"Invisible Worlds has hired Kris Magnusson, who has extensive experience developing open source policies, as Director of Developer Relations. Invisible Worlds has developed the Blocks architecture and the Blocks eXtensible eXchange Protocol (BXXP) for managing meta-data and defining an exchange model for organizing information into navigation spaces on the Internet."

"In his new position, Magnusson will continue working with the open source community in helping to refine the many new protocols and software innovations that are being developed by Invisible Worlds. Magnusson held a similar position for software giant Novell in Provo, Utah, where he was given the tasks of developing open source initiatives, formulating open source-related business strategies, and managing strategic open source projects."

"Brian Behlendorf, CEO of Collab.Net, a leading company in creating new open source markets and a partner with Invisible Worlds on several major projects, said, "This is an excellent appointment. I would consider this to be a good thing for Invisible Worlds and for the open source community. I've worked with Kris Magnusson extensively and find him to be an outstanding and effective liaison between the technology and business communities."
