Happy SL17B starts tomorrow!!

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.

Philip Rosedale and his imagination

Philip Rosedale and his imagination

I woke up, looked out the window, went back to sleep!!!

Ten minutes later realised it wasn’t the weekend. Leapt out of bed in slow motion like a spritely ninja.

Ok so I exaggerate somewhat. Make that a awkward bumbling relative of the ninja.

I have a fantastical imagination which frankly if I didn’t have I’d find life rather meh at times.

To me imagination is what drives us in life to look for different and new things. Without imagination, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Minus the bad stuff in the world. All the good stuff came about because someone dared to think outside their mundane daily box thoughts and create something that people couldn’t see.

If Philip Rosedale hadn’t the imagination at the time he did, the platform as we know it of Second Life would not be where it is today. Can I just add isn’t he a hot dude!!!! I mean seriously handsome. Just saying.

That imagination and belief he had went on to create this amazing virtual platform we have now.

But it doesn’t stop there, it goes on to evolve and become even more amazing on a daily basis as Ebbe Altberg the CEO carries on the work to take our virtual worlds further.

Many people forget how amazing it is and like anything become so used to it being “normal” that they forget that it was literally a 16 year old teenager in time away, when it didn’t exist.

Imagination, what a damned wonderful thing it is to have. Never stop dreaming and never let anyone tell you that you can’t do it.
