The Man

The Man

"The Man" statue is one of the only surviving objects from the original "Linden Town" area that was developed in Second Life during the earliest Alpha stage of its development. At times, The Man has served as a shrine where miscellaneous offerings were left, and a celebration of the creativity SL was founded upon.

It remains one of the few preserved examples of what inworld architecture was like back in the day. Come visit and find out how early pioneers survived before sculpted prims, then stroll to the basement for a time capsule of vintage goods.

Boardman Themed Community

Boardman Themed Community

Before Linden Homes, there was Boardman, an early experiment of a themed community in a gentle suburban style. Don't be surprised that the zoning guidelines date back to January 2003, and should you run across any of the locals, they're mighty friendly, so ask if they'll share their stories.

Baffin Island

Baffin Island

This island has seen many significant events, from its time as a welcoming spot for teen Residents "graduating" to adulthood to the hills used in Linden Lab ad promos for the then-new WindLight graphics. An abandoned library-turned-coffee shop is at the heart of it all, reminding us of how virtual connections can transform into real-life friendships.
