Ding, ding, ding, round number two

Lab Chat returns on January 21st – with Ebbe Linden (aka Ebbe Altberg, CEO of Linden Lab) answering more of your questions!

Just to remind you, Lab Chat is the name of the new series that is aimed at providing Second Life users with the opportunity to have your questions put to Lab management and personnel.

The second episode of Lab Chat, recorded in front of a live audience and then broadcast on numerous streams including Second Life’s You Tube channel, AviewTV and SLArtist as well as being available in audio and written transcription.  Is being held at 10.30am SLT in the LEA Theater with seating available on LEA2, 3 and 4.

As with the first event, you are being invited to submit your questions via a Lab Chat forum thread. Questions to be asked will be selected by members of the Lab Chat production team. Those submitting selected questions will be invited to attend the recording of the session, and put their question directly to Ebbe in voice if they wish; otherwise questions will be asked the Lab Chat hosts, Saffia Widdershins and Jo Yardley.

How do you submit your questions?

You enter your questions on the special Linden Lab Forum which will be opened for questions shortly – LL will tell you when and where to go!

The questions to feature on the show will be chosen by the Lab Chat team (who are all residents). Don’t worry if your question isn’t chosen – as you may have a chance to ask it in the open session at the end (if there is time).

Those users whose questions are chosen will be invited to appear on the stage. They will be able to put their questions directly to Ebbe, in voice if they wish (or their questions will be read if they don’t use Voice/Skype).

The audience will be in the other three regions of the Theater. Voice relays mean that what is said will be audible on all four regions. There are also a set of text chat relays so that all text should be visible on all regions, and we have a team in the Theater who will be providing a voice-to-text service to let people know what is being said in voice. If there’s time, questions asked in text chat will also be put to Ebbe.

There will be a full transcription published later to accompany the video. Highlights will be broadcast on the Drax Radio Files show.

So get your questions in by Friday 15th January– and be at the show on the 21st.

Breaking News - The Lindens are finally ready to talk to you - Lacy Muircastle reporting

Over the years I have heard a constant whine from 'Joe Resident' about how inaccessible the Lindens are, how they don't care about the virtual platform they created or the residents that inhabit the space, how it's all just a money making racket.  
Now you have the opportunity to be heard, have your say, get some answers.

On Tuesday, November 10th, the Lab announced the launch of Lab Chat,  “an opportunity for you to ask Lindens your questions during a live taping that will be recorded and archived for everyone to view.”

The first Lab Chat will be Thursday, November 19th, at 10:30am SLT at the Linden Endowment for the Arts Theatre – with guest Ebbe Altberg, CEO of Linden Lab.

Residents from the Lab Chat production team – Draxtor Despres, Gentle Heron, Elrik Merlin, Petlove Petshop, Inara Pey, Aisling Sinclair, Devin Vaughan, Saffia Widdershins, and Jo Yardley – who will pick questions to ask Ebbe from the forum thread  – so be sure to get your questions into the thread no later than Friday November 13th, 2015. Authors of selected questions will be invited to ask their question live at the in-world show. Time permitting – additional questions from the audience will be answered.
I am led to believe that if you are unable to attend the live show, a recording will be available shortly after the first Lab Chat wraps, so there is no reason to miss out.
Diarise November 19th at 10:30am SLT. Don’t forget to add your questions to the forum thread - be heard!!
All things being equal, it's hoped that Lab Chat will become a monthly series. As questions arise you will have the opportunity to put them to the Lindens by leaving them here --> forum thread  as noted in the Lab’s announcement.
