Terry Ford Some would call Terry the back-end server guy, but we know better. We consider ourselves lucky to tell you our grid is powered by Terry Ford @ DigiWorldz. Terry’s experience on the Open Sim Metaverse, which he selflessly shares, is extensive and matched by few. His professional attitude and integrity has proven itself to us time and time again. Some would say, you can’t do business with your competition ( i.e. DigiWorldz ) but we (as does Terry) understand that the Metaverse is a community, more than a race to the top. We all want it to prosper, and whether or not we are willing to admit it, we all share in each successful or failed effort. Terry is a valuable and seasoned asset to our success.
