opensim2014

Just got of the grid and thinking about all the stuff I have learned from the last two days. I have to say I am feeling a lot of mixed feelings. The conference is of course a success. TY guys well done.

But listening to Philip and the new tech developments I am not that sure about the evolution of Opensim. It is a big and complicated nest of code guarded by very few people. Can it change enough to be relevant in a few years? The new Second life and I suppose there will be a few new worlds will make it even more difficult to be something to spend time running and developing. On the other hand I see a lot of dedicated people using Opensim for business and recreation.

My artist me say that this is a great platform for different art projects but my CEO of 2worlds2go say maybe to do something else. I did think that I would come out of the conference inspired and full of energy to create more stuff on my own grid. But instead I just feel conflicted.

One big thing is the Oculus rift. I know it really works best in Second life and Opensim but I have this strange feeling it will not be the game changer people think.. A lot of talk about it but nobody really used it. Its like a great idea, but only on paper.

I am going to get some sleep it is late in Sweden and see if I feel the same way tomorrow. I am sad to say I think I will do so. It is the future of Opensim and Second life that bothers me not the fantastic and great Opensim conference that was really fun. That’s one good thing.

It have been really good and is not over yet. Try to stay up for a few hours more. Of course Philips keynote was a eye opener. It is like where do we go from here. Loved the Avatars face animations in real time.

Some minor problems with the tech as at all RL conferences but that is normal. Little bit disappointed about that nobody talks about the very world driving topic of SEX . It did probably build Second life in the beginning. Somebody should talk about it.

Been a good day any away.
