SL's Spaceflight Museum Returned to the Grid After Community Outcry & Linden Intervention
Click here for a direct teleport to Spaceport Alpha, an entry point to the International Spaceflight Museum, because it is now once again back in Second Life. This after the sims were put in limbo due to various reasons. But thanks to "the community response in the blogosphere, and the rational reaction of a higher-up Linden," as ISM's Katherine "Kat Lemieux" Prawl puts it, the museum was quickly returned to the grid last night.
Now, Kat tells me, the hard part begins:
"It feels very good, if a little intimidating," she says. "There's a lot of things we need to do, organizationally and 'physically', including new exhibits. I'm a little apprehensive about getting back into the swing of things to the detriment of my first life, but it's a good feeling to have the results of all those years of work back in the light of day."
So good news for ISM and its many supporters, and I'm glad this blog and others helped raise awareness before the Museum became permanently lost. At the same time, it's also true that other SL sims are in similar jeopardy for reasons of their own, and a community outcry may not always be there for a last-minute intercession.
