Second Life Meet Ups Now Seasonal
Thanks to the enormous success of our Second Second Life Meet Up in May, we had an overwhelming amount of requests at the event for us to do it on a more regular basis. To that end, we will be holding Doctor Who: Podshock / Gallifreyan Embassy Second Life Meet Ups now regularly.
Second Life is a virtual 3D environment that enables club members, listeners, website visitors, and all Doctor Who fans to come together to meet up, talk, dance, hang out, party, etc. no matter where you live. All that is needed is broadband internet access and the free Second Life client software (and a computer capable of running it). It breaks down the geographic barriers and make it easy for us to connect. It's the next best thing to being there in person.
Back on the 23rd of November 2006, we held our first meet up on Second Life on the suggestion of Merlin McCarley. It was a huge success and people have been asking us to do it again since that time. We finally were able to arrange a date last month and thanks to the help of Terry Lightfoot and Nik Hewitt along with Victor1st and HBK, it was an amazing event.
We have decided to make it a regular event. We will hold it on a seasonal basis. So our next event will be in August, then again in November, February, and back again in May. The following are our tentative dates (these are subject to change) as of now (they are all Saturdays starting at 4pm scheduled in SL time which is the same as Pacific in the US see each event listing for schedule):
- August 15, 2009 (1pm for TARDIS demo, 3pm-6pm live DJ and dancing)
- November 21, 2009 November 14, 2009
- February 27, 2010 February 20, 2010 (moved to avoid conflict with Gallifrey 21 changed date)
- May 15, 2010
So be sure to make plans on being at our future Second Life meet ups. It is a great way to meet an interact with each other without the cost and expense of a plane trip or traveling hours by car to get together. In fact, in Second Life, you can travel by TARDIS!
They will be held in Katrina (Cardiff and the Doctor Who Experience) on Second Life like last time (clicking on the linked Katrina name will bring you to the location in Second Life). See the video below of Victor1st giving an introduction to Second Life and the land of Katrina.
