberpunk or Trekkie kitsch. Put on your sexiest party outfit and we’ll try to keep you entertained with MrMulti “Mic” Writer’s fab covers and even fabber originals.
The disco is located near my Laboratory and the Sunlight Museum — what I like to call FreeWee’s Complex Entertainment.
The controls are on the elevated platform. They manage the colors (hue & luminance) of the stages and the sphere, and also the transparency of the sphere. There is a fog machine, a comet launcher, an Intan dance device for couple, male solo and female solo dances, tracking spotlights, and more. I can control several of the features . . . → Read More: Cosmos Club Opens Saturday
