Remembering Soliel on Her Rezday

Janet Wright - Soliel Snook

On May 12, 2007, Janet Wright, an Amer­i­can expat liv­ing in Scot­land decid­ed to check out the vir­tu­al world of Sec­ond Life. It was on that day that she cre­at­ed the avatar “Soliel Snook” and unknow­ing­ly began an adven­ture that would con­tin­ue for the rest of her life. She became an expert 3D con­tent cre­ator, a region design­er-own­er and part of the team at an Inter­net radio sta­tion, Radio Riel.

In Sec­ond Life, the date of the day that you join is logged in your avatar’s pro­file. Sec­ond Life res­i­dents refer to that join­ing-date as a “rez­day”, which is essen­tial­ly your avatar’s birth­day. Sec­ond Life res­i­dents cel­e­brate their rez­days just as peo­ple in the phys­i­cal world cel­e­brate their birth­days. We cel­e­brat­ed many of Soliel’s rez­days over the years. Last year we cel­e­brat­ed her life in a memo­r­i­al ser­vice on May 12, 2015 after she passed away on April 24.

Today, May 12, 2016 is Soliel’s 9th rez­day, and in hon­or of this we are re-broad­cast­ing the pro­grams that Gabrielle Riel played for her 1st, 6th and 7th rez­days. Tune in at the fol­low­ing times to lis­ten:
