Historic teleportation: One small step for Ruth

Tateru Nino

According to Zha Ewry, at 11AM SLT (US Pacific time), Zha Ewry, Layla Linden and Tess Linden completed a successful cross domain teleport from the Second Life Aditi (preview) grid to an OpenSim simulator, essentially a teleport of the agents from one virtual world to another, and the first demonstrable step in cross-virtual-world interoperability.

No avatars or assets were transferred, so everyone arrived as Ruth (the generic, default avatar). Only the agents made the cross-grid jump as there is no current support for transferring anything else, but this is a huge step forward in the Agent Domain login prototypes. In a sense, it's the virtual world equivalent of the first Moon landing.
