    In recent months many artists have worked diligently and completed their exhibitions. And now the time (25th September: 21:00 CET / 12:00 pm PST) has come: The Summer of Arts in 2015 will open the regions with their exhibitions and we will celebrate this with a grand opening.  Friends from all grids are invited to participate in the opening event. We will celebrate the opening with a party featuring Whirly Placebo's Live Music and DJ Pete Zachariah. But that will not be all, for two months you can expect readings in Both English and German, guided tours, live music and parties on the exhibition grounds. Stay tuned! :)

          G+ Communities & other groups

          15 largest G+ Communities on HG:  Maria's article  


                How this works

                This article will post on the Friday before the first and 15th of the month.  I will try to include an item about any event or offer I know about the day before posting.  To be included any notice must include the location, unambiguous date, and the reason(s) why people would want to attend.  If I don't think my readers will be interested, I will not post.

                Location: For SL, give the SLurl.  For Hypergrid, give the HG address in standard form:
                • <hg-address>:<hg-port>:[<region-name>]
                If you put the prefix http:// on it, I will remove it.  That prefix indicates a web link and causes the browser to show the expression as a clickable link, thus confusing people not already familiar with the oddities of virtual worlds.  Firestorm does not use the http:// for map search and may not know how to interpret it.  

                Date Include the date in California time.  Add any other times you wish but be clear about the locations. 

                Reasons: Think beyond your local community if you want to attract outsiders.  Think beyond words (especially beyond overused marketing expressions.)  Think of pictures, GIFs, and videos.  If you post a 5 minute video on YouTube well in advance of an interesting event, I will very likely embed it in an article.

                  The Hypergrid WIP Show

                  The Hypergrid WIP is a one hour "show & tell" of works in progress or recently completed. All builders from beginner to pro are invited.  Presentations are in voice and text.  For text presentations, best bring the text in a notecard and paste it into chat.  Voice presentations may be captured in video.  Stills and videos from the show may appear in this blog.
