DEN Second Life Gala a Huge Success!

When I walked into the DEN headquarters in Second Life last night, I knew I was in for a good time.  This event had all the characteristics of a typical DEN event, Fun, Contests and  Collaboration with colleagues.  The event started with a ribbon cutting ceremony by DEN S.L. Leadership Council Chair Riptide Furse. 

The first floor was a place to mix and mingle.  There was lots of free stuff like t-shirts, laptops and glow necklaces (nothing says party like a pink glow necklace).  Their was a laptop where you could enter a raffle.  I myself won an hour S.L. tutorial with S.L. Leadership Council Member Lor Fredriksson.  I really need this since I am relatively new to S.L.  Being new it was hard to follow all of the conversations going on. I also kept bumping into everyone but I think I finally have flying down.

The second floor is where I spent most of my time.  This is were the dance floor was located.  Laelia Laval really knows here stuff.  She loaded the dancing ball with some fabulous dance moves and some great music.  Steve Dembo was definitely shaking his groove thing in a white with black lettering unitard. Snoopy and Woodstock were also dancing to the beat.

JessieMarie Flangan was up on the roof showing us a demonstration of Holo Emitter.  I’m not 100% sure what it was, but every time I went up on the roof there was something different there.  There was a theater, a park and a nice pool.  All of these provided a nice place to mix and mingle with colleagues.

All in all this was a great time and I thank the DEN S.L. Leadership Council for their hard work.  Please enjoy some of the screen shots from last night.  They were created using a website called Slide.  You can create different types of slide shows with different skins.  It is pretty neat.
