2017 WW: PEOPLE: More times when I may be in the nonprofit web world

More times when I may be in the nonprofit web world
I describe a plan that lets me be in a web-world to chat with visitors several times a week.  I am starting to test it to see if it works for me.
Web-world for nonprofits 
and public service organizations

  • Voice works here, at least if you are using the Chrome browser. 
  • Click the Mic (bottom line) to turn on voice.  
  • You can hear even if you do not speak.
  • Firefox and Edge may not work with voice until they are updated.  
  • Click here to visit my web world 
  • Enter as guest -- just pick your avatar and a nickname.  No registration.
  • I expect to be in that world weekdays, 10 to 10:30 am California time.
  • 3D web-worlds of the browser (G+ community)

Other times I may be in the web-world

  • Sundays 1 to 2 pm  (All times are California time zone)
  • Mondays 6 to 7 pm  
  • Thursdays 12 to 1 pm
  • Thursdays 5 to 6 pm 
  • Fridays 12 to 1 pm, 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm 
  • (More after the break, scroll down!)

Can I handle 2 worlds at once?

  • My adventures in virtual worlds take me to several regular meetings a week.
  • Conveniently, these meetings are on my computer.  
  • So it takes me less than 20 seconds to get there.  
  • I will usually be at my computer at meeting times.
  • Maybe I can also talk to people in my web-world.
  • Some of those meetings are mostly in typed text.  They go slow.  
  • I can probably talk to people in my web-world and follow the text in the meeting.  
  • If a meeting is in voice, I can probably still answer questions.  
  • But this is just a test.  In virtual worlds, even the failures are virtual.

With a little help from my friends

  • If people have questions, I don't have to know the answers.  
  • In each meeting I will have friends who know a lot more than I do.
  • I can pass on questions to them.  
  • Or get them to come into the web-world and explain things.
  • That is only about a twenty-second trip.  
  • And the travel is all by browser.    


  • To use voice, click the Mic button (bottom line)
  • If voice does not connect, click reset voice (panel, upper left).
  • Voice may not connect if you are in a virtual world with voice on there.
  • The bulletin board at one end of the seats may carry updating info.
  • To read the BB easily, click on it.
  • To sit. click the blue thing in the chair.  To stand, click STOP ANIMATION
  • To review local typed chat, click on the speech bubbles on the bottom line
  • Web links will appear in a distinct color.  
  • To open the linked page, click the speech bubbles, click the link.
  • To relog, click the circle graphic, upper right.
