Designing Worlds continues our tenth birthday celebration season today at 2pm, looking back to 2010 – Linden Lab’s “Year of Delight”

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 19th February, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams in Second Life, as we continue our celebration of ten years of the show – looking back to 2010.

It was billed by Linden Lab as the Year of Delight = and whether or not that was a true prediction will, we hope, emerge within the show. But here are some clues – two changes of CEO, massive lay-offs, viewer wars, rows at the SL7B … it all makes for a fascinating discussion with our resident historian, Marianne McCann.

And there are other treats in the shape of extracts from shows in 2010, including not just Second Life but visits to other grids like the Reaction Grid and the beautiful Heritage Key, as well as fascinating Second Life locations.

And there’s even a little fore-warning of the coming of mesh, with what was a very rare occurrence in those days – the appearance of a Linden on the show!

So do come and join us for a fascinating show in our special anniversary season at 2pm SLT.

Or – if you can’t attend in person – tune in to the web at 2pm SLT on Monday for a showing on SLartist – or catch it later in the week on the SLArtist.com channel, the Aview TV Designing Worlds channel – or on the Designing Worlds blog.

Sadly, none of the places from this 2010 show remains on the grid, with the exception of the medical centre of Imperial College London, and that is now closed to visitors.
