Architecture Working Group
AWG's mission is to develop the protocols that will open up the Second Life Grid from something operated solely by Linden Lab to where others can run parts of the grid.
- Basic info here.
- Learn more about scope, timeframe, getting started, process and best practices in About AWG.
Formal meetings will likely be held 3-4 times/year and located in Second Life to facilitate broad participation. Meetings will be coordinated on SLDev.
