The weather was really nice and sunny this past weekend, so I wandered around the city all day Saturday.  I love the beautiful street art you see all around Montreal.  Here are a few I stumbled upon.

I recently added  Pathlandia to this very useful online directory of hypergrid accessible regions.  You can also post events!.  Wizzy or Thirza, I think it would be great to include the Hypergrid Safari clubhouse and possible even post the safari events to the site.  Could get more attendees and attention!

These events just keep getting better and better.

I was recently interviewed by Draxtor on his highly informative and entertaining radio show “The Drax Files Radio Hour.”

Check out the full show and hear me chat about Second Life, Jibe, Unity, WigglePlanet, and the role of community development in multiuser virtual world platforms.

I just have to say that all the work folks here are doing is really inspiring and amazing.  Thank you thank you so much for preserving and sharing these wonderful creations.  Community driven efforts like this one gives me a lot of hope for the future of Opensim as a truly open Metaverse.
