Colonia Nova Opens!

Copyright 2006 - Brian Livingston

Colonia Nova – Earlier this evening, Moon Adament, Chair of the Sim Planning Committee announced the official opening of the newest region of the Confederation of Democratic Simulators, Colonia Nova. This project involved the dedication and effort of dozens of builders, planners, advisors, financiers, and other genuinely interested parties. Although not every build has been completed, the sim has been built enough to allow residents to start to move in and shape their new environment. Plans are underway for an opening celebration and details will be posted here as soon as they are available.

Crowdsourcing Conference in Colonia Nova

Gwyneth Llewelyn, in conjunction with the Kuurian Expedition in Second Life, will be hosting a symposium on Crowd Sourcing on Monday, November 13th, 2006, at 12:00 PM SLT. The following is an excerpt from Gwyneth’s announcement:

When a company decides that their own customers (or users) should be the ones submitting designs, code, content, documentation, to improve — or even to create — their products, this is called crowdsourcing, a buzzword coined by Wired Magazine’s Jeff Howe (who will be with us on stage) to describe a new model of companies that get free work from their users/customers.

The event will take place at the theater in Colonia Nova.

Colonia Nova Construction Underway

Members of the Sim Planning Committee (SPC) meeting Sunday announced the completion of the terraforming and parcelling of Colonia Nova, almost a week ahead of schedule. The completion of these sizeable tasks allows for a wide range of building projects to take place, from laying roads and infrastructure to designing and constructing insulae and villas. Members of the SPC are hoping to announce dates for the start of land sales and the official opening of Colonia Nova within the next few weeks, as some of the remaining neccessary projects progress.

Sim Planning Committee meetings are open to the public and all are invited to attend. Meetings are generally held every Sunday at 1 PM, SLT and are announced in the “Planning Colonia Nova” forum.

Proposal for a second sim for the Confederation of Democratic Simulators

The proponents of this project (Clarence Calliope, Diderot Mirabeau, Gwyneth Llewelyn, and Moon Adamant) have evaluated Neufreistadt’s major distinguishing features — in the terms of its originality as a working concept for establishing a place where people “live” in the environment of a city, with its unique architecture, its events, its landmarks, and a certain “atmosphere” — and are suggesting a possible way to expand the concept of Neufreistadt (a long-time project using an elected government as a means to both adapt to changes of membership over the time, as well as with members leaving and entering the group afresh) under the over-arching government of the Confederation of Democratic Simulators (CDS).
