The official launch of KOINUP

Koinup will now be official launched and is a new way to upload your pictures, and what is interesting, also your machinima. The users will not have a limited space to upload their pictures, what is a good thing, compared to Flickr, where you have to pay to extend your capacity. This new network will not only be used by Second Life residents but also by other virtual life program residents. It has been running now for several months, and now they are ready for the official release.
An upcoming feature is the cross-post tool. You can upload pictures to Koinup and automatically this work will go both in your Koinup page and in your Flickr page. And every time you post a work in Koinup, your page in Twitter will be updated.

The future of Virtual Worlds is surely using the new 3D engines like UNREAL; SL is locked into the 90's technology and Server side editing is too unreliable (see outages for SL)

UNREAL is stable P2P and master server searchable, etc, etc.
