Open Simulator Community Conference & Parties! | Pirate's Atoll

Open Simulator Community Conference & Parties! | Pirate's Atoll | cool stuff from research | Scoop.it

If you were there, then you already know that the OSCC for 2014 was fantastic.  If you missed it, then most of the sessions are available by video recording. I am going to go back and watch the sessions I missed.  There were a few technical glitches with sound, media or access (I couldn’t get into the first session), but Fleep Tuque and the team got everything ironed out quickly, and most everything went off without a hitch. There was a fantastic party at the Speakeasy on LFgrid with DJ Walter Balazic, and then the party here at the Atoll went on for more than 6 hours! We had around 50 visitors to the Atoll, and had nearly 30 all at the same time at the peak of the party.
