“The future of the internet is in three-dimensional worlds,” said Thielker. “Hypergrid is an integral part of it and we core developers are avidly working on improving content protection to make hypergrid safe and acceptable for creators.”

    Interesting how there is NO Post Conference write up’s, reviews, feedback or articles in the general blog-sphere, let alone here in HG Business.

  2. I’ve been at a tech conference since Monday morning — had to pack right after end of OSCC then fly out to Chicago. I’ve got a bunch of post-conference stories to post, I promise!

    I guess nobody else donated to or sponsored this event? Maybe everyone else who sponsored this next year and put THEIR money and time and effort into it shouldn’t sponsor it anymore based on what you just printed here, I wouldn’t blame them if they didn’t. This is POOR reporting as usual by HG Biz.

    • Plenty of other people donated, but Avination sent me a press release. I’ll be doing more write-ups later, but, as I mentioned in a comment below, I’m on the road right now and haven’t had a chance to catch up!

      Please feel free to send in any other press releases, or write-ups, or anything else and I’ll get them posted as soon as I can. In addition, if anyone would like to volunteer with the managing and editing, I’d love to hear from you!

      As the economy recovers my regular day job is taking up more and more of my time, while simultaneously more and more stuff is happening in OpenSim.

      Thanks!
