ActiveWorlds turns 20 years old on June 28, 2015. Since then, the community has created thousands of worlds across millions of meters with billions of objects. Twenty years is a major milestone for any community, and we plan on making sure everyone knows it. Throughout the entire year, the ActiveWorlds community will be hosting amazing events to celebrate the place we call home. Take a look at a few of these events below, and check back often as more are added to the list. If you want to add your own events, visit the community calendar.
It was Wednesday June 28th, 1995. I don't recall the exact time. I think it was in the evening though... after a long day of work getting the identity server to work. My best guess would be around 8:00 pm PDT. On "day one", people could reserve an identity for the first time. This was the day that several people beat me establishing their identity. By the time I immigrated, I was citizen #4! I asked them if I could reset the citizen database to get citizen #1. They gladly agreed. Within the next few hours we had our first citizens of AlphaWorld.
