Linden Homes & Infohubs

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.

This is the living room area,
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.

This is the Meadowbrook Infohub @ Ravenbrook.
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.

    Yeah Mera, this is the mothership for me. And i'm discovering that WordPress is easier too, but I don't want to restart building the readership because it's taken so long to get it going here (and I'm lazy too).
