Cory Ondrejka, chief technology officer of Linden Lab, took a trip to Singapore this week to speak at the Global Summit for Creative Industries. While he was there, he figured he'd introduce some teens from the one of the most technologically forward thinking cities in the world to his world of Second Life.
On the virtual end of this introduction was Global Kids Island, where we were thrilled to be inundated by the group of Singaporean young people. They were literally falling from the sky!
After they gathered themselves up off the ground, we toured the island, with lots of help from others in-world. Big shout outs to Claudia Linden, Mercury Metropolitan, Mariel Voyunicef and Alpha Zaius, who in a pinch threw together a flying tour bus, creaky wheels and all, to shuttle everyone around the island.
Bringing people and perspectives from around the world together is a key part of Global Kids' work, and we love that there's now a great medium through which we can do this.
