Between 2010 and 2012 I had a lot of fun organizing and running the (HGAC) meetings
Those were the very early days of connectivity in , and things often went awry during our explorations.
We all helped each other out through crazy technical challenges and exciting adventures, but it was the community of wonderful people at these meetings that impressed and amazed me the most.
Time moved on and in 2012 I stopped organizing Hypergrid Adventurers Club meetings
Not because of any lack of interest in Opensim and the Hypergrid on my part
I’m still very excited about the future of Opensim and the Hypergrid
It was just that I felt the HGAC had run its course
Opensim was becoming much more stable and easier to use, hypergrid jumps were becoming very reliable, and directories of great places to explore were expanding (see and ).
Also, attendance was gradually declining, and other aspects of my life were getting busier, so I figured it was time to wind things down.
The Hypergrid Safari is a new group that runs weekly tours across Opensim
In their own words: I’ve been attending these trips and they’re fantastic.
The organizers are Thirza Ember, Fuschia Nightfire, Wizard Gynoid and Wizardoz Chrome.
I think all of them bring beautiful new perspectives to exploring the Hypergrid
in particular the perspectives of skilled content creators and innovative artists who have a long history of pioneering work in and other virtual worlds.
And everyone attending brings their own thoughtfulness and great sense of humor to the group.
Once again, it’s the community of people that impresses and amazes me the most.
