A small step for an avatar, a gigant step for Virtual Worlds


"Neil Armstrong", the first Avatar who leaves his footprints on the opensim-virtual satellite.

It’s an important first step toward enabling avatars to pass freely between virtual worlds, something we’ve been working toward publicly since the formation of the Architecture Working Group in September 2007.
