Linden Lab® Introduces dio™: a New Shared Creative Space

Linden Lab, the makers of shared creative spaces including Second Life®, PatternsTM, and CreatorverseTM, today announced the open beta for dio, a new site that allows users to create, share, and explore interactive places. Though still in its early stages of development, dio is now open to users who request invites at

In dio, you create places by adding text, photos, videos, and interactive objects into interconnected ‘rooms’ that give spatial context to the content you share. You can keep your places private, share them with friends and family, or allow everyone to explore and enjoy them. Live and persistent chat allows you to socialize with other users as you discover and explore dio places together and see what those who came before you had to say. In the future, dio users will be able to monetize the dio places they create, enabling them to profit from their own creativity.

“dio is a new shared creative space on the web,” said Rod Humble, CEO of Linden Lab. “Based around the concept of linked spaces, dio makes it easy and fun to create or visit experiences of all kinds. dio is still in development, and we have deliberately kept the tools as broad as possible, but so far our testers have created a vast range of spaces, from wedding keepsakes, to house tours, to games, to rich media-linked chat rooms about sports and ancient history. I'm really looking forward to seeing what people will create now that dio is more widely available. One of the things that's made Second Life successful is that users are able to monetize their own creativity by selling their creations. Second Life’s economy was extremely robust with over $500 million worth of user-to-user transactions last year. With dio, we want to similarly empower creators by sharing ad revenue with them and ultimately allowing them to sell their creations, and our hope is that this will encourage the kind of incredible dedication and creativity we've seen with Second Life."

You can request an invite to the dio beta today at The site will be updated with new features, tools, and concepts every two weeks. A video introduction to dio and screenshots for press are available at:
