Three weeks have flown past, and the 2016 edition of the Home & Garden Expo is over.
It has been a journey, to put it mildly — and it has been a great one! Working with everyone involved has been a pleasure and a privilege, and we are so very grateful for everything that exhibitors, bloggers, and visitors have brought to this event.
The grand total at the time of writing is an amazing L$ 4,010,116! This is more than we dared hope for, and a result that every single one of you owns a piece of.
We hope the Expo has been a good experience for you, and that you will return next year. Until then, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for what you made happen here. You have helped make a difference in the ongoing struggle against the horrible disease that has affected so many of us in so many ways.
As the Home and Garden Expo draws to an end, it’s very clear that Second Life creators are still as vibrant, and inventive as ever. There are new tools that are making Second Life richer than ever before, not just Mesh, but experience tools and the promise of Bento. The project currently known as Sansar lies in the future, and we don’t know what that will bring, but here and now Second Life is ripe with possibilities, supported by a dedicated team at Linden Lab. As more and more people start to consider the possibilities of VR, Second Life continues to be the future … now.
