“With Second Life becoming integrated into more aspects of our Resident’s daily lives, we saw a need to expand the world beyond its borders, enabling constant connection regardless of location.”
Linden Labs Vice President – Joe Miller
SLim is a messaging client scaled to the massively multi-player world. It is the newest instant messaging and voice client that will let SL residents communicate with the Second Life world without the significant overhead of the full-blown Second Life clients. SLim is a discrete VoIP/IM client that is meant to run alongside the Second Life viewer. Proposed to be convenient is such a way that it can compliment onscreen interactions, or it can also communicate with others who are not in-world in Second Life.
