2017 OSHG: Road map to joining web-worlds to OpenSim

Road map to joining web-worlds to OpenSim
A road map tells you how you will get from where you are to where you want to go, noting the main intermediate milestones.  (A road map is not a timeline.) Here I note the major events I expect we will see along the way.

Drop by and let's talk

Metaverse events, current and upcoming


    How do web-worlds relate to the user-built virtual worlds?

    No technical connection, but strong people connection

    Coming soon: OAR to web-world
          Coming later, Kitely Market could connect to web worlds.
          • If there were enough web-worlds they could create a market for virtual goods.
          • Kitely Market could sell virtual goods to web worlds.  
          • Sure there are technical details to be worked out.  
          • Kitely has plenty of tech capability.
          • But they would not put an effort on that unless they see a market.
          • With Kitely Market, you could furnish a web-world quickly.

          Communities and grids use web-worlds for marketing

          • You can put your web-world on any web page
          • One web-world can offer teleports to other web-worlds.
          • I imagine a cooperative web-world, maybe set up by a grid.
          • One entrance, perhaps with links to other web-worlds in that grid.
          • Perhaps there would be hosts at the entrance part of the time.
          • Each community would host a web-marketing site. 
          • Built out of the best parts of the community grid.
          • The community site could offer videos or narrations.
          • The site might have a click for help button. 
          • Hosts could be available to tell people about the community.
          • And the big virtual worlds in the grid.  

          Web-worlds could manage download and registration in a grid

          • The site would offer a button to download and install the viewer.
          • Firestorm has already cut out some of the geekery on its installation.
          • A grid promotion site would have its own customized viewer
          • And registration fields easily accessed from the web-world. 
          • The customized viewer would already be preset for the grid.  
          • The grid could open immediately for the new person.  
          • While the person is still in the web-world.
