Glasz DeCuir’s exhibit at SL15B, Snap Your Selfie, encouraged people to sit down, snap a photo of their avatar and post it to our Flickr. Glasz compiled this machinima to celebrate the beauty of our Second Life.

Abnor Mole got a shot of the cake falling down this year and sped it up for a delightful show:
The cake fell moments ago but people continued to dance into the 16th year of SL!
Many thanks to all our resident attendees from the SLB Community. Special thanks to all the residents who contributed, exhibited and volunteered. All of our infrastructure builders who built amazing venues with us this year.
Everyone from our Performance venues.
All The Lindens and Moles from the Linden Dept of Public Works for help with special builds and maintaining the regions.

It is always my pleasure to work with all of you.

Jadeka Wirefly presents a slice of her SL life at Working Together For the Future. A RP community based at Pandora HomeTree, based on James Cameron’s Avatar, their futuristic world envisions that “through cooperation and respect humans help preserve and protect the natural balance of a distant moon for the future. ”
Lots of folks talk about education in SL but does anyone think about learning? What do you find out about yourself when you become an avatar? ChagalVision wants to reveal the inner workings at Learning
The performances are over but the exhibits are still up. We will be featuring a few throughout the rest of this week to keep you coming.
