Ciaran Laval

Sansar sounds to me like a whole different kettle of fish to Second Life. Second Life is Linden Lab controlled from top to bottom, Sansar sounds to me like it won't be.

I would imagine there will be a Linden Lab controlled Sansar experience where it will be up to LL whether game mechanics are involved but I also imagine there will be distributed Sansar experiences that others make such decisions about.

Being able to play in a sandbox and string things together, to make a product which is of your own making, has got to be the most fulfilling thing that I have got from SL.

Playing with the physics model is where I have had the most fun.

SL is a platform that has drawn together such a diverse range of skills that I have learnt over the past 20 or so years, from coding, to photoshop skills and textures, to 3D spatial building.

My capacity to draw together the skills and knowledge that allowed me to produce an experience like Space Bounce, is an experience that any Virtual Worlds that come after SL, will have to remember, in which they understand the service they are providing their client base.
