This is the first 3D virtual world designed with Adobe Flash. We are crazy and big about giving people their power back. This will be through real and virtual economic activity and later through community power creation tools that you will create. Very soon you will see more...

8- Who sits behind this?
It is us a small group of creative people with our own intellectual capital and nothing else. We got financial backing from a venture fund called Golden Horn Ventures. No big boss, no global capital, no shady stuff.
