“Where Have You Been?” visits Svarga and discovers SLRPS

Just after 12 noon and 4pm Pacific/Second Life time on Wednes­day and Sat­ur­day begin­ning April 27th (for two weeks) tune in for the lat­est edi­tion of “Where Have You Been?” where we take a look at places to vis­it and things to do around the Sec­ond Life Grid.

In Series 2, Episode 9, we vis­it a fab­u­lous loca­tion from the dim past: Svar­ga. It was cre­at­ed in 2006 by Laukosar­gas Svarog, and even in those days it was a must-see des­ti­na­tion — an excel­lent exam­ple of the vir­tu­al builder’s craft.  It’s immer­sive, and uses a rich mix­ture of shape and tex­tur­ing to evoke the world of the Gods from Slav­ic mythology.

It’s one of the regions pre­served by Lin­den Lab as being of spe­cial his­tor­i­cal inter­est — and we also dis­cuss the SLRPS (Sec­ond Life Region Preser­va­tion Soci­ety) and some of the oth­er his­toric regions pre­served under its banner.

And every four hours from 4am Pacif­ic, catch Engines of Our Inge­nu­ity from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Hous­ton — a radio pro­gramme that tells the sto­ry of how our cul­ture is formed by human creativity.
