This week, as we approach the 100th anniversary of the maiden voyage and sinking of the RMS Titanic following its collision with an iceberg in the North Atlantic, Designing Worlds visits a series of re-creations of this famous ocean liner in different Virtual Worlds. Elrik Merlin explores the oldest and best-known of several Titanics in Second Life and talks to an expert on the vessel and the events that befell it, as well as visiting a poignant memorial; while Saffia visits Kitely and an OSGrid virtual Belfast, home of the Harland & Wolff Shipyards where the vessel was built, and explores a fascinating underwater representation. Why does the Titanic hold such a deep fascination for so many people? What are some of the untold stories behind the disaster? What's it like to stand on the great central staircase, or on the bow of the vessel with your partner and wave your arms about? Find the answer to these and many other questions in this extended edition of Designing Worlds - the last in the current series.

Designing Worlds takes to the air - literally! - again in late April.

At Designing Worlds, we take enormous pride and pleasure in sharing the beauties of the grid with you, discussing new innovations, and highlighting issues of concern to residents. It means we get to visit the most amazing places and meet the most creative and ingenious people. Making the show is a treat every episode, and to be rewarded for doing what we love so much is a particularly fine cherry on on cake.

Hello everyone!

Welcome to the new website and the new forums! I hope we can see people in here discussing the shows - the issues - and what they'd like to see on forthcoming shows!

Saffia!!!! So brave you are, making the first forum post! I hope you like the new setup, and there are still more things coming, but I think we got things to the point where we felt things were "mostly working". Keep an eye out for bugs, and if you find them, our mission will be the squash em!

Our new season starts this week, and we have an exciting selection of topics lined up. We do hope you'll enjoy them. And don't forget, if you know somewhere that will be of interest to us or our listeners, on any grid, do let us know.

Saffia! I am so glad to see that you have procured this forum! I watched a couple of the videos of DW here on the TreetTV site, and they work marvelously well. I really enjoyed the Christmas show in Rothesey. My doesn't Elrik have a lovely home there!

Aisling

Hi everyone! What a great new forum for us to gather and talk about the show. Elrik's right, we do have some really interesting places to take viewers this season, and the first one is...well, that would be telling. But I wonder, might giraffes be involved?

My question is if InWorldz is OpenSim than why isn't it on the OpenSim grid list?? http://opensimulator.org/wiki/Grid_List. There are other OpenSim grids that are not on this page besides InWorldz like Openlife.
