Beta Contributor Wall

Second Life continues to grow thanks to its Residents, and this monument recognizes the early "beta pioneers" who helped make the baby steps possible and pushed SL into the public eye (in hand — get it?). Head north to find a public sandbox that's still used to create content, and farther north to check out what an old Welcome Area used to look like.
