In 2002, Linden Lab was present at the DEMO Conference, an event where new and promising technologies are showcased. Using a slide-show of images (seen below), LL convinced the folks at DEMO to give them a 6-minute slot to launch SL to the world. LSL1 code was also part of this slide-show, showing that SL can be more than just a game, even though the slideshow itself may have presented SL as a more game-like world at the time.
- Forum Link: LSL1 code posted - keys for slideshow images found to be still in asset server (amazingly).
- Forum Link: Images of slideshow - Andrew Linden and Philip Linden give some background.
