It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to AltspaceVR, a virtual platform that has had a profound impact on so many people. As fans of the platform, we are deeply saddened to hear of its closure on 10th March, 2023. Although AltspaceVR was only a collection of pixels and code, it represented something much greater to all of us. It was a place of connection, creativity, and community that transcended physical boundaries and brought people together from all over the world.
AltspaceVR was more than just a virtual platform; it was a culture that valued inclusion, diversity, and acceptance. It was a place where people of all backgrounds and identities could come together without fear of judgement or discrimination. From virtual dance parties to group meditations, AltspaceVR was a space where people could truly be themselves.
But perhaps the most important legacy of AltspaceVR is the connections that were made within its virtual walls. For many, AltspaceVR provided a sense of belonging and friendship that was hard to find in the real world. People who had never met in person formed bonds that were just as strong as any face-to-face relationship. As the saying goes, “friends come and go, but AltspaceVR friends are forever.”
As we bid farewell to AltspaceVR, we are reminded of the incredible impact it had on our lives. We will always cherish the memories and connections made within its virtual platform, and we know that its spirit will live on in the hearts and minds of all those who loved it. Thank you, AltspaceVR, for the unforgettable experiences and the culture of inclusivity that you have fostered.
