Join Us for Our Pre-Gallifrey 21 Second Life Meet Up
Whether you are attending Gallifrey 21 or not, you can join us at our Pre-Gallifrey 21 Second Life Meet Up.
Here's a chance to virtually meet up with those you might be meeting the following week at Gallifrey 2010 in Los Angeles. Compare notes, thoughts, and schedule details of the upcoming event. Even if you are not attending the convention, our seasonal meet ups are a fun and fantastic way to connect with other Doctor Who and Torchwood fans without even leaving the comfort of your own home. Each meet up has been grown larger and larger.
It doesn't matter where you live, there are flights to book, no train tickets to buy, no long car trips to endure… but there are TARDIS' to ride in Second Life! All you need is a broadband internet connection and reasonably current computer (Mac or Windows) to join us. The Second Life software is free to download and use.
Come and meet other fans like yourself on 20 February 2010. Stop by any time you like that day, though you will not want to miss the special events taking place that day starting at 1pm SLT (Second Life Time = Pacific time in the US) when Victor1st will be giving demonstrations of the TARDIS console. There are various Doctor Who and Torchwood simulations which many had not seen last time because they did not want to leave the party. So before the DJ and party begins, you now will have a chance to check out the various incarnations of the TARDIS console room, peruse the virtual Doctor Who museum, and more. Perhaps even visit the Torchwood Hub.
Then at 3pm to 6pm SLT the DJ and dancing begins. Join the fun.. it doesn't matter if you can dance in your first life or not, you will be able to do so in Second Life. Don't be shy, meet up with other Doctor Who: Podshock listeners, hosts, correspondents, regular contributors, Gallifreyan Embassy members, and Doctor Who and Torchwood fans.
It takes place in Katrina (Cardiff and the Doctor Who Experience) on Second Life like last time (clicking on the linked Katrina name will bring you to the location in Second Life). See the video below of Victor1st giving an introduction to Second Life and the land of Katrina.
Victor's previous video introduction (dating back to our August 2009 meet up):
Please note that this video above was prepared for our meet up last August. There are always improvements and changes taking place in Katrina where we hold our meet ups..
(You will need to use the Second Life client software available free for Mac or Windows. Although not required, a microphone and headphones helps as you can speak and interact with others without having to type things out).
Once again we thank Terry Lightfoot and Nik Hewitt along with Victor1st and HBK, for their continuing collective help and efforts putting together these amazing events for us on Second Life.
If you are going to Gallifrey 21 the following week, be sure to come by and say hi at our non-virtual reality meet up, our unofficial official unofficial Doctor Who: Podshock Meet and Greet on Thursday night the 25th of February in the hotel. Of course, don't forget our live on stage show recording Doctor Who: Podshock at Gallifrey 21 on Sunday, the 28th of February.
