OnLive, the leader in cloud gaming, today released an exciting new service for Second Life users. SL Go, now in open beta, is a mobile Second Life viewer for Android that delivers a fully immersive desktop-like experience on tablets.
With SL Go, you can experience Second Life from anywhere you have Wi-Fi or 4G connectivity, with ultra high-quality graphics, full shaders, shadows, and the Advanced Lightning Model on Android devices. Not only can you get high-quality graphics on a low-powered device, but you also donít have to sacrifice frame rate or draw distance for high fidelity inworld explorations. Thanks to super-fast gigabit connections with OnLiveís high-performance gaming servers, objects and textures rez quickly when logging in and teleporting. OnLive has clocked the SL Go viewer at upwards of 200 fps set to Ultra with Maximum Render Distance, allowing people to participate in events, engage in combat games, and generally enjoy immersion in Second Life at a level never before possible on a mobile device.
With SL Go, OnLive has brought touchscreen interaction to the Second Life experience, but if you prefer keyboard and mouse, you can opt to connect these devices and interact with your friends in the same way you always have. SL Go gives you access to edit menus, inventory, preference settings and chat management just like the Second Life Viewer on your home computer.
Youíll need an OnLive account to launch the app, and then youíll log into Second Life with the same credentials youíve always used. To learn more, register, and get started with a free trial now, visit slgo.onlive.com.
For the time being, SL Go is available to users logging in from the US, Canada and the UK. OnLive plans to expand the service to other locales in the future, so if you are interested in having SL Go in your region, sign up here. The company is also pursuing an iOS version of the app. You can sign up here to be notified when it is released.

Merlin, Gandalf, Raistlin, DresdenÖ Ever wanted your name on that list? Of course you have. But while most of us while away our hours dreaming of controlling the energies that bind us, Zachh Barkley made it a virtual reality. In this episode of The Drax Files, Drax interviews Zachh, one of the biggest magic producers in Second Life. Itís a great conversation about entrepreneurship, work/life balance and take a glimpse into the amazing mystery of where inspiration can come from. Thereís also fireballs, broomsticks and eldritch lightning to keep you on your feet!

As Linden Labís new CEO, I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to you all - Iím Ebbe Altberg, aka Ebbe Linden in Second Life (although Iíve been advised by many of you to use an alt when cruising around). You can find my official bio on LindenLab.com, and thereís a nice piece with a bit more about my background and experience over on Inara Peyís blog, Living in a Modem World (I offered a few clarifications in this comment there).
Why did I choose to take this on? I did it because I love the idea behind our products, what you can do with them, and the potential for what we can become. I studied fine arts and computer science, and I find creating digital products and services a creative blend that I absolutely love. For me then, the creative and empowering technologies and marketplaces Linden Lab are creating are just incredible materials to work with. I have a huge belief that we can do great things together. Great for you, for Linden Lab, and for our investors. Linden has learned a ton that few companies have ever had the opportunity to learn when it comes to empowering people to contribute in creative ways and collaborate with a global online community. Itís unique.
I donít really consider myself a Ďgamer,í but I also donít think that Ďgameí would describe Second Life either, and Iíve found Second Life intriguing for a long time. In addition to having personally explored the virtual world a bit back when it first started (of course Iím diving in more now), my son was a very active Resident as a teenager, and Iíve been consistently impressed by the incredible things the Second Life community creates. Iím proud to be joining the team that enables this level of creativity, and as I said in our press release, Iím committed to supporting our customers to help you become even more successful.
Many of you have been very kind in welcoming me via Twitter (Iím @ebbealtberg there), and Iíve read quite a few thoughtful blog posts and forum threads offering advice and raising some issues to my attention - thank you for that! Iíll continue to read all that I can (although I wonít always be able to respond to everything), and Iím looking forward to getting more familiar with Second Life and its communities through both personal experience inworld and communication with you and my colleagues.
There are big opportunities ahead as we further improve and grow Second Life, and Iím looking forward to our future together.
I will join the others in asking that Youtube videos not be left to auto-play each time we log onto this site. What if we all were to "autoplay" our videos? It would be chaos! I play this music in protest, to muffle out that inane message about scion chickens. I will silence this video when I hear silence around me when I open this page
As I promised the video is now silent. Next time Kabayero sets a video to auto play, I am putting this back on in all it's loud glory!
