22 February to 28 February
Thursday marks the beginning of the 4th annual Cornflakes Week in Opensim, and yet again, many grid owners have pulled out all the stops to make it a fun and silly one.
If you missed previous years, here's a video of last year's event, to give you an idea of what happens
Cornflakes Woodcock, whose creations are the center of the event, did not start Cornflakes Week.
Corn died a couple of years before we began to celebrate this coming together of friends, new and old, to just be silly in a way that is unique to Opensim, not touched by race, religion, season, culture, or any other of the real world groupings that divide the human family.
His loss was a timely reminder of the need for community across the hyperverse, in that many of us opensim residents, busy as we are with our own worlds and our own projects, didn't even realize he had passed until long after the event. It highlighted the importance of us all keeping in touch, when possible and appropriate, and being there for our friends.
Yet, even though his objects and his story form a part of the inspiration for the event, this is not a tribute to one man. It is a much bigger event than that, it looks to the future of our unique community.
I'm sure he would approve of that. Not making a fuss about him, above all other people, but instead, being kind, and silly and continuing the marvellous mixing of creativity that this year has once again produced.
