|Honor McMillan has cleverly used the "shared media" of Viewer 2 technology in her "Our Portrait of Second Life" exhibit to show life in our world and the people in it. Sit in a comfy tree and click any frame to start the show!|
|One of the most beautiful builds in all Second Life, "Farstar New Earth" (SLurl), has made it to the party in the form of Clausida222 Jewell's "SL8B Honey Swamp." Incredibly detailed textures and a riot of motion transport you to an other-worldly place. This one exhibit you can find yourself lost in for some time.|
|"Remember Your Magic" by the Virtual Railway Consortium is a surprising bit of fun! Sit on the toy choo-choo outside and suddenly you are aboard a ... well, I won't spoil it for you. This is magic, just what the birthday celebration is all about.|
|More magic comes from the mind of Kirstens Viewer, a popular way to access Second Life (read more here). Us non-programmers finally get to see what happens inside the viewer to bring us our world. Just don't step in the memory leak!|
|Yes, yes, yes, I meant to to put this in my Must See post from yesterday ... hey, I'm dopey sometimes. But you must see the dolphins at "Tropical Creations Interactive Dolphin Trick Show." You can ride them, make them do tricks, and even feed them! Whenever I needed a break building or exploring, I'd come here to rewind and often folks would join me when I announced in builder chat what I was doing. Bring you swim suit and a box lunch, you'll be here a while.|
|More beauty besides the wonderful exhibits can be found in the celebration's infrastructure. Linden Lab's "moles" and other staff have created some fabulous structures all over, like this great park land for the "Park Stage" complex (Web). You can see my pixy alt was instantly attracted.|
|I'll admit it ... my favorite neighbor at SL8B is the "Raglan Shire Circus" on the parcel adjacent to my build (Lesbos@SL8B; SLurl). Its not just for Tinies, either. Biggies can have fun on the Mustache Ride Carousel and play like our little friends! Look for the fun gifts in the red & white striped tent.|
Whew! That's a lot of places and there is still more to see. Even with all the time I spent exploring before the party opened to the public I still haven't seen everything. With any luck I can sneak away from my "work" and run amok like a tourist soon.
