Last night over 100 avatars in Second Life and 60 people in San Francisco gathered to celebrate the opening of the Nonprofit Commons in Second Life.

Speakers included Anshe Chung/Ailin Graef (the world's first virtual millionaire who donated the space for the NPC), Glitteractica Cookie/Susan Tenby of TechSoup (the NPC Team Leader), Jeska Linden/Jeska Dzwigalski (Community Manager of Linden Lab), In Kenzo/Evonne Heyning (Creative Director at, and Coughran Mayo/Dick Dillon (the NPC Main Tenant Contact).

You can see tons of photos from the virtual event (including swing dancing!) here on Flickr and a few photos from the real life event here.

Let us know about other photos, blog posts, audio, and video recordings from the event in the comments. Thanks!
