The first OpenSimulator Community Conference for 2013 was a “terrific success apparently with more than 350 attendees from 45 unique grids visiting with over 1000+ commits to the core code. This year there will be hype about Oculus Rift and info about other virtual reality technologies. In recent weeks there have been load tests to ensure that any issues and bugs have been sorted out.
RFL of InWorldz reached the one million izzies mark last week which is incredible news and this marks a big step forward in trying to find a cure for cancer. Well done to all those that donated izzies and helped out to reach one million izzies for InWorldz. Woooooooot!!!!!!
As many know already back in 2013 Relay For Life of Second Life reached the $2,000,000 milestone for the American Cancer Society. Every year a new record is being set with history being made in Second Life and InWorldz.
The fifth annual OpenSim grid survey launched on Saturday 27th September 2014 via Hypergrid Business. The aim is for the OpenSim community to rank their grids and to see how they compare to other OpenSim grids. The results in previous years have been most interesting and fascinating indeed. This is a great time to find out about new grids on OpenSim and to find out which grids are doing really well in terms of popularity.

On 2nd September 2014 marked my 4th rezday on the grid of InWorldz and I’m really happy to reach this milestone. I have seen a lot of changes around InWorldz since 2010 some good and some awesome ones. InWorldz has grown so much during the past four years in terms of regions, active users and its great to see more events happening. I have to admit that the InWorldz community and founders are very friendly, caring and active around the grid.
This year InWorldz hit 100, 000 registered users, InWorldz turned five years old and now the third season of Relay For Life of InWorldz has started. Wooot!
Bring on 2015! :)
The good times during the past 4 years in snapshots!

September 3rd we turn four! Hard to believe but it has already been 4 years since we started developing viewers! First the popular Phoenix viewer and now of course the crazy popular Firestorm Viewer. Firestorm is by far the most popular viewer used in Second Life and we have you to thank for that! After all… we couldn’t have done it without your support and encouragement! So as a show of our appreciation and with what is becoming a bit of a tradition for us… we have partnered with a couple of content creators to bring you some really cool free gifts AND organized a Rockin anniversary party with Rockin entertainment!
