“Life 2.0” Documentary

PalmStar Entertainment and Andrew Lauren Productions did announce that “Life 2.0” (, directed by Jason Spingarn-Koff, has been accepted into the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. This film is a documentary about the impact of virtual communities on the world.

While most of the publications about virtual worlds focus on technology and business, this documentary puts a spotlight on the social and personal impacts virtual world communities can have on people.

“This feature length documentary follows a group of people whose lives are dramatically transformed by a virtual world, Second Life – reshaping relationships, identities, and ultimately the very notion of reality.”

Hosted Regions in OSGrid

My company Dreamland Metaverse offers high quality regions in OSGrid and standalone regions based on open source OpenSim virtual world servers. Our goal is to provide our renters a good service for a fair price.

Since over 1.5 years our regions in OSGrid are known for their high reliability, using the latest stable OpenSim versions. Our good references show, that we are able to maintain high service quality.

Many residents have chosen our regions (like the shopping mall regions Samsara and Snoopies) as their login locations, because our regions run more reliably than the main OSGrid plazas.

Because we focus on quality, we have chosen the following server configuration:

  • We focus on best quality regions for OSGrid and as standalone regions
  • Dedicated, high performance Intel Quad-Core Xeon servers optimized for OpenSim
  • Enough computing power, memory and bandwidth for a low lag experience
  • Servers located close to the central OSGrid servers for higher performance
  • Service monitoring tools for 7×24 availability
  • Daily data backups and redundant RAID 1 hard drives
  • Import and export of region contents (OAR archives)
  • All region owners get estate manager rights
  • Land can be split, joined, subleased and sold
  • Web portal with service management tool for our customers
  • Search, groups, offline messages, voice and money (PayPal), HyperGrid

We offer the following region types, where the minimum renting duration is 3 months.
