Most of the adult-owned educational islands on the Second Life Teen Grid are closed access for individual schools, but there are two that consistently engage the local residents. We frequently write about Global Kids, but Eye4You Alliance has done some pretty amazing activities themselves! Eye4You ...

I logged into the Teen Grid this Saturday to attend a Machinima tools presentation by HVX Silverstar. Before I could teleport to Eye4You, I ran into a group of teens gathered on Global Kids island. Alex Harbinger was holding his monthly intern meeting, with this one being about the state of the Tee...
