Lab Chat is the name of the new series aimed at providing Second Life users with the opportunity to have their questions put to Lab management and personnel.
The first such event, which was recorded and made available as a three-part video, took place on Thursday, November 19th, with guest Ebbe Altberg, CEO of Linden Lab. I have a full transcript of that event available, complete with audio of both the questions asked and Ebbe’s replies.
The second on the series have now been announced through the Lab Chat blog and via an official blog post from the Lab. It will take place on Thursday, January 21st, again at the Linden Endowment for the Arts Theatre, starting at 10:30 SLT.
Once again, the guest under the spotlight will be the Lab’s CEO, Ebbe Altberg.
As with the first event, people are being invited to submit questions via a Lab Chat forum thread they’d like to see asked during the show for consideration. The deadline for such questions is Friday, January 15th
Questions to be asked will be selected by members of the Lab Chat production team (of which I’m listed, although my role is focused on producing written transcripts of recordings, rather than being hands-on with the actual production). 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.
As per the first Lab Chat, I will (hopefully) be recording the event, and will certainly be providing a full transcript a few days after it has taken place.
