For many years, former IBMer Justin Clark-Casey has been the eternally-youthful face of OpenSimulator development, the place where the buck stopped, and the president of the Overte Foundation which oversees OpenSim licensing issues.
Then, on Sunday, the Justin Era ended with a post on his blog, Everything that has a beginning has an end, in which he said that he will be significantly scaling back his work on OpenSim in order to focus on new projects...

"Nine years ago today, a rather geeky avatar with the name of Desmond Shang officially opened a sim called Caledon with much frivolity and festivities. It was different from other areas of Second Life..."
With the continued outage of OSGrid, the metaverse is doing it's best to accommodate displaced avatars. Much like the human counterparts who flee disasters, homeless OSG residents sought the nearest and most familiar port in a storm--Metropolis. As weeks of outage stretched into months of outage, as Metro's servers were pushed to the limit managing new members and expanding inventories, refugees sought alternative homes where they could begin rebuilding what they'd lost...
Interesting use of NPCs. Nara writes, "One of our favorite things to do at Nook Grid is make book boyz--NPC characters that were heroes in our novels--and set them up as dance partners at our First Friday book birthday parties each month. As you can imagine, we were all over Mata Hari's new dance system that allows us to deliver male and female characters as dance partners from the dance ball."
Kitley: We updated our system today with several new features. First, we vastly improved the ability to find and fix slow scripts; this has a big impact on world performance. We’ll contribute this feature to the OpenSim project soon. Next, we continued to improve support for items that were obtained in other grids. Finally, we added a few features that improve usability...
The Kitely Market gained almost 700 new listings this month, its biggest growth month since the market first launched two years ago. More than two-thirds of these listings were for exportable items, available for purchase on almost any hypergrid-enabled grid and some closed grids...

My watch shows 10.30 UST, time enough before the meeting with the officer. It was always my dream to be in the services of the "United Federation Starfleet" and now I am here at 3rdRock Grid on the region "Starfleet Astarios" one of the colonies within the Starfleet realm...

"...We had more than thirty avatars from eleven different grids joining us at the Clubhouse this week, which was officially called 'ContraptionFest' and this event looks like becoming a regular feature of the Safari, because it was thoroughly entertaining .."
I was on this safari - it was quite entertaining. Over three hours went very fast! Tons of great free things are at the Lani Mall on OSGrid and I am going back for more this week. Prax and I tested the all terrain vehicles that Thirza gave us when we got back to Kitely. They appear to work fine -- we have ODE physics enabled on our worlds in Kitely. I absolutely loved Joe Builder's Lost World which is at ground level below the 4-region build of the USS Enterprise.
