Meet us in SL, on Union Island, October 1st from 10 AM to 12 AM SLT – SL Time (6-7 PM London UK time)

Our island in the sun… Wed, 05 Mar 2008 13:23:52 +0000 Unionisland Republic Union Island

This great shot of Union Island is combination of the talents of Matthaios Aquacade of Citrus Virtual, who designed and built the island for us (more pics at her site), and Adam Soler of Lookr, who must have used the mother-of-all-Macs to zoom this far out and line up the photo so nicely. Kudos to both! If you have any snaps of Union Island or unionism in SL, we’d love to see them!
