For those who haven’t already noticed, Creative Commons’ home on Kula 4 in Second Life is currently undergoing a complete make over – which is happening alongside our Real life office move! Thanks to the ideas of Professor Mark Perry (Learned Om) and Nic Suzor (Nic Marx) of CC Australia, and the work of our in-world friends, we are expecting to hold the Grand opening of the new CC HQ in June 2007. The design plans include a CC marketplace, school, sandbox, and new home for FreeCulture.org. Check it out for yourself!
Our SL design and build experts are Bibi Book, Barney Boomslang, and Kimba McMillan. Bibi and Barney are the same duo who brought us the avatar sized CC licensed chess set, and resulting monthly games. Kimba is Bibi’s apprentice. He has helped to organize events, assisted in making the new layout, and is working on learning more about building and terraforming. Barney Boomslang is a scripter and builder of mostly avatars and simscapes. He hosts the CC radio stream for our listening enjoyment at Kula. Bibi Book is a builder as well, who does some scripting. She wrote a Hitchiker’s Guide to SL. She also teaches on demand, helps newcomers learn the ropes, and supports live music at her beach cafe. Find them at Lummerland or roaming around the virtualscape.
