[Announement] “Second Life shopping events as a phenomenon” – The Grid, Unraveled

SL shopping events as a phenomenon - The Grid, Unraveled

When: 2016/09/25, 11 AM SLT
Length: 1 hour
Hosted by: K.T. Burnett (KayT Resident)

We are discussing:
Second Life shopping events as a phenomenon

All the fashionistas of Second Life cannot stay indifferent to the multitude of shopping events that have absorbed the Grid – and the new ones keep appearing each month. Designers work day and night to bring in new apparel items in time for the events they participate in. Residents hardly keep up their Linden Dollars balance with all the new releases, exclusives, deals, that they cannot resist missing. The Second Life Destination Guide has a separate “Shopping Events” category now. How come they got so popular in such a short timespan? Is this what Second Life really needs? What purpose do shopping events serve for residents who choose to create them, participate in them and/or shop at them? Are there possible alternatives to shopping events to achieve the same goals they do, so we can have some variety on the fashion events field?

We will be having a panel of special guests who will share their experience on the field – and you, the audience, will be able to take part in the conversation via chat.

Cannot make it to the show? It will be recorded and posted on the YouTube Street Wear Live Channel, so you will not miss it.

So, mark September 25th on you calendar and join the discussion at the place where you will be heard!

The Grid, Unraveled Episode 1 - 1st hour

This Sunday has been truly one of a kind. Thank you very much, guests and audience, for all your input, your participation, for letting us into the insights of your profession, how you feel about it, what the issues of the clubbing and music entertainment industries are and how they are to be dealt with – this has been a very interesting and informative discussion. And, of course, thank you very much, Nick and Abbyrose (Street Wear Live production team), for making it possible! In a way, it was an experiment, and I cannot thank you enough for participating in it. For the first episode, it went very well!

We went completely off the script in this discussion, but that was the best thing that could happen – for it has allowed the discussion to get less formal, which, in turn, has allowed the topic to thrive freely. As every experiment ever, it obviously was not all the way perfect, but we will be playing with the format and getting better with each episode – I already am thinking of ways to establish better connection between the audience and the voice panel, and other ideas to improve everybody’s experience.

The Grid, Unraveled Episode 1 - 2nd hour

At the moment, Street Wear Live is planning to make The Grid, Unraveled a bi-monthly show (new discussion every two weeks on Sundays), so take your time in watching this episode, and the next discussion will take place and be filmed on Sunday, September 25th.
