Commune Utopia 3rd Birthday celebrations


Commune Utopia celebrated its third birthday with a little festival.

Here are some pictures :)


Sunvibes Workshop Opening Sat - 20sept2014




The workshop is a creative project that encourages SL-ers to get creative, build, make music, start a club, try DJing, or any other creative form they might fancy.

As part of the project we are busy creating a resource center that offers free and full perm materials ( textures, scripts, fractals, objects ) and compiles useful info to help you get started with building, creating.

I spent the week gathering most info that helped me to learn SL Skills - freely available textures and texture organizers, scripts, free and full perm objects, tutorials, fractals and more .. its not at all complete but it is already a great resource - so if you are into building - check it out :)



 After an initial chat about open content, ubuntu, and ways of sharing - we checked out the center.
