Electric Sheep Company CEO Sibley Verbeck and other staff members will be discussing the Metaverse Roadmap and Electric Sheep Company’s role and activities in the roadmapping project in a multimedia presentation with live in-world demonstration. The Metaverse Roadmap (http://metaverseroadmap.org/) is a visioning and execution project sponsored by the Accelerating Change Foundation to develop a coherent path to the Internet dominated by 3D technology, social spaces and economies.
It never ceases to amaze me what google alerts brings my way. The Washington DC Future Salon is holding an upcoming event on November 8th at the ESC offices titled SL Metaverse Roadmap with the Electric Sheep Company. Details here for those interested.
Last week I promised to write a post on the impact of big business entering SL. The purpose of the post was to try and start a conversation on many of the concerns I have heard voiced from long term residents over the last six months. One event I had been particularly looking forward to was the Sustaining The Metaverse 3pointD Think Tank session. Unfortunately the event was brought forward by three hours from the originally scheduled time so I ended up missing it completely. Yes in some ways comms between SL and RL is still in its infancy. Thankfully the 40+ people who did attend have generously shared their thoughts post the session.
Mark Wallace has written-up a post on the ideas that came out of the session which is recommended reading. Three core themes crossed many of the issues raised – community, technology and environment – all of which I care passionately about. Aki suggests in the comments setting up a wiki to track the ideas raised which Martin is in the process of doing so. Rather than sounding off here on my thoughts and starting a separate conversation I shall go and join the conversation already started over on the 3pointD Think Tank. Had I made it I would have joined session 5 where commercial, political and societal concerns were discussed. If you are reading this and feel likewise I suggest you do likewise.
