One Step Toward Interoperable Virtual Worlds

Linden Labs has successfully moved an SL avatar to OpenSim according to a post made earlier this month by Zha Ewery. Although the news was kept pretty low key, I can’t help but think this is the equivalent of what the first steps on the moon are for virtual worlds… being able to move from one platform to another.

Will it be common place, one day, for avatars to take vacations to grids on other platforms, or meet up with a friend on a different system? It is interesting to think about, and while I’m sure not everyone would have a need to do so, I can imagine many reasons when it would be desirable to be able to move so freely across worlds.
