Between OpenSim and Second Life - IBM take the lead

Graham passed this link onto me:

It looks like IBM will be hosting their own ring-fenced sims on their own servers, but with access to Linden Lab's central services. This will be a good test of the promised open-sourcing of the SL server software. Our embryonic ambitions for JISC to create a UK educational grid in the future will be informed by this project. In the meantime, by investigating both OpenSim and Second Life, we can explore the issues that will become increasingly important as the technology matures.
