Here Comes the Big One - SL14B!

Every June, Second Life celebrates its Birthday.  This year marks the 14th year of Second Life, and it looks like the celebration will be one of the biggest and best yet.

I'm not going to go into details here.  I would either have to leave out a whole lot of stuff (and probably the one thing YOU would be most interested in!) or this post would go on for pages and pages.

But for those of you who haven't been to a Birthday before, here are the basics:

Every year, Linden Lab sets up a number of special regions.  On those regions, Residents create what is essentially a World's Fair of Second Life...hundreds of exhibits, games, and attractions.  There are also nearly continuous live performances on several stages throughout the area.  One of these has traditionally been the "Cake Stage"...a venue in the form of a gigantic birthday cake.  At the end of the Birthday Week, the Cake is destroyed...and it's quite a sight to see such a large structure come apart.

This year's theme is "Carnivalesque".  That should tell you that you are in for a real mind boggling, colorful, surreal experience!  Maybe even more so than usual, and I will tell you that every time I've visited the Birthday sims, it's definitely a case of Sensory Overload.

So mark the week of June 18-25 on your calendars, and be sure to share in Second Life's biggest annual celebration.
