The second anniversary of the discovery of Nova Albion is March 23rd.

What are we going to do to celebrate?

Lure Magellen back with the promise that Cybin will finish his building. : P Actually I like it the way it is -- sculptural. And mine has lots of interior work yet to be done.

Hey, we could put something interesting on the map! You know how SteveR has built a floating monkey face that shows on the big map? Suppose each landowner builds a temporary sky decoration -- say a basic balloon shape with a face or logo or swirly pattern or whatever the person thinks is fun. Suddenly the map would show a festive display of balloons. To my knowledge that's never been done before in SL, so our display would show the rest of SL that Nova Albion is a grassroots community of creative people.

Osprey Therian has initiated a Nova Albion-themed photography contest during March in honor of the upcoming anniversary. Check out the notecard at the Photography Studio.

Teaser Ad For The Anniversary
03-16-2006 00:04
I'd like to place an ad at sluniverse.com (Snapzilla) to start spreading the word about the upcoming anniversary. Here is what I had in mind. Does anyone have any feedback on it?



I was thinking of having the clickthru be to a SLurl of the Nova Albion Infohub Landing Point in Miramare. We could start putting up some notices at the hub about any anniversary activities that folks have planned for those days.

Nova Albion Days?

The actual anniversary is on Thursday the 23rd. There could be a few neighborhood events the week leading up to the anniversary. I'm going to see if there is interest in having a short simple ceremony to mark the occasion on the 23rd (4:00pm?) and possibly again the following Saturday or Sunday, the 25th or 26th, at different times to accommodate different folks. Probably a half hour in length. Maybe we can get Magellan, and some of the other Lindens responsible for re-establishing the city, to make an appearance on the 23rd?

We don't have to have a HUGE extravaganza (unless there is interest). Maybe just something to mark the day.

Thanks,

Salazar

This is a great idea. I'm going to figure out something to put above the Brownstones in Grignano.

I'm still figuring out what exactly we'll be doing at The Brownstones in Grignano for the celebration. Probably make use of the empty land, currently reserved for the Nova Albion Museum of History and Antiquity, as some sort of party area. It's right at the SW corner of Grignano across from the bridge that goes to Sistiana.

But I definately want to have some sort of ceremony to mark the occasion at the new Infohub in the center of the city on the 23rd. I'm going to try and organize a work party this weekend to get some additional fun things installed at the hub (like the Sistiana Photobooth Traxx Hathor is working on) and get some more of the details finished up, like the landscaping around the Barcola wading pool and the dock area that spans Barcola and Sistiana.

Anniversary Preparation Update - March 18
03-18-2006 19:34
Okay everyone. I've set up six anniversary event posters at the Miramare landing point. One has Osprey Therian's Anniversary Photo Contest. Five are available. Please use a notecard dispenser, but no hovertext. If we get more than six city events for next week, we can change the configuration of the posters. Let me know if you need any help. The posters are set to share with the group.

Also, I've proceeded with the following two ads for sluniverse.com to promote the anniversary. They will show up on the main site and on Snapzilla and will run for seven days.

And, I've created a SLurl for the anniversary as well. It's in my signature.
