Virtual World Culture
I have a new store in OSGrid in Wright Plaza. It is a freebie store. I was fortunate enough to be given a storefront there on Friday. It carries over the same name I have used for all my virtual world ventures for the last 5 years, Casita Gaia.
Grand Opening this Tuesday 10 to 11a.m. PST. Yes, it is also at the time of the Summer Solstice. Fun, no?
This is why I like OSGrid. It is a small general purpose open source community. The gifting culture of freebies encourages sharing, CC licensing, and community development. It feels very much like Second Life® did when I joined it in 2006. I have my island, Virtuality, on that Grid. So the freebie store is not only a nice thing to do... it is also good advertising for my ventures on Virtuality.
