How should we maintain Second Life as Linden Lab works on a new platform? See Part 2 of the Designing Worlds discussion

21 July 2014

Join us today, Monday 21st July at 2pm SLT at the Designing Worlds studio in Garden of Dreams for the second (and final) part of our discussion about Second Life’s continued viability and the ways in which Linden Lab might attract existing communities to their new platform.

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!

(Please note the major rule & special prize guidelines as well as the Audience Participation Prizes for watching the machinima.)

WHAT:
MachinimUWA VI Film Challenge & 5th UWA Grand Art Challenge. You may enter either the art challenge, the film challenge or both.

WHEN:
Entries Close at Midnight SLT 31st October 2014.  Winner will be announced in December 2014

THEME:
The theme is ‘TRANSCENDING BORDERS.’ Artists & filmmakers can interpret the theme as they see fit. Whether transcending borders between time and space, past and present, one nation and another, one language and another, a culture or civilisation or any other of the innumerable borders that present themselves as we navigate our lives. You the artist… You the machinimatogrpher…You decide.

WHY THIS THEME?
This theme was selected by Professor Ted Snell, Chairman Director of the Cultural Precinct, UWA and who inspired the very first of the UWA art challenges in 2009. This theme is in honour of the ‘Transcending Borders’ exhibition at UWA’s Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery in 2014. This exhibition gave visual form to the developing cross-cultural relationship between South Korea and Western Australia using The Berndt Museum‘s collection of historical objects from Korea as a catalyst for cultural exchanges and collaboration.

MAJOR RULES FOR ART:
Artwork entered should be able to be interpreted by the casual viewer as being representative of the theme. Where the link to the theme is difficult to ascertain, this should be referenced in a notecard accompanying the work.

There is a 150 LI (land impact) limit with a limit of 1 entry per artist.

Copy/Mod/Transfer permissions are not a requirement, however COPY perms are appreciated.

MAJOR RULES FOR MACHINIMA:
There is no limit to the number of entries you may choose to send in.

The theme is ‘Transcending Borders’ and you may interpret this theme as you see fit, however the average viewer would need to be able to appreciate how you fit this theme (alternatively, please indicate in the notes how it fits in the film notes on the web).

Your machinima must be made specifically for this challenge, and this should be indicated in the opening credits ‘For The University of Western Australia’s MachinimUWA VII: Transcending Borders’

You do not have to film on the UWA sims, however this of course will be appreciated, and there is a Special UWA Prize which will be made available to a film which includes either Winthrop Clock Tower, The Somerville Auditorium or The Sunken Gardens.

4 mins 30 seconds is the strongly recommended maximum length, but this is not a hard rule.

PRIZES:
There is a prize pool of L$1.03 Million, with a L$500,000 each for art and machinima and at least 10 prizes in each. For Machinima, there will be a Special UWA Prize for the best machinima that includes Winthrop Clock Tower, The Sunken Gardens or the Sommerville Theatre in the Machinima. There will also be 2 Curators Prizes, one each for art and film. For the Curators machinima prize, this will go to the best film that features one of the artworks from either the current challenge or one of the winning works from previous UWA art challenges.

There are also audience participation awards for just watching the machinimas and submitting a top 10 list.

Relay for Life Weekend is over – but you still have chance to visit the regions!

21 July 2014

Relay for Life Weekend is over =- but you still have the chance to visit the 42 regions, which are expected to stay open for – at the very least – the early part of this week.

RFL 2014 – Closing Ceremony, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

And believe me, it is well worth a visit! The teams have created some of the best camp-sites I have seen, with beauty, fun and information about cancer – often all in the same parcel!

In addition there are some stunning designer builds – and some great underwater builds too.

So don’t delay! You can start your journey at the Welcome Point, which has tons of information - but you can also just pull up the map and take your choice from all the sims whose name starts with RFL.  And you’ll see from the map that this year’s track was arranged in the shape of a ten – because Relay for Life of Second Life is now ten years old and – in terms of fundraising – it is now expected to be in the top 20 Relays for Life anywhere is the world for 2014.

Designing Worlds discusses how to maintain Second Life as Linden Lab works on a new platform: Part 1 – now on the web!

21 July 2014

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we have Part 1 of a discussion of Second Life’s continued viability and the ways in which Linden Lab might attract existing communities to their new platform – is now on the web.

We have a great panel of guests in this first part of the discussion – 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).

Relay for Life Weekend starts today!

19 July 2014

RFL 2014 – Opening Ceremony, photograph by Wildstar Beaumont

Today, at 10am, the fantastic weekend of events that marks the climax of the 2014 season starts.

Relay For Life is the signature event of the American Cancer Society and has been active, and continually growing, now in Second Life for 10 years.

  • In 2005, the first Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL) was attended by a few hundred avatars and raised almost $5,000 US dollars for the American Cancer Society.
  • In 2009 the Relay For Life of Second Life raised over $270,000. US dollars and was attended by thousands of avatars.
  • In 2011 the Relay For Life of Second Life raised over US$375,000 and ran right past the US$1,000,000 mark during the 2011 campaign!
  • In 2012 the Relay For Life of Second Life raised over US$375,000, taking the total raised since 2005 to over US$1,600,000 by the end of our 2012 fundraising season.
  • And in 2013, Relay for Life of Second Life, in a thrilling climax to the Relay weekend, crossed the 2,000,000 mark!

This year the plan is to raise US$401,000 – i.e. 401K. That figure represents a huge task – we started the weekend at 382,000.  The significance of the number is that 401 is the tax form that mark retirement in the United States – the plan is to RETIRE CANCER!

The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe (and in Second Life) a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, to remember loved ones lost, and to fight back against the disease.

Relay Weekend  is a fun-filled, overnight event that unites SL individuals throughout the world to celebrate survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer), remember loved ones and raise money for the fight against cancer.

The RFL Telethon Studios, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

And the TV channels of Second Life are coming together to produce a twenty-four telethon to cover this event, which you can watch on slartist.com.

  • The Telethon is covering the 24 hours of Relay. Live coverage is from 9am – 10pm (including the Luminaria ceremony at 9pm) on Saturday 19th, and from 6.00am till 11am on Sunday 20th, plus  on Saturday.
  • During that time, we’ll bring you news of the Relay from our studio – with information about all the events that are going on, together with trackside interviews with teams and sim designers.
  • And when we’re not live, we’ll be showing interviews with Chairs from the RFL Committee, classic clips from RFL history, and TV shows from Treet TV that have featured Relay for Life.

 

 

 


When clarification only muddies the waters …

19 July 2014

That is, of course, if something was intended as a clarification rather than further obfuscation.

I am talking about the new Terms of Service from Linden Lab, of course.

And really, I can say it no better than Inara who has an excellent post on the subject (this comes from one of her comments to the blogpost – but read the blogpost AND the comments if you are interested in learning why not just content creators but machinima makers, artists and writers are so concerned about the changes to the Terms of Service:

A clear, concise explanation of why the terminology used and why the form in which it is presented has been determined as being the most suitable and how it assists the Lab in the execution of their role as the service provider would help. Particularly as for the vast majority of SL’s existence, and allowing for the broader remit of this ToS compared to those pre-August 2013, a more qualified statement with respect to the provisioning of shared rights has in the past always been deemed appropriate by the Lab.

Or in other words – talk to us, dammit!

Not even necessarily with us – I can appreciate how difficult it could be to assemble a representative group of concerned residents for dialogue – every group will be self-selecting, and the loudest voices are not always the most concerned/affected. But what Inara asks for – a clear, concise explanation – would be of immeasurable benefit in helping residents to understand the thinking involved here.

You might also want to take a look at Vaki’s (Agenda Format) legal dissection of the relevant clauses here.

Designing Worlds explores Flotsam – and enters the amazing world of Aley – now on the web!

29 June 2014

Don’t miss the recent Designing Worlds show where we visit we visit the wonderful Freeport Township of Flotsam, feed the Kraken, encounter the Nautilus and Captain Nemo’s underwater observatory, contemplate a trip to the moon and a voyage to the centre of the earth – and undertake an amazing underwater journey – all courtesy of the fabulous creative Aley!

Aley has – under a variety of guises – been an amazing creator in Second Life for a great many years, and the Freeport Township of Flotsam is a brilliant example of her skill, her inventiveness and her sense of fun! It’s a floating town in Blake Diego, with strong overtones of Jules Verne – as we discovered whenwe visit Nemo’s Observatory, Saffia explores the Nautilus and Elrik takes a perilous journey to the centre of the earth!

The Freeport Township of Flotsam in Blake Diego photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

But there are other elements too which are wonderful to discover. Who can resist feeding the kraken (even if it takes a whale to satisfy his appetite), or dining yourself at one of the restaurants – McSushi, perhaps, with its dragon arches, or The White Whale (which serves excellent seafood)? Each building holds stories and surprises – some enchating, some alarming … what could have happened to the previous occupants of Stan’s Previously Owned Coffins?

The Freeport Township of Flotsam in Blake Diego photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

As we discovered on last week’s show, Aley has also been busy decorating the waters of Blake’s Deep and we conclude by taking an underwater tour that leads us to a fantastic underwater mer carnival (the tour continues without us – but we couldn’t resist stopping off here!).

Aley’s Mer Arcade, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

All in all, this is a fantastic show – and most of the items we see are on the Marketplace at AleyMart – and all absolutely free.

You can see more of Aley’s works at the Second Life 11th Birthday Community Celebrations. One of these is in The Blackened Mirror exhibit. As part of an amazing demonstration of Rescene (you really must get over there and try it out!) we have re-created the mad scientist’s laboratory that appeared in Episode 1 of Season 2.

Nemo’s Obervatory at The Freeport Township of Flotsam in Blake Diego photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

And there are two exhibits devoted to Aley’s work – the historical All Things Aley, SL11B Branch, which focuses on the history of her wonderful creations as Aradia Asylum (2006 – 2008) when she was such a great part of founding the “hobo ethos” of producing high quality free content, as Aley Ariai (2008-2010) , as Lora Lemon, and most recently as Aley (2011 – present), in addition to presenting material on the Boardman themed community which was created back in the beta era of Second Life – and still exists today! And then there’s the Arcadia Asylum – Living Library & Freebie Center, a wonderful display by a group of like-minded individuals, working to preserve and catalogue the works Aley in all her incarnations, and to make these items available to all for free.

More time to Hunt around at the SL11B Community Celebration!

29 June 2014

There’s a terrific Hunt at the SL11B Community Celebration – and the MadMan can tell you all about it – and will (as long as you leave his donuts alone).

And it goes on till July 5th!

SL11BIG HUNT

 

This is a BIG Hunt so big that it has 4 Trails: Northern, Eastern, Southern and Western. Check out the map at HUNT SL.
