As part of the 25-26 Feb 2008 Israeli Internet Association (ISOC-IL) conference I will host a day long intro session to the Metaverse. (9:00-16:00).
The Metaverse is described as a three-dimensional world in which human characters spend their time, play, work and live. A definition for the Metaverse is proposed 3D3C: 3D for the three Dimensions of this interactive world and 3C for Community in which people connect with one another, Creation that allows people to express themselves and Commerce that links real monetary value to actions in this world. The tutorial is a general introduction to the topic and a more in-depth look at some of the key factors.. The first part is a general overview aimed at people who wants to examine the phenomena; the second part is more technical for people who want to participate in this booming field. Please be advised: the Metaverse can be addictive.
Note: This is a packed day aimed at complete newbies to bring them up to speed with the Metaverse. We start with the basic (giving some cool tips and tricks for those with experience) and we cover business, building, scripting.
