OpenSim London Meetup Report February 2, 2010Posted by justincc in events, opensim, personal, secondlife, virtual-environments, virtual-worlds.
Hi folks. As many of you know, last Sunday (Tuesday 2nd Feb 2010) we had an OpenSim real-world meetup at The Jugged Hare in London. It was a really good event – lots of very interesting people came along and we had some great conversations about all kinds of OpenSim related topics – grids, development, education, applications – pretty much everything. Unfortunately, I had a problem with my camera but Tipton Cole of lovejoysim was able to take some photos (apologies in advance for the blurriness).
Here’s a real power discussion – core developers Darren Guard (OpenSim founder and consultant currently working for Rezzable) and Melanie Thielker of Careminster Limited and 3D Hosting finally meet face to face.
As usual I (on the left) look incredibly fat in photographs (not helped by the fact that I actually am too fat). Bob Wellman of PMGrid (only just visible facing the camera) and Kevin Buckley of Immersv join in the discussion.
And thanks to Peter, Aron, Deepwire, Dr Olinkha Gustafson-Pearce, SlimWarrior, Mal Burns, Will Jeffery (MD of Maverick Media) and everybody else who came along (please, please e-mail me if I accidentally left you out or mislinked to you). You guys really made it a successful event. We should definitely have another one, quite possibly in the second half of this year, if not sooner.
