Lots happening on the island

I just got back from a two week vacation and got a chance to wander around the island this afternoon. It is developing so wonderfully. Go take a stroll! Here are some photos of our hard working builders.

Island Map and Signs

Information signs have been added back into the island landscape, and now includes an island map at our central landing point in the Willamette Lowlands. The tent just behind this spot will house general island information- project process, opportunities to get involved, and an island events schedule.

While the pathways need some fine-tuning adjustment, they are also in place to help aid you in interpreting the island layout. If you want to visit each available area on the island, just follow the path and read each sign to find out what's planned for the space, and who to contact to get involved.

Beautiful Sandbox Chaos

For two hours last Wednesday, DharmaPuppy Pinklady and I went out to Rock Creek campus at PCC where we work, and helped introduce a class of 12 CIS133G-Introduction to Computer Game Programming students to the basics of Second Life building. What an incredible experience! Above is a collage of some of the wonderful things that sprouted up in our sandbox in less than two hours. This group of brilliant kids, I'll thank them again for playing. I also learned a valuable lesson. Give kids a system to game, and they will. Always un~check the "allow terraforming" box BEFORE you let the sandbox horde loose. ;)
