Hey Robert, just finished reading your book - nicely done. Plenty of wisdom and quite a few parallels to virtual worlds. Justin Lyon gave me a copy.
So, a question for you?.....you talk about the difference between ultimate and perfect mmogs. Has anyone built the perfect vw yet? And if not, what characteristics will it have?
I think you're right in what you're saying, but also right in what you say in your book. For example, SL may well be perfect for a group of residents who find it provides everything they need. Perfect for them in other words. I guess the same can be said for the 'vertical' worlds coming downstream
Having been with Second Life since the beginning and watching it progress by leaps and bounds in a small amount of time, going from a small society of about 300 to millions, I'm anxious to read your book and see what your perspective is regarding the MMO and it's direction.
Hello Phaylen : ) Second Life is just the beginning and barely scratches the surface of what is possible and what is to come. The future is going to be rather exciting...especially the next 5 years or so...
