guess what? today is OpenSim’s second birthday! that’s right it’s just two years old and already a pretty strong little (?) bugger. to quote the official OpenSim 2nd birthday page:
The consensus is that OpenSim was ‘born’ on Jan 29 2007, when Darren Guard (MW) made his prototypical c# 3D world server publicly available.
i became involved with OpenSim almost about a year ago: sean dague asked me whether i could help with trying to figure out why OpenSim on PowerPC was not quite working1, which i eventually did2 — and got hooked…
…since then i’ve been working on voice support, splitting the chat module, adding a couple of REST interface for regions, and have been heavily involved in IBM’s Sametime3D effort which extends IBM’s Sametime instant messaging product with the capability to extend a chat session into a 3D meeting space:
considering that it’s just two years since
…MW came on [#libsl] and said ‘I have a prototype for an c# SL server, but before I publish it I need somebody to log onto it to see if it supports multiple clients’… [OpenSim turns 2]
it is utterly amazing how far OpenSim has come already!
here’s to a brilliant future! to virtual world domination! ;-) happy birthday OpenSim!
