Celebrating 15 years of Second Life

On a summers day fifteen years ago, Second Life (formerly Linden World in 2001) opened its doors to the public for the first time.

Things were very different then.  Avatars were called Primatars and they were made from the building blocks that were also used in basic buildings of the day.

Next weekend in celebration of Seconds Life's Birthday, everyone on the grid is invited to partake in SL15B, a community celebration with exhibits from the most popular places in Second Life.

We hope you will come and visit London City at SL15B next Sunday when the event begins.

Our Slurl (which comes online next weekend) is:

Here is a video of how it all began for the Lab with Linden World.  Enjoy!

Second Life Birthday - SL14B

Happy Birthday to Second Life, the worlds largest user-created interactive 3D experience.

Second Life turns 14 years old this week (and we're still waiting for our shoes to rez.. yup same joke we tell every year).

Each year, the finest builders in Second Life are invited to exhibit content in parcels that stretch ten regions.   We are thrilled to announce that as with the past 4 years, London City is the official (and only) representation of London in Second Life at  the SL14B celebrations.

The event starts at midday SL time (8pm in the UK) on Sunday, and we hope you will come and see us making an exhibition of ourselves.   We'll post the location to the event later in the week.

Happy Birthday to Second Life

Second Life turns 11 years old and today sees the start of the SL11B celebrations.

London City is the only London permitted to exhibit at the Official celebrations.  You can visit our plot from 12pm SL (8pm UK) today here:

The theme this year is Empires of the Future and we thought should celebrate all things British with the most iconic leader of modern times, Sir Winston Churchill.

Here is a video which hopefully captures the spirit of our show piece.  

See you this evening - our team will be on hand from 12.30pm SL at SL11B.

London City - Officially SL11B


The opening of Second Life's largest community event is just one day away. It seems like only yesterday we were at the closing events of SL10B and now here we are a year later about to celebrate the opening of SL11B, Second Life's Eleventh Birthday.


This years event features the best and brightest that Second Life has to offer, and we are pleased that London City has been counted among them. The only London in Second Life asked to participate at the Official SL11B event, the London City Exhibit is based on a bright and prosperous future.

Of course, being the only London chosen to exhibit did present some pressures but we happily rose to the challenge. It was great to be able to build in confidence knowing that those who abused their Second Life Birthday parcel last year to grief us were excluded from participation this year.

The build began with a concept and quickly took on a life of it's own. Growing and changing to become what we feel exemplifies this years theme, "The Empires Of The Future Are The Empires Of The Mind".

As part of the SL11Big Hunt, we have not one but TWO free gifts for you. These items were created by London Brand exclusively for London City's Exhibit. But you'll have to wait until tomorrow when the regions officially open before you can get your hands on these one of a kind items.
Everyone here at London City would like to thank the Community, Visitors and Merchants for making London City the most popular destination in Second Life.

London City and SL11B

London City is pleased to announce that once again we have been invited to exhibit at Second Life's biggest Community event, SL11B.

This years theme, Empires Of The Future, has been taken from a quote by Winston Churchill. What better way to personify this than London City, especially during the Centennial of The Great War.

The London City Exhibit, titled The Future Of London In Second Life, is being built to exemplify Winston Churchill's fighting spirit, working towards a future Second Life free from greifing and hatred. A place where all communities co-exist in peace and prosperity.

We were pleased to discover that London City has been chosen as the only London to exhibit at SL11B. With this in mind we have been working to create a distinctive and provocative exhibit.

Watch this space for further developments of the exhibit.

Whilst we build, pop over to London City and join the largest community in Second Life.

Second Life at 10

It's been ten years since Second Life started and I'm still waiting for my clothes to rez.

In its infancy, Second Life was a crude laggy, soupy and choppy 3D experience where nothing would rez and the viewers and regions would crash constantly. 

Ten years later, we now have mesh.

But the main point is, we have this fantastic community that interacts with each other and builds all kinds of incredible creations, limited only by skill and imagination. 

There is a birthday celebration on now, called SL10B and you can see the London City exhibit here:

Many Happy Returns to Second Life!
