Chief Executive Officer
As 2020 draws to a close, it is with delight and frank surprise that we note that - despite the leadership offered by our respective governments - humanity is still here.
Similarly, notwithstanding the guidance of Linden Lab, as we publish our fourteenth Bright Corporation Xmas Greeting Thingy, Second Life is too.
So now is a time to celebrate. May every bell, on every church tower and every nipple clamp, ring out the news. We survive!
As ever, the Bright Xmas Greeting Thingy® is a card containing a slideshow of 24 images, and is available in two flavours:
The "general" captures images of people celebrating Xmas in 23 places around the earth, and one off it.
The "adult" flavour captures the people themselves: in ropes, cuffs, and festive clothing.
We try to get cards to all our friends and customers, but if we missed you, we're sorry: do please collect one. The general is available at the , and the adult at the .
From everyone at the Bright Corporation, may we wish you a very Merry Xmas, and, as ever, a Bright New Year!
On this momentous day in US politics, the Bright Corporation wish to offer their passionate support to whichever candidate you are supporting.
Though some might hesitate before publically alienating supporters of the other guy, fearing that it might hurt their sales, we felt that this was a time for courage.
So go out and vote, and here's hoping our guy wins. And the other guy doesn't.
And if he does, why not celebrate by visiting the Bright Megashop and treating yourself to some of Second Life's loveliest things?
On the other hand, if he doesn't, why not console yourself with a little me-time shopping at the Bright Megashop?
I am Shan Bright, and I appove this message.
The is the natural home of Second Life's most bosomy, perfectly made up, latex coated, and gigglingly anticipative sissies. The air is 47% hairspray, and the combined Avatar Complexity Rating has crashed graphics cards better than yours.
This fondant fancy of an adult venue was created by the utterly fabulous Vanessa 'Bubbles' von Piggen (hypnoslave.kit), and we were delighted to learn she has installed a Bright Hypnocage in the Institute's main building, by the square.
Go visit. If you haven't slipped into the Pink, you haven't second lived, darling.
Nothing to do with Bright this time - just a piece of interesting news we wished to pass on to those of our readers lovely enough to create art within Second Life for the rest of us.
In Linden Lab's official Featured News blog, an update by Brett Linden dated the 11th of September accounces a Second Life Endowment for the Arts (SLEA), to be opened to the public in January 2021.
"At the heart of the SLEA presence in Second Life will be a new central landing and information hub featuring a teleport station that will help visitors easily discover current exhibitions, as well as a public park, “art challenge corner,” arts education center and SLEA Theater."
Artists, thank you for doing what you do. Click here and make sure Linden Lab follow through in helping you as they should.
We were delighted to hear from owner Jenny B Rose (JennyBean201) that the villa at has now been stocked with toys from the Bright BDSM Toys collection.
The Secret Rose is the perfect Second Life holiday destination for lovers of sand, sea, and sadomasochism. Idyllic beaches surround a beautiful village, and the place is worth a visit for the atmosphere and architecture alone.
Unlike most tourist destinations, there is no gift shop. But they do hold regular auctions at which you might buy yourself a consenting slave. Or sell yourself as one.
Meet Pixeleen: the gorgeously bouncy and utterly indefagitable animated dancer who could be adding to the atmosphere at your club, store, or bedroom. She doesn't judge: she just wants to dance.
Pixeleen is available free from the , and has already been sent out to our usergroup.
For more information about her, click here. And if you'd like to take up free membership of our usergroup, and receive all such freebies the day they are released, click here.
Shout out to the lovely JaneHappy, and her always busy and frankly alarmingly laissez-faire , where submissive bunnies go to cross the road when they want to be run over.
Jane has now installed there the Bright Hypnocage, and the Bright BDSM Toys: both recently announced on this blog.
With its many thousands of visitors, the venue is partially funded by revenue from the Bright Advertising Boards we helped Jane install some years ago: and we are proud to be part it.
The Playground might best be compared to Hieronymus Bosch's paintings of Hell, but populated entirely by people who like that kind of thing.
Join them. Plan to stay for longer than you'd planned.
Are Second Life avatars standing further apart as their users try to avoid being infected with COVID-19?
It's hard to imagine this kind of weapons-grade idiocy might be possible, and yet there are people who do think a virus can be spread by 5G telecoms installations: so if there is a lesson here, it is never to underestimate the power of human stupidity.
This cry of despair was prompted by yet another report of arson against a cell phone tower by some anti-sanity militia, and the need to create a tenuous link to the release of a product upgrade to the Bright Chat Relay.
Extra points for the mask not covering her nose.
In Second Life, avatars more than 20m apart cannot hear each other. The Bright Chat Relay allows you to install microphones around your venue, and relay all the chat they pick up to those outside this range. As a result, everyone can talk to everyone - even while social distancing in antivax tees and tin foil hats.
This product has been popular at many large SL venues: improving the buzz by letting lots of visitors talk to each other, or carrying public announcements, or letting DJ's efficiently address an entire nightclub-full of single ladies.
The new version released today eliminates the problem that, by repeating chat publically, those close enough to the original speaker may hear it twice. By a new and clever magic, chat is relayed only to people who wouldn't otherwise have heard it. This eliminates the greatest problem such systems have faced in the past. Echo. Echo.
It is also easier to install, more configurable, generally sexier, and for the evidentially-challenged, certified entirely free of virus-causing 5G equipment, chemtrail generators, or Illuminati mind control devices.
(For more information about the product, written in less of a temper, click here.)
Anyone who claims that art can lift the soul more than drugs has clearly never tried drugs. But there's no reason you can't enjoy both.
We visited the wonderful collection of images at pixabay.com and searched for trippy, groovy, funky, and various other corduroy covered words, and collected the best of the resulting weapons-grade psychadelia in this collection of 25 prints, all in 1 prim, copyable, slideshow capable, menu-driven frames.
The Bright Box of Trippy Art is available free from the , and has already been sent out to all members of our usergroup.
For more information about the collection, click here. And if you'd like to take up free membership of our usergroup, and receive all such freebies the day they are released, click here. It's just like... wow, man.
As people are divided by "social distancing", there has never been a greater need for a virtual space in which they can meet, relax, talk, and chain each other to things.
We are therefore proud to announce the opening of the Bright Dungeon within the grounds of the Bright Sandbox.
Floating some 4km above the sandbox, this modern, open-plan torture space combines the ergonomic comfort and style of an Apple showroom with a depravity of art and function which will get you thrown out of even the most tolerant theistic religion.
Come and play with the recently released Bright BDSM Toys and the Bright HypnoCage (see below) - and either bring a friend, or find a new one already handily secured in place.
(For more information about the Bright Dungeon, and the Bright Sandbox in which it can be found, click here.)
Give people anonymity, physical safety, and freedom from social cant and hypocrisy, and you get Second Life: a world in which one third of the population is leading the other two-thirds on leashes.
Consensual power exchange, for fun, experimentation, pleasure, and more fun, is a visible and everyday fact of life in the virtual world, and even those residents who loudly protest that no one should be enjoying it have alts who nevertheless do.
We at Bright have always been proud to support the SL BDSM community, and are delighted to announce a new range of Bright BDSM Toys: a collection of 16 bondage toys with full RLV support, locking, timers, forced sitting, Lockguard chain support, texture-control menus, access control, and much much more: an entire dungeon in a box.
Whether you run an adult venue, or are looking for toys to play with at home, or simply wish to examine these toys to see how thoroughly you disapprove of them, you want the Bright BDSM Toys.
Because Mistress Bright says so.

That any human being's rights or treatment should not be affected by the colour of their skin - or by their gender, sexuality, nationality, language, age, or other fact of their lives outside their own actions - is such an obvious truth that it is depressing anyone should have to protest to assert it. And yet, throughout history, we have had to.
All of us here at Bright wish to express our support to those doing so now.
Linden Lab themselves - creators of Second Life - have also expressed support. Click here to read their statement, and information about related in-world events.
One of the many odd things we learn from Second Life is that the ability to create things with our minds can make life complicated. If you have teleported to, say, a secluded beach, only to find yourself materialising inside a 20m tall SpongeBob SquarePants whimsically left by some previous sunbather, you'll understand.
To prevent such chaos, most sites simply don't allow visitors to rez.
But what if you need to allow rezzing at your site, while keeping just particular spaces clear of foreign objects?
This is what the Bright Litter Returner makes possible.
Want to open a art gallery in the sky above your sandbox, and keep it free of litter - while still allowing residents to build on the ground below? Tell the system the X/Y/Z coordinates of the block of space you wish to keep clear, and who should be allowed to rez there, and anything rezzed by anyone else within that protected zone will be returned to them.
Stop thinking about my squeezy body.So instead of having to divide parcels using crude ground borders, you can define spaces anywhere - on the ground or in the sky - with finely tuned rezzing rights. Very cool.
(If you're still thinking about what it might be like to be trapped within the bouncy, squeezy body of a huge SpongeBob SquarePants, as he smiles inanely and stares unblinkingly into the sky, please pull yourself together, read this blog post again, and pay attention this time.)

You are feeling very sleepy.
With each word you read, you feel soothed. Calmed. Relaxed.
You are finding Bright products more and more beautiful. The quality of their design delights you. The burgeoning feature sets excite you. The ruthlessly manipulative marketing leaves you feeling pleasantly ravished.
You want to buy the Bright HypnoCage.
The Bright HypnoCage subjects you to an intense, hypnotic program of swirling, animated, floating images, alluring human voices and strange sounds, and suggestive, seductive messages.
It comes complete with 9 programs: eight adult themes (inlcuding bdsm, femdom, sissies, and human dolls), and the LSD inspired experience called "Trippy!".
Enjoy hypnosis yourself, bend the minds of your soon-to-be-consensual human toys, or rez HypnoCages at your venue to attract curious visitors... and keep them there.
You want one.
You want it now.
You want one for a friend too.
When I snap my fingers, you will wake up feeling refreshed, happy, and ready to shop.

In the improbable event that purchasing and enjoying fabulous Bright products should leave a gap in your Second Life, we'd like to recommend a visit to the Fantasy Faire, which opens today.
"Celebrating its twelfth year, Fantasy Faire 2020 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, role-players and performers in the virtual world. From Thursday, April 23 to Sunday May 10, treat yourself to shopping, dance and theater performances, DJ parties, auctions, questing, our Literary Festival, fantasy art, events and role-playing as thousands of Second Life residents and creators bring their own visions together to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer."
Art, fantasy, magic, and progress towards a cure for cancer. Worth taking a short break from shopping to support.
A short one.

In May last year, we released the Bright Text Screen: an amazing device which could display instantly updatable text in Second Life.
We are proud to announce an updated version with a new, mesh design, which is 100% compatible with the original, but halves the land impact (LI) of any given size of text screen.
Each point of land impact now allows you to display another 10 characters!
It was already wonderful.
It could now be too sexy for Second Life.
If you run any kind of public venue, you need one. It is the best and most natural way to communicate with your visitors, providing live, changing information, announcements, and interactive help. For more information, click here!
As society collapses around us, and humanity is hunted by a tiny, ruthless, molecular killer (display name CoronaVirus, user name
COVID-19), it would be wildly inappropriate not to laugh like a woman putting down her joint only to discover she's forgotten how to unwrap Mars Bars.
So while brave, hard-working people are naturally distracted by the struggle to provide food, medical care, and the necessities of life in a world made chaos, the rest of us must focus on the vital work of creating darkly amusing absurdities.
The Bright Corporation has taken up the challenge by producing the entirely pointless Bright Mask, an anti-airborne infection medical mask to protect your avatar in a virtual world without infection, or indeed air. But it does look a bit sexy, so there's that.
Collect yours at the .
In RL, on the other hand, if you need advice, stop reading the words of a woman who has given up the fight against retail packaging and is now biting through the wrapper, and go instead to the sites of the World Health Organisation (WHO), or the British National Health Service (NHS), or the US Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Good luck to us all.
