I do too. Much that has been 'known' & 'understood' by previous generations seems to have been forgotten which is sad. As to IMVU, see if you can RSS their ToS, or at least read it every few days, have a look at the comments on the Virtual Worlds News blog post about their plans to exit BETA this summer & have a look at their content creator general discussion forum (http://www.imvu.com/forums) in addion to reading the responses to Jay Schwartz's thread "IMVU? tell me more". I have my own opinions as to why it is how it is atm, but I don't share them much as I'm mostly kept busy just trying to deal with the facts in front of me on a day to day basis & the resistance of staff to see reality. it's sad, because it's an awesome program that could be something wonderful. Ex CEO & founder Will Harvey's speech about it does give many hints & pointers tho' & can be found here: http://www.reznation.com/?cat=67 . I think you'll find it very interesting as it feeds into your present discussion
I hope we can network, as well, there's so much going on with education and virtual worlds! I suggest seeing if you can network with EduCause -- there was a lot of interest at the conference in San Francisco this week in the presentation on Second Life
Thanks Tia. We love it. The next step is to develop some low level high tech meeting facilities and then we will see what happens next. We love the place so much that the business plan has taken second place to our peace and quiet
Thanks Tia! Yes, the neighbourhood has really gone downhill lately... ;)
Actually, it's very early days for us (in this particular project at least) and very much baby steps, but it's proving much fun and very interesting. Helping make useful links between people who'd never even thought of being able to work together.
Hello Tia! Thanks for the compliment. I was going to use a Mii avatar, but since SL is booming, I figured 3D was the way to go. I actually just heard an interview that blogtalkradio did with you at the end of last year on the nature of transparency in business. Very insightful!
Hi Tia, thanks for the comment. Yes, I knew that the Cresta Run prevents women from racing. In our world, women and men are totally equal, and we already have some very successful women players competing at the very top of our ranking table.
It's very cute indeed isn't it...you can find out more here: http://www.chumby.com/ does the name Chris Lawer mean anything to you? For some reason I associate your name with him... anyway, he is a very good friend and former colleague of mine.
Hear from you :)
