Linden Labs, who run Second Life, love to put on a big event for Valentine’s Day each year and last year you could meet them on a special island as they gave away free virtual kisses. The Lindens are a nice bunch of people and I guess they are employed for their people skills with the residents of SL as well as their other talents in running the whole virtual program.
This year sees two heart shaped islands in the grid that have been set up especially for Valentines Day. They open on the 12th February through to the 14th February and they plan to give away even more kisses (with the help of some volunteers). You can take part in a scavenger hunt too. Brie Janick, London Director, told me that Virtual London is playing a part in the proceedings this year and all will be revealed when the time comes. You can read more about the event on the SecondLife.com pages.
