Hi All,
We at the *Nonprofit Commons*  <http://nonprofitcommons.org>are delighted
to welcome two innovators in the virtual world space this Friday, February
17, *Jon Brouchoud* of Arch Virtual <http://www.archvirtual.com/>and *Chris
Collins *of Tipodean <http://www.tipodean.com/> Technologies. They will
talk about the cool technologies they have developed to bring virtual
worlds to new audiences and markets, like a senior retirement community and
an Iowa city. Join us for this very interesting conversation about virtual
architecture, customer-created design, and virtual / real cities. That's
this Friday February 17, starting at 8:30am PT at the Nonprofit Commons
Amphitheater.
*More details....*
*Jon Brouchoud* is owner of Arch Virtual <http://www.archvirtual.com/>,
which specializes in architectural simulations and conceptual development
of realtime 3D environments. Jon has a Master's Degree and more than 10
years of experience working in the architecture and virtual worlds. *Chris
Collins* is the CEO and Founder of Tipodean
<http://www.tipodean.com/>Technologies,
a company focused on virtual technologies. Prior to founding Tipodean,
Chris worked at Linden Lab (creator of Second Life), where he co-started
the enterprise team.
They will introduce some of their recent projects, including
Customer-Created Design, where senior citizens were recently able to help
design their own retirement facility using Second Life as a realtime
collaboration tool, as well as Tipodean's 'Converter' technology that can
bring OpenSim content into Unity3D. They will also talk about a new
platform they teamed up to developed, called ArchTech
Engine<http://www.archtechengine.com/>,
which transforms buildings, cities and geography into realtime 3D
environments.
