Dorena's world

Dorena's world

How to get there

Travelling the Hypergrid is more of an adventure than I would like.  Not for me--I am old enough to be comfortable with frustration--but for my readers.  But I figure if I write about it, somebody will tell me about a better method that I should have already known.
Hypergrid TODO list: Develop an address protocol that works as SLurls do in Second Life.
Use world map to search with the line below and teleport there:

Find the tp to Dorenas world
  • The sign on the left will take you there.
  • 8002/Dorenas World/85/115/22
The tour danced
  • Dancing is nice, but it does not work for a blog.
I explored
Arcadia's Barrio
Many items are free to copy
Arcadia's playground
Across from the dance hall
This way to the subway
I hear that the sewer system is interesting
Leads to the sewer system
Is this Arcadia's work?
To the road less traveled
Into the sewer system
Somebody slept here
What's around that bend?
You come and find out.

The full tour may have lasted three hours with visits to other places.  I had to leave after an hour for another meeting

    Contests and dated calls/invitations

    The Journal of Virtual Studies currently has a call for papers open.  The journal is peer reviewed and focuses on the use of virtual spaces for knowledge immersion.  Do you work or research in Second Life,  OpenSim or any other virtual platform?  Have you been engaged in research, exploration or reflection when using MMPORG’s?  Have you discovered a virtual space with knowledge immersion possibilities or have you engaged in a fascinating new way to explore the virtual through any number of immersive online applications?    
    These and many other questions are explored by the JoVS.  The Fall 2014 issue is expected to publish in September.  For details, see here: Journal of Virtual Studies 
    The theme is 'TRANSCENDING BORDERS.' Artists & filmmakers can interpret the theme as they see fit. Whether transcending borders between time and space, past and present, one nation and another, one language and another, a culture or civilisation or any other of the innumerable borders that present themselves as we navigate our lives. You the artist... You the machinimatogrpher...You decide.
    Entries Close at Midnight SLT 31st October 2014. Winner will be announced in December 2014.   First entries 

    News, new TOS, Google and pseudonyms

    1. once you reach the Teravus landing point, if you hit teleport again it should take you directly to the Safari Clubhouse.
