Freakin' awesome! Great roundup, Hamlet! Really intriguing to see what's up there; I knew you were onto something when you started doing more videos too.

I'm personally thrilled because I got so excited seeing some of these inworld, coming across them and being sparked by the churning wheels of invention.

I saw a picture book for kids the other day — dang I don't have the name, but one of the final pages was a composite of sheer awesomeness, throwing all these fairy tale characters into one seen, like a Shrek-exponent (Shrexponent?). I figure, put all 10 of the People's Choice in a blender... and we've got something very potent and scintillating.

In any case, something like this: http://commercial-archive.com/125761.php needs a Second Life equivalent.

(For 2007, I'd love to see someone fuse Great Good Places and Where's Waldo? and come up with a veritable megamix straining the avatar rendering limit and a pansection of modern avatar civ. Means BIZNESS!)

One more tangential thot for the machinimakers: on the topic of birth and life and Second Life, we should see a prim baby sonogram, and the emerging gynaecological video. It'd be backed by a series of bold string stabs like the latter section of BT's "Antikythera Mechanism", and result in much happiness for pixelflesh parents and child alike. Notably, the video would be filtered in several ways: clinical hospital-cam, as well as nervous Papa shaking hands, fumbling around. Expect recreations of analogue film grain.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, HERE'S TO RENEWAL!!!!
