The oldest object presented in the research blog at present is: 'Coffee Table, Glass & Steel', created by Alberto Linden on Tuesday, October 8, 2002 at 11:56:19 pm. It was found by Pitollus Swindlehurst on November 16, 2009 on the island 'The Hospital'.
I've never dived very deeply into Second Life, probably because it reminds me of my work on The Sims Online--a project which proved very frustrating.
That being said, The Last Days of Second Life has an interesting competition going on:
The literary research project "The Last Days of Second Life" will reward the finder of the oldest existing object in Second Life with 25,000 Linden Dollars. The project is based on the extremely audacious assertion of the researcher Pitollus Swindlehurst, who boasted that he had already found the oldest object: "Coffee Table, Glass & Steel", created by Alberto Linden on Tuesday, October 8, 2002 at 11:56:19 pm. Late in the wee hours of the morning of a party, the research leader Muji Zapedzki [aka Susanne Berkenheger] characterized this assertion as "ridiculous". At present, she is betting all her belongings to disprove this claim.
The deadline is January 31, 2010 (CET), that is: January 31, 2010, 3 pm (PST). The winner will be announced on the blog www.the-last-days-of-second-life.de. He or she will be able to blow the prize money from the middle of February onward.
