Catching up on a few things..
The BOSL Awards 2011 from Metaverse TV on Vimeo.
I did a post about the Best of Second Life awards a few weeks back and never actually said who won the awards so here they are. The BOSL awards are unique in that they bring together a bunch of subgroups who never really interact with each other. There are many different worlds within second life that often thrive without even the knowledge of other groups. For example I know the artists and somewhat the architects of second life yet I know virtually nothing about models or home furnishings. The event was a lighthearted affair hosted by Editorial Clarity and Persia Bravin who both did a wonderful job.
The event is quite long 1:30 min, so I have put the times down for each category. Now if you are searching for say some nice animations, then just pop over to 29:10 and you will see the nominees and winner there. I am so very helpful.

And the next thing to catch up on is the opening of the LEA Art Sandbox. Chantal Harvey did a great machinima of the opening fun. The LEA sandbox is being run by Sasun Steinbeck, Solo Mornington and the wonderful PatriciaAnne Daviau. Both Solo and Patti have extensive sandbox experience with Solo being moderator of Artnation sandbox and Patti running IBM Sandbox for years.
