après building

After building, time for a little partying. I was invited to a Linden Concierge Party on Saturday–the Concierge service is the special support Linden Labs offers to owners of islands. The party had a Roman theme and was held on a group of islands that house a Mount Olympus, Colosseum, Temple, etc.

It was open for 24 hours and I dropped in a few times from early morning to mid-afternoon. There were about 60 avatars on each of the five islands at any given time, and let me tell you, that created a lot of lag and difficulty getting in to some spots. I finally got into the Colosseum twice and danced a little, as you can see below in my Atlantean blue toga.

I would have preferred a smoky jazz club, where I could have done more socializing. As it was, in some of the remoter spots, I was reluctant to push myself into conversations with small groups of two or three. Here’s one question I have about Second Life identity: Why do so many female avatars choose such questionable attire? I guess that’s what I was thinking after returning home to our coffeehouse.

The party locations were Insula Augusta, Cogito ergo sum, Mount Olympus, Colosseum, and The Temple regions. Type any of those names into your in-world map to see them. I assume they are public when not reserved for such an event.
