2018 BIZ: HG: EDU: Themed grids. A grid for each school, community, or business. A fit with HG and VPGs

Themed grids. A grid for each school, community, or business.  A fit with HG and VPGs. Themed grids flip the marketingNot “come into a 3D grid because you will like it.”But “come to this {school, community, business} because of what it offers.””And it offers this in 3D, right where you live–on your home computer.””Even better, you can try out a sample world right here on this web page.””Better than better, we are here to talk to you if you come to our Open Hours.”  Bringing OpenSim and web-worlds together: Web-world on the landing pageWhat changes with the flip?Your target market is not just people who want to try out virtual worlds.It is people who are looking for what you have to offer. A school offers education.  Studying in a virtual world is an option.  A model railroad community offers news and resources for model railroadersBuilding and marketing railroads in virtual worlds is a convenient option.How would a VPG help?VPG=Vitual Private GridA VPG uses a copy of the software running an existing grid.It has an independent web presence controlled by the VPG owner.The web presence can be on your website. You control the entry path.Its internal operations are isolated as with any other grid. The VPG owner needs only to manage the user-facing operations.The tech infrastructure is managed by the VPG vendor.********************************************More after the break*************************************************Metaverse events, recent and upcomingHYPERGRIDABLE grids open 24/7: Interactive spreadsheet for Hypergridders.Events on the Hypergrid: HYPEventsHypergrid DestinationsIMA Social Web and Virtual World Events, Music, and Meeting CalendarHYPERGRID EVENTSOpenSimWorld EventsEntertainment on the HypergridOpensim AAM Virtual PerformersPromotion for virtual worlds and everything in ’emSelby’s daily events and news collection:  Virtual worlds are real Comedy Videos from the virtual worldsWeb-world videosMetaverse places and activitiesList of Social VR/Virtual Worlds by Ryan SchultzSearch this blog with the search bar, upper left.Hypergrid Writer’s CommunityMetaverse Jobs; Job ListingsIMA projects3D WEBSITES A2Z3D web-worlds of the browser (G+ community) Web-worlds, 3D virtual worlds running in a browser.
