Last Night at aloft

On behalf of all of us at aloft hotels, ElectricArtists, and Electric Sheep, we'd like to thank everyone for coming out last night to the official Grand Opening of the virtual aloft hotel in Second Life. We'd especially like to thank Ben Folds and SONY BMG for making the night super special.

Unfortunately, due to the technical limitations of Second Life, it wasn't possible to accommodate everyone who wanted to attend, so we thank all of you for who wanted to attend but couldn't, for understanding.

Stay tuned for more events. We're planning a big Halloween blow-out at the hotel which should be a lot of fun. If you've missed the event, here's some photos of what went down...

(For those who attended last night, let us know what you thought by posting a comment....)

It was a great night!. It was totally crazy and not what I expected, a lot of fun. It was great to hear Ben and it seemed like he had a blast. I also really enjoyed the listening stations set up on Media Island, fantastic job!

Argh. I missed it, I came online a bit too late and it was already over... I'm hoping someone made some machinima of the event to be able to catch some of it at least...
