Thanks for a Fantastic SLCC 2011!

SLCC – Truly a Community Event!

Many of our organizers are still traveling and we’ve got a ton of emails, tweets, pictures, posts, videos and more to catch up on, but we wanted to send a huge thanks to everyone who participated in the Second Life Community Convention 2011 this year, whether you were in Oakland, in Second Life, or on the web!

Thank you for making this year’s convention a terrific success and for helping us connect the community no matter where they were – through Twitter and Plurk and in-world, the conversation extended far beyond the walls of the Oakland Marriott City Center and that’s what makes SLCC and the Second Life community something special.

We’ll be compiling all of the video and slide archives from our speakers over the next few days and hope to have that ready for you by the weekend, but in the meantime, you can catch up on some of the buzz in the metaverse about SLCC 2011 from attendees and others – spread the link love and thanks to all who covered the event!
