Backstory

For over a decade, iCohere has been helping nonprofit organizations and government agencies advance their missions through multi-day virtual conferences. Due to budget and staff limitations, smaller nonprofit service organizations often have not been able to provide their volunteers and public audiences with the benefits of a major virtual event. For this reason, in 2014 iCohere launched the Serving Those Who Serve Others grant program. Each year, the program provides pro-bono virtual conferences to two nonprofit service organizations, enabling these organizations to reach expanded national and global audiences.
In a collaborative process with iCohere , the selected organizations develop the content and handle the publicity and marketing of these multi-day events and iCohere provides the design and technology.

How to handle a Hypergrid address 

From any Hypergrid-enabled grid, paste the address into the address bar of Firestorm and press enter. Or paste it into the world map search bar of any viewer, search, and click Teleport when the destination is found. If it doesn't work, don't give up. Try again in couple of minutes.  Sometimes the first try fails (probably times out).  And try again a few hours later. Some hypergrid destinations are offline part of the day.
