Good news from Jay Jay Zifanwe, who's managed the University of Western Australia's five simulator-wide presence in Second Life for over seven years, which looked likely to disappear last month:
"An 11th hour reprieve," he says. "All of the five sims are alive through mid-2017 (in part thanks to a lot going on behind the scenes including SL residents making direct offers to UWA senior management to help keep the sims alive). While all five sims are still there, one of those has transferred ownership to the University of San Jose, although in operation will remain as it has been in the location it has been."
Wonderful (if temporary) reversal of fortune for Second Life's art scene, as UWA is one of its last prominent sponsors. Go here for more on this change on the official UWA in SL blog.
