2017 OSHG: The OSHG project joins forces with IMA

The OSHG project joins forces with IMA

The OSHG project started by Selby Evans under New Media Arts is merging with the newly formed organization, Infinite Metaverse Alliance (IMA).  Selby will continue to work on the project objectives as an adviser to IMA.  IMA is welcoming new members and seeking their advice. 

  • Reminder: OSHG stands for OpenSimulator-HyperGrid. 
  • The OSHG project was started by New Media Arts 
  • in an effort to speed advances in OpenSim and the hypergrid.   
  • HGProjects and the OSHG initiative. Summary, Fall 2016
  • Infinite Metaverse Alliance (IMA) has similar objectives and more resources, 
  • So it made good sense to join with them 
  • I will continue to report on the OSHG objectives.
  • And I will now report on other developments in IMA. 
  • Full disclosure: I will be working with IMA as an adviser and promoter.
  • I am an investor and could benefit financially if the business side becomes profitable
  • This is not a business investment.  I would only recommend it to support OpenSim. 

You can be come a social member of IMA free. Just do any one of these things
