Remembering Kreechur

 

Kreechur1

Last week we lost one of long term staff members, Kreechur.
Kree was involved with NCI for many years performing multiple roles. Whether it was a creating and maintaining the systems we use around our areas, helping in group chat and Kuula or assisting staff with various projects they were working on, Kree was often there to lend a hand to both new residents and staff. He’ll be greatly missed by many here as a friend and supporter of NCI.
Friends and colleagues gathered at the weekend to share memories and celebrate his life. A permanent memorial will be placed in the park in Kuula but if you wish to visit the area set up in NCIsland we’ll keep it out for a few weeks.  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/NCIsland/51/170/21

Great work guys!

NCI at the Metaverse Live Music Expo

The Second Annual Metaverse Live Music Expo starts this week. More than 80 musicians will be playing live music over three days. If you haven’t experienced live music in Second Life before, this should be a great place to start.

Each performer has a kiosk set up in the circle surrounding the main stage so you can learn a bit about who will be performing and pick a time to visit then or just turn up any time between 9.30am and 10pm SLT Friday-Sunday and enjoy the show.
