Share your virtual world resolutions here! I'll start with a couple:
Refresh my genuine enthusiasm for virtual worlds/reality.
After seeing promises go unfulfilled or fall far short for over a decade, I have to admit some skepticism, often causing a reflexive, hair-trigger "Meh I've heard that hype before" reaction. Thing is, history doesn't always repeat, and even if a technology doesn't become The Next Great Disruptive Power, it can still be important and cool in itself all the same. Seeing the great top entries in that Killer VR app contest I helped manage last month helped remind me of that -- as did the burst of creativity around Bento avatars. This year, hopefully, I'll try to maintain as much curiosity and enthusiasm for what's coming in the next 12 months.
Here's an open forum for SLers for the holiday week/weekend: Post your favorite Second Life Marketplace listings, especially holiday shopping offers, and I'll promote the best ones in standalone posts for the remainder of the week. Yes, content creators, you can post links to your own listings, as long as they're lovely. Preference given to truly innovative items (please explain why), especially items which make use of the latest Bento/mesh technology.
So this is a call: If you own a well-known SL brand and you're planning to launch in Sansar soon, please let me know. Post in Comments below, hit me up in any of these social/SL channels listed here. I'd love to know what you're planning.
New World Notes is currently recovering from two weeks of the reality above, so taking a brief hiatus today from blogging about all things virtual. Meantime, the mic is open to NWN readers -- what about VR and related topics should NWN feature once we're back in business?
