High Fidelity Has Effectively Shut Down, But Dr. Fran’s Weekly Salon Will Continue

Well, High Fidelity has effectively shut down as of January 15th, 2020, and you will no longer be able to create any new accounts, but since the platform is distributed, anybody who already has a HiFi account can still visit High Fidelity and participate in events.

Dr. Fran has hosted a weekly salon in High Fidelity for quite some time, where avatars gather to discuss a given topic.

Today’s salon topic is sadly relevant in light of recent events:

Dr. Fran’s original domain, DocSalon, has already been shut down, as the domain name she bought from High Fidelity has now expired. But Thoys has come to the rescue, with a new domain. Here’s the new address for today’s discussion, happening at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time (that link should automatically open your HiFi client software).

High Fidelity will no longer be updating their client software (in fact, they have already shut down their website), but the good news is that at least three different forks of the open-source software are in the works.
