Guess what!! No, really go on guess.Its Second Life’s 17th birthday.
The festivities start tomorrow 19 June 2020 at 9am SLT.
Way way back in the olden days, 2003 to be exact, the virtual platform we know today Second Life, hit the internet and opened its virtual doors to the world. June 23 2003 to be precise.
This was the brainchild of Philip Rosedale after Linden Lab was set up in 1999.
Did you know, originally Linden Lab was actually a hardware company looking into Haptic technology?
In 2002 the very first resident entered our wonderful world, that resident was Stellar Sunshine.
Moving forward to 2020 , under the care and protection of Ebbe Altberg, we are now celebrating 17 years of the wonderful platform Second Life. The place where you can make all sorts of dreams come true. The celebrations are taking on a theme this year of Vacations and Road trips. Basically because no matter where you are you can literally explore the world from your living room.
You have many dates to pop in your calendar so write them down now.
