My weekly inworld meetup group, SLbizNet, has been gathering every Saturday at noon SLT for many months. We’ve had lots of great sessions but now it’s time to change things up, so no more Saturdays for a while (at least, not for me; the other members may continue to meet regularly). I’ve proposed we focus on a special event: a cross-world expedition to another virtual world.
One of our members is a Java programmer and has been telling us for a long while about Open Sims and “other grids” – in fact, Jeff Barr of Amazon pointed me to a list of them here.
Wouldn’t it be fun if we gathered our SLbizNet group in SL, climbed aboard an airship or other vehicle, dematerialized and then teleported to another world? I’ve already been warned it won’t be as easy as it sounds for many reasons (SL objects aren’t portable, our avatars may not have the same appearance in the new world, etc.).
It all sounds like a fine challenge to me…
