On Thursday June 28, the Yearly Kos in Second Life organizing team is thrilled to announce that Jesus's General, Christian, will be joining us at our weekly party. The party starts at 6pm Pacific Daylight Time at the Registration Center, with DJ CookieMaster playing your requests live.

JayAckroyd's diary

This is also another reminder that you can attend the conference virtually by signing up for YearlyKos in Second Life. We’ll have video of all the major sessions streamed in live to a virtual auditorium, where you and your fellow virtual attendees can watch, discuss and participate in Q&A sessions. We also expect to present some panel sessions, and to record interviews that will be broadcast when there is no live content to stream, as well as conduct some virtual panels.

There will be lots of venues for meetups and parties open 24 hours a day.
Second Life is a virtual reality three dimensional social space with over 7 million registered users, that is growing rapidly in popularity.

There is US$25 registration fee that goes entire to defraying the actual costs of acquiring the virtual land, paying for the video stream and other hard costs. The construction, promotion and staffing of YearlyKos in Second Life, like the rest of YearlyKos, is done entirely by volunteers.

We’re pushing hard to register everyone who wants to attend YKSL as soon as possible so that we can accurately assess capacity requirements. If your registration comes too late, we may not be able to accommodate you. So if you are thinking of signing up, stop thinking and do it. If you’ve signed up, but not paid, now the time the finish the registration process. And if you’ve been by to visit the Registration Center, we’ve sent you a reminder that time is getting short.

In addition to a weekly party every Thursday at Gina’s Place,we will also have musical performances, political comedy, interviews with YearlyKos panelists and plenty of chances to meet up with fellow Kossacks.

Here’s the weekly schedule so far:

Newbie Camp on Tuesdays

Here’s where people new to Second Life can learn more about moving around, modifying their appearance and communicating with their fellow avatars. Not to mention how to sit down IN a seat and not ON the chairback. The NOOB Camp sessions are at 6 PM SLT (PDT) and last for an hour.

Registration Drive Meetings right after Newbie Camp

>We’re looking for volunteers to help spread the word. We’ve found that most people still don’t know about this event, so we need to let the blogosphere know, so feel free to stay after Camp to provide suggestions on how to get the word out.<

Virtual Party ever Thursday

Just for fun, join your other virtual attendees, or anyone else who happens by for music, dancing and chit chat. We've set up Gina's Place right outside the Registration Center where DJ CookieMaster will cue up his tunes.

This will also give you a chance to sharpen your virtual social skills, and make the usual newbie mistakes, like inadvertent flying and accidentally sitting on your best buddy’s head before attending the conference. Best of all, you don’t have to shout to be heard over the music, and if its too techno for you, you can mute it entirely.

Also, time is running out to register early. The registration fee will go up to US$30 right after Thursday's party. The day after registration for YearlyKos closes, July 18, the registration fee goes up to US$35.

So register now. Or, if you are one of the hundred people who have signed up and haven't paid your registration fee, you only have until Thursday before the price goes up.

So now’s the time! Sign up. Show up for the pre-convention events, which I will continue to announce in diaries. If you’re an experienced Second Lifer, volunteer to help your less experienced Kossacks by contacting Tom Ballantyne at careerdoctor AT or IM IF Mastroianni inworld.

Come by this Thursday!

It will be a blast!!
