WOW just WOW, we really do have some talented youth in the teen grid. YAY SL for giving them a platform to be so creative with.

There have been other IRC-SL relays, such as the system created by Masakazu Kojima for W-HAT and the bot-driven version created by the libsecondlife team.

The fun gals at W-hat have that too. :)

I have a great deal of respect for Katharine and her coding work - especially for someone so young - and this is likely the first IRC -> SL chatbridge on the teen grid. But it is NOT the first IRC to SL chatbridge by a long shot.

Ash Qin / Ash-Fox made an IRC -> SL chatbridge on the main grid long ago - I believe SL 1.9 (http://www.quickfox.net/services/slgateway). I have used this chatbridge personally for several one-time mixed reality events (most notably Living Game Worlds IV) and a number of small ongoing groups use it (Gimp Girl is one I know of for sure because I facilitate that, but there are others); Ash always wears one. If anyone gets the credit for being "first" it should be Ash.

In addition, Adam Frisby recently developed a slightly more robust solution for Open Sim: http://www.adamfrisby.com/blog/2009/05/adventures-in-text-only-opensim/.

>Katharine Berry will join Second Life's main grid in the next few months, and will bring this technology with her'.

If her name is not 'Katherine Linden' within a week of arriving on the main grid, I say we should storm the Linden offices with pitchforks and flaming torches;)

I'm with Extropia on this one. This is an extremely talented person who literally grew up with her hands in SL code. What an incredible asset she would be. The only stopping point I can see is that she is already working part time and going to school. High school. I'm willing to bet college is next. She might not have time for us for a few years.


I guess it's already been pointed out that this isn't the first IRC -> SL bridge. Here's a free one that I tested out on Coronaverse once:


They're also using these in Insilico and I'm sure lots of other places.

None of that is to distract from Katharine Berry, she always seems to work on interesting things. Kudos to everybody in SL who use it as a toolbox instead of just a 7-11 parking lot on a friday night.


^^^ I wrote Coronaverse when I really meant Corona Cay. I tested it on the island, not the podcast... dar....
