Designing Worlds explores Second Life’s History – and our own!

In this show from the archives, we look back to one of our history shows where – in celebration of our tenth anniversary – we ran a series of shows looking at the events of all the intervening years. In this show, we look back to 2008 – 2009, right back to Designing Worlds’ beginnings as MetaMakeover, a show on SLCN.

We’re helped by Marianne McCann, Second Life historian, who shares with us some of the features that arrived and frictions that enraged the residents of Second Life in those years (e.g. <cough>the Homesteads row</cough>), and by Wildstar Beaumont who has ransacked his photo archive for us!

And you’ll have a chance to see extracts from the very first show, Mr Merlin’s first appearance as co-host, the beautiful virtual Dresden Art Museum, the story of the changeover from MetaMakeover to Designing Worlds … and much more!
