The annual OpenSim community meetup is now in its second year and attracted 270+ registrations with 100+ avatars inworld during most of the day. Ramesh Ramloll presented on the latest iteration of the sim-authoring tool RezMela which now integrates with real world maps. Ghaelen DLareh and Ruby ODegee presented an enchanting holoscene incorporating a Non-Player Character (NPC) and recorded voice of the poet Yeats. SUNY Empire State College educators gave a fascinating presentation on how they use Kitely for a range of educational activities ranging from training in film direction to biology. The Avatar Repertory Theater is based on many grids but deserves a special mention for their wonderful vignette drawn from A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Although it was too late in the day for some, Ann Cudworth led a visit to her Kitely world which relates to the forthcoming and eagerly awaited book Extending Virtual World Design.
