Designing Worlds DW334 - Preserving SL
In this episode, the last of the season, we‘re in our studio for one of our periodic discussion shows, looking at a somewhat contentious issue: preserving Second Life - not the whole of it, but very special Second Life locations.
Joining us for this discussion are Patch Linden, of Linden Lab; Ran Heinrichs of the University of Washington’s iSchool; Arik Metzger, the owner of Innsmouth; and Tymus Tenk, the co-owner of Calas Galadhon.
What criteria should be used to preserve much-loved Second Life installations? How should it be done? These and many other questions about Second Life preservation are addressed in this episode.
In addition, in this feature-length discussion we include images of a variety of preserved classic Second Life locations such as Mont St-Michel, Svarga and The Galaxy, by our star photographer Wildstar Beaumont.
