Hi Everyone,
For anyone who missed 'The League of Worlds Bring Your Own Grid 1 Workshop,'
on Oct. 27th in SL, you can catch the last half of the workshop on YouTube
in three 15 minute parts at:

Playlist: The League of Worlds: Bring your own Grid 1 Workshop:
http://www.youtube.com/user/HVXSilverstar#grid/user/240EFDEC8E52F023

Or the individual videos:
Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNPVIuw8DSg
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Deae6Du2l90
Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fexbaOJvkQ4

It is a mix of voice and chat.. mostly voice. So if you want to read the
text, it is best to view it at 720p on a really good connection.
I missed the first half of the session, so will look forward to the next
meeting.

All the best, Ben / HVX Silverstar in SL

> Invitation to a 1 hour workshop,
> *The League of Worlds Bring Your Own Grid 1*
>
> (and perhaps connect your OpenSim grid to the League of Worlds)
>
> *First a little history*
> The League of Virtual Worlds was founded in 2004 to discuss the use of
> simulations and virtual worlds in education. It met annually each
> October for 5 years, until its original purpose was overtaken by time.
> We began because virtuality was not on the agenda of any conferences
> that we knew about. By 2009 this was no longer true. It had become a
> mainstream staple at educational conferences, for which we were glad.
>
> *The new direction for the League of Worlds*
> Now however we can see a new and timely challenge: to establish LoW as a
> community of inquiry that seeks to explore simulation, virtuality and
> pedagogy within the context of OpenSim, by federating our OpenSim worlds
> into an actual League of Worlds, and by using that federation as a
> virtual laboratory for our ongoing inquiries across a diverse range of
> fields. In so doing we will find partners, contexts, content and
> resource-sharing for these endeavours.
>
> *The event*
> We are planning to hold *Bring Your Own Grid 1*, a League of Worlds
> one-hour in-world gathering on Wednesday, October 27 at 10.30 SL time,
> when we will explain what we mean in more detail, and invite others who
> share our vision to join us. If you wish to join, or to find out more,
> you are invited to attend.
>
> Confirmed attendees, so far, include:
>     * Scott Diener (Auckland University, New Zealand) of the New
> Zealand Virtual Worlds Grid
>     * John "Pathfinder" Lester (as himself), owns an OpenSim region on
> jokaydiaGrid
>     * Steve Bronack (Clemson University, South Carolina) of the
> Carolinas Virtual Worlds Consortium
>     * Owen Kelly (Arcada University, Helsinki) (new OpenSim grid under
> construction)
>     * Lindy McKeown (University of Southern Queensland) aka Decka Mah
> in Second Life (new OpenSim grid under construction)
>
> *Location*
> The gathering will be held on the island Terra Incognita in Second Life
> at http://slurl.com/secondlife/Terra%20incognita/157/107/33/
>
> Look for the signs at the landing point to the meeting in Spotter Square.
>
> Don't forget, its at Wednesday, October 27 at 10.30 SL time. Check your
> time at http://tinyurl.com/23zb8fw
