Hipihi open beta first day – population 40

It’s 4:00 am in my part of the world, 17:05 pm in Hipihi time, which is Beijing time.

This is the first day of the Hipihi open beta.

There are 40 people in-world at the moment.  I think this is the most I’ve seen inworld since I joined in June.

There’s a conversation in Chinese I can’t make out at all ….  unless i click on the line in chat, press control C, paste it into Google translate – a tedious process.

Why can’t the virtual world producers see how nice it would be to have machine translation built in?

I just installed a plugin for Open Office that automatically puts copied text from OO into Google translate.

How hard could it be to build a Google translation gadget into a virtual world browser?
