Seems that small charities as well as large corporations haven't grasped the basic tenet that "If you build it, they will come" only works in the movies.

I have to agree with Toxic, and kudos to Aurelia for pointing out some of what these amazing projects are still lacking virtually.

The winner of the Linden Prize was a prototype for a real-world museum’s exhibits. What would you expect it to look like other than a real-world exhibit? And what does traffic have to do with the effectiveness of a prototype for a real-world project like that, or a region only used while students are in class? Inworld Residents aren’t the target audience of at least a couple of the prize nominees and the entries shouldn’t be judged based on criteria that haven’t got anything to do with their real-world purposes. These are not entertainment projects.

I must have spent at least 90 minutes piecing together the Uncle D StoryQuest (and bemoaning the missing parts). Yes, the sims are in some respects conventional (the giant retroviral apart) but that was surely the point.

As for interaction, it can be a tough call. The StoryQuest was always going to be word-heavy. Notecards are at least easy to read for n00bs. The books by contrast, while pretty and more lifelike, take time to rez pages, can only be read by one avatar at a time and require some sophistication in terms of camera skills.

The sim was, indeed, quiet but that suited me. If your objective is to engage the creator or a visitor, you need to have attended one of the live sessions they've run in the past.

From a creative perspective, I've reflected and subsequently blogged, tweeted and now commented on my visit. Incidentally, StoryQuest itself seems to have become part of Dusan Writer's SL operation in the guise of Startled Cat.

I can't see why Patriot Island would be interesting for most SL residents.
