Designing Worlds talks to the Lindens about Stilt Homes, Special Designs, uplifting to the Cloud … and more (including a forthcoming snowfight)

In our new episode of Designing Worlds, we sit down for a chat with Patch and Brett Linden, about recent happenings in and future plans for Second Life. And we cover a wide range of topics – with some interesting side trips!

We talk to Brett Linden, VP of Marketing for Linden Lab and Patch Linden, Vice President of Product Operations for Linden Lab in a wide ranging discussion that covers the Uplift to the Cloud, now largely completed, and – now that new land is once again an option – the forthcoming Linden Homes release of Stilt Homes.

We also discuss the impact of the pandemic on Second Life and how the Lab has handled the significant influx of new and returning residents as the virtual environment has become increasingly important, including the availability of “turnkey” educational and conference environments that users can adapt and configure from a range of available designs.

Wildstar Beaumont gives us a look around Rosehaven in the autumn and finally, we look ahead to winter treats the Linden have planned, with a visit to Winter Wonderland … and news of a planned snowfight. Linden Lab versus the Residents – bring it on!
