Future of Metaverse be decided around a hookah on Queen Mary?
The decks of the Queen Mary will echo at the end of July with the sound of open source techno-communists in jackboots, academics in clogs, birkenstock and flip-flop clad developers, and more than a few virtual world entrepreneurs sporting the sort of butter soft handmade Italian footwear favored by the most influential of the inner core when the Metaverse Meetup kicks off next weekend — a meta meeting to party like ProkStars while plotting the next stage in the evolution of immersive new media for Open Sim, Second Life, Blue Mars, and other virtual worlds.
Look for a diverse group of players, practitioners, and researchers from the likes of Inteligencia LLC, Woodbury University, Duke University, Motion Cafe, Project Neuro along with a host others to chart the course for the Second Life diaspora.
The Alphaville Herald will be on hand with the kind of engaged analysis and informed opinion only found in these pages, as we temporarily relocate the Herald newsroom to a deluxe stateroom aboard the Queen Mary – and you can join in the fun! Special room rates are available through Monday, see this ning page for details.
While in LA, I’m hoping for an in-person interview with the Justice League Unlimited’s Kalel Venkman to discuss the fine points of the copyright fair use doctrine and the drawbacks to filing frivolous DMCA takedown notices. Kalel – if could stop by the Queen Mary you can both keep an eye on Woodbury crew and make good on that interview your promised me.
See you next weekend !
