Designing Worlds DW291 - Firestorm Gateway
In this episode we visit a unique collaboration between Linden Lab and Firestorm, the makers of the most popular third-party viewer, to improve the new user experience for Second Life. Firestorm has been allocated six regions to develop a series of experiences and tutorials, as well as areas designed purely to have fun (while learning new techniques at the same time) to give the best possible start to new residents.
We talk to Jessica Lyon and her colleagues and visit some of the new areas.
