Celebrating 15 Years of Second Life & AMA

Ask Me Anything

On June 23rd, 2018 Second Life will turn 15 and on May 9th, which is my rezday, I will be 11 in Second Life years. I missed the first 4 years of Second Life but I feel like I’ve been here forever. It has become such an important part of my life and has left an incredible impact.

To celebrate my upcoming 11th rezday in 2 weeks, and also Second Life’s 15 years, I’m doing a couple of things:

  • Ask Me Anything – On my 11th rezday, May 9th, 2018, I plan to do an AMA (Ask Me Anything). You guys have the opportunity to ask me any question you like and I will try to answer it in my rezday post. The questions I will answer will be ones that you ask me in the comments of today’s post, or if you like you can email me your question. You have until May 9th to ask me the questions. If you guys don’t have any questions for me, then I’ll plan to do a live tour of a sim in Second Life that day.
  • Advertising Sale – I’m also running my annual rezday advertising sale. All of my advertising rates are 50% off until May 10th, 2018. You can find my rates and more information on how to pick up an ad campaign on my Advertising Page.

A few days ago, Linden Lab sent me this Infographic and it is fascinating to me that even after 15 years, Second Life is still thriving and people are still logging in. I can’t think of any other online community that has lasted this long and has had such an impact on the residents’ lives. I know so many people that have met their significant others in this virtual world, that make a living here, that login for emotional and financial support, and that cherish this place like it was a second home.

So what’s in store for their 15th year celebrations? Here are some links:

I’ve also recently blogged about the Acquisition of Flickr by SmugMug and in that post I offered some alternatives for flickr, one of which was Instagram. I’m going to try and post images to Instagram that show the realism of both virtual worlds, Second Life and Sansar. I will also share those Instagram images in my blog posts from time to time. Here is one that I posted today:
