SL14B Theme is Announced

The SL 14B Theme has been announced and logos are soon to be posted to the website for all to access.:

Our theme for SL14B is “Carnivalesque!”

If this is a birthday, then we’re going to have a festival worthy of Second Life®! Strike up the band, toss on your glad rags, and join us at the SL®14B Community Celebration as we hit the carnival.

While much of the interest around virtual reality has shifted to singular experiences, largely fueled by the pursuit of headset-focused content, we want to remind you of the joy of hundreds of people from all over coming together in one place in celebration, and form a carnival-like atmosphere that you simply cannot achieve alone. Let’s challenge all the perceptions, break all the molds, and show everyone that we know how to celebrate.

This is your chance to be part of the biggest fete Second Life can offer — the 14th birthday of the Second Life grid — and be part of the carnival atmosphere. This will be a time for mirth and merriment, and a time to both entertain, and be entertained. Come to the SL®14B Community Celebration and show us all a great time!

Thank you SL13B Community

We would like to thank those who helped us; staff, creators, contributors, exhibitors, performers and volunteers .

There are so many kind and generous people who assist us in throwing the biggest community based party of the year.

If you enjoyed this year’s event and want to be a part next year, keep an eye on this blog and stay in the SLB Community Group for notification of next year’s festivities.

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

Cya next time

~ Doc
