Second Life

Second Life User Interface Design Presentations

July 22nd, 2:00 PM SLT

Contestants will have the chance to present their UI designs to the judges and parry questions from the incisive panel during an in-world event on July 22nd, 2:00 PM SLT. 800,000L in prizes will be awarded once the winners are selected.

The purpose of the design contest was to let the best and the brightest of the Grid put their minds to something they know well – the Second Life user interface and its many, um, features. The quality of the entries was incredible. Visit my previous post where you can link through to the full submissions, or for a quick reminder here’s a presentation I cobbled together:

As M Linden pointed out in yesterdays letter to SL residents:

We also launched a new initiative to completely redesign the viewer from top to bottom – recognizing that new users don’t need such a dizzying array of features, and experienced users, land and business owners and content creators need better tools that are more thoughtfully designed and organized for their needs. Everyone needs better inventory management and search is due for an overhaul. We hear you. We’re on it.

It’s my hope that the incredible efforts by the talented contestants will be at the very least useful to the Lab in understanding what a knowledgeable group sees as key issues and ideas related to the user interface.

Following the presentations by the contestants, I’ll be announcing further ways to participate in this amazing process of generating ideas and insights into how we can all help to make SL that much better.

DATE: July 22nd, 2:00 PM (1400h) SLT
