Press Release: Mole Day This Sunday
MOLE DAY COMING TO BAY CITY THIS FEBRUARY
Annual Event Honors the objects of the Linden Department of Public Works
BAY CITY, SL (27th January, 2020) - Every year, Second Life Residents meet to salute Second Life's favorite mammal, the Moles of the Linden Department of Public Works, and celebrate well over a decade of amazing projects built by these hardy Resident contractors.
Mole Day was initially honored in 2010 by Residents of Bay City, but happily welcomes all who appreciate the work the Moles have done to make the Second Life™ Grid better.
Held on the same day as Groundhog Day, this year’s annual Mole Day will again take place at the Bay City Fairgrounds February 2nd commencing at 11:00 a.m. SLT. The event will feature DJ GoSpeed of KONA stream followed by Wolfie Starfire performing live at 12:00 p.m. SLT.
"Moles" are members of The Linden Department of Public Works (LDPW). The LDPW is a program focused on improvements related to the experience of living on, or visiting the Linden Mainland. The LDPW organizes teams of Resident builders, artists, and scripters (the Moles!) to create new content on Linden Lab's behalf and to the benefit of all. These Residents have the last name “Mole.”
Moles essentially build all of the grid’s infrastructure: the public roads and railways, items in our coastal waterways and protected lands, and even larger scale projects like the Linden Homes regions, premium content and experiences, and much more.
Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab® and home to the Bay City Alliance. The Bay City Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote the Bay City regions of Second Life and provide a venue for Bay City Residents and other interested parties to socialize and network. It is now the largest group for Residents of Bay City.
it is likely that Moles, as well as Lindens who work with them, will be in attendance. It is, of course, the belief that if a Mole sees their shadow at Mole Day, then they happen to have advanced light as well as shadows enabled in their viewer.
