Intelligence Amplification Panel – Building the Metaverse

Posted: June 17th, 2006, 3:00pm EST
The Metaverse: the social, media-rich, 3-dimensional Web. In this panel at Accelerating Change 2005, entitled “Building the Metaverse”, two examples of the emerging Metaverse are demonstrated. Philip Rosedale, CEO of Linden Lab, shows off Second Life and David Alan Smith, creator of “The Colony”, demonstrates the Croquet project. What emerges are two similarly powerful interactive systems that are allowing people to interact and be creative together in ways never before possible. As computation spreads ever deeper into our lives, we will all increasingly live in the Metaverse. When you can build the ideal world, what do you build?

  1. Oooh… I love that question!! “When you can build the ideal world, what do you build?”

    The more time I spend in SL, the more I realise that the possibilities are endless! Today I read something about the International Spaceflight Museum in Second Life… gotta check that out!

    I’m setting up a space on SL for Taloers who want to do some basic experimenting – hope you’ll come play, Chris! 😉
