As luckily almost everyone is already bored by beach sceneries with palms and Tiki huts it looks as if SL starts to be a real Mecca for those who are addicted to interior design. In case you have not yet heard about the book "INSPIRATION - SL Interior Forecast", you definitely should have a look in the blog or take an inworld copy for free here. Just click the Inspiration subscriber board. When Pitsch Parx started the project I must confess that I was a bit sceptical. The concept seemed to me to close to rl books. Pitsch gathered quite a few of highly talented people in this field and the result is totally convincing. Hopefully this book will stay as seasonal publication. It really inspires!
Wendy Xeno, the creator of Humanoid, Misali and Neva River, build a set up together with Neva Crystall for the launch party. From her group note I got that the sim is still visible for a week. A great place to enjoy and take pics.
