2015 PEOPLE: STAGE: Entertainment on the Hypergrid, a G+ community

Entertainment on the Hypergrid, a G+ community
Since the Hypergrid is growing and the prospects for music and other entertainment on the Hypergrid may be growing, this community is needed to let everyone interested in entertainment on the Hypergrid to share information and ideas. I hope this place becomes one of the go-to places to find out what is happening in entertainment in virtual worlds. 

  • Musicians, agents, event and venue managers, fans, bloggers 
  • Promote upcoming events, calendars, CDs, web sites. Talk with fans 
  • Agents: recruit clients, promote your clients, look for venues.
  • Event and venue managers: Promote events, venues, calendars, call for performers
  • Radio steamers: Think of your radio stream as different kind of venue.
  • Fans: Tell about events you attended, post pictures, link to your posts
