The Hypergrid Welcome Center begins operation. 
The HG project.  BeatThis
Recently Tom Frost proposed the development of a Hypergrid Welcome Center (HWC).  To support that effort he created a Google+ community of the same name.  Here is a report of the first development resulting from that suggestion.  Isis Ophelia has built a sim, Arcana, to serve as a HG Welcome center.  The development is ongoing.  Isis would welcome donations of freebie content suitable for newcomers
