Our great panel of guests is present again – including Jessica Lyon, Project Manager of Firestorm, Jo Yardley, owner of 1920s Berlin, Maxwell Graf, owner of Rustica. JJ Drinkwater, Virtual and real life Librarian and Pathfinder Lester, Community Engagement specialist (and the ex-Pathfinder Linden).

We don’t talk about the technical possibilities of the new platform; instead we’ll be focus on what needs to be done to keep Second Life vibrant and alive … and, at the same time, what might persuade the residents of Second Life to make a commitment to a new environment – and some of the answers may be surprising!

Join us at 2pm for an important and fascinating show – make sure that you don’t miss it!

Jessica will be talking with Saffia Widdershins about the recent announcement by Ebbe Linden that Linden Lab are working on a new platoform, designed as a successor (but not a replacement) for Second Life. Jessica will be talking about the meeting where thios was first raised, about some of the misconceptions that have arisen, and about her vision for the future of Second Life.

She may also be sharing a few thoughts on ways in which the Lindens could avoid some of the problems they have faced in Second Life!

Secondly, at 2pmSLT, Beq Janus, the award winning designer who has created, among other things, a restruction of the famous Maison Horta, an award winning build at Relay for Life 2013, the steampunk fantasy of Asperatus for Fantasy Faire 2014 … and who is currently rebuilding the sewers of New Babbage in mesh (and tremendous detail) will be talking to Saffia Widdershins on Stage 2. We’ll also be talking about Beq’s work as a writer and photographer, and her work as a machinimist. It’s a chance to hear from an extraordinary talented creative.
