So the conference is over.After listening to cute stuff, tech stuff and mind blowing stuff. What to bring home?
The conference itself? It is not the same to be there as it is listening to a stream. You can comment, wooot things and generally be there. The feeling is different and that’s a good thing. Virtual world actually works. At lest for me and as we heard for about 40% of the rest of the population.
A side from the tech stuff we also have another thing in common. English. We can talk and listen to each other. English is not my first language so I do not care if I sometimes make a few mistakes. I can communicate. That’s the thing.
Listening to Pathfinder
The tech stuff worked aside from some small glitches but who have been to a conference without tech problems. It is a part of the package, it is ok when people are nice about it and everybody been really nice.
I wanted to listen to as much as I could. I heard about the business side, learning, tech, simulating cities and military. Some more philosophical talks on why we use the metaverse (yes I used that word). But I missed my special interest . Art. Maybe I have to do that one myself for another year.
I liked that many talks was nice to Second life. There is really no competition. I think Second life and Opensim are different sides on the same coin. But Linden lab is a company and need a good business idea, As many Opensim grid owners, money is needed to run the worlds we visit. But I wonder if Linden lab and Second life will be around in 10 years. I think Opensim will. I visited Active worlds some time ago, First time I visited I used a modem and the internet was just starting up. It shows that the Open source idea could help software to survive and evolve. There may be another conference in 10 years.
Never heard a thing about Cloud party. I think people from Cloud party and Linden lab should be invited would be interesting to hear what they have to say. But maybe they do not want to.
There was a lot of talk about the Hypergrid and of course the Hypergrid I seriously cool. This is a game changer. I want to own my stuff on my computer not I some other peoples servers. I think I have to put some of the dev grid on the Hypergrid. Thinking.
So in the true spirit of the Hypergrid I went over to the OSgrid for some official after party. Listened to live music and chatting away.People where coming and going and someone said that we where 36 at most moving around, dancing and no chat lag. Just had to ask. We were running on a 4 core Windows server, with 2 gb of ram I think. I do not really remember because it was getting late and I am a old person.
So the impression that stands out is that it really worked well. Maybe it is time to go to Beta. LOL.
We joined in from all over the world under a common interest and made it something to really remember.
