One of the things you get when you buy a Second Life premium membership is a free home. I happen to think this is a dandy idea, even though a lot of people make fun of the actual homes. I think that criticism is not really justified because those Linden homes are great for new residents and even for us oldies. For example, here’s a shot of the Second Life Bloggers club house.

and that’s me hanging out there on the sofa.
Thanks to Tymmerie Thorne for using her Linden home.
|If you think you’re going to be inword for a year,
buy an annual membership for $72.
When you include the L$300 week stipend you get paid back,
your monthly cost is a little bit more than $1.
Here’s something else. I noticed that the Linden homes have Infohubs for each of the three themed areas. The Infohub for the modern region seemed very corporate campus to me, but I found that the Infohub for the Asian themed region to be especially interesting. Here’s a couple pics.

Personally, I like this modern campus design
and the build is very well done, high quality.
|This is the Shareta Osumai Infohub @ Kita.
It is very elaborate and the LL builders did a good job.
There is one problem though which I’ll discuss
in an upcoming post.
|This is the Elderglen Infohub @ Eldervale.
I’m afraid this one was hard for me to adapt to,
but I get the idea and I’m sure peeps interested
in living in a fatasy setting enjoy this.
I think these Linden home regions are one more example of things the Lab is doing well. I’ve read so many negative articles lately, I just wanted to point this out. I will followup soon with an post about the Shareta Osumai Infohub @ Kita. It is a very elaborate area and deserves a full pictorial and some commentary.
