Exploring SL6B- Uplink

Today puzzles me a bit, because in a few hours, Philip Linden will be giving his closing ceremony speech for SL6B. And yet, it will still continue to be open for another week. I heard that ‘all the events will be over’ by the time he delivers his speech. But that isn’t true at all- I don’t think there is anything stopping people from having events at their builds, over the course of the next week. The SLPN build certainly is, as there will continue to be live podcasting shows daily until SL6B closes. (And by the way, for the podcast recording of the excellent discussion panel regarding the Australian ban on SL, go to http://slpodcast.net/2009/06/metanews-xtra-aussie-special/)

Today, I’ll be exploring the Uplink sim. http://slurl.com/secondlife/SL6B%20Uplink/126/126/25 

Starting with the Volunteer Headquarters for this years SL6B. I didn’t see any actual volunteers at the build. However, there are listings inside that will tell you who the coordinators and staff for each of the sims are, and their online status in case you need assistance.

The PrimPlay Educational Sculpture is a fun and interesting exhibit by alvid Majestic and Sandy Susanto. PrimPlay is a dynamic sculpture demonstrating many of the possibilities obtainable with prims in Second Life. Its really pretty, and fun to watch the shapes changing and disappearing, only to reappear again in a different form.



Potatotem is a visual timeline of Thomas Potato’s life as a builder, starting at the bottom and reaching 245 meters into the sky.
