Second Life 360s are really beautiful.

Cool thanks, I'll check it out! I've only seen Facebook versions which I'm not as much a fan off.

Speaking of NFTs, there was an attempt to introduce them into the YA (young adult) genre through a project called Realms of Ruin and that backfired tremendously. https://twitter.com/BadWritingTakes/status/1450954558990077958 and https://twitter.com/FoldableHuman/status/1451029725149732864 are two Twitter threads that discussed the project, which lasted all of three hours!

The other NFT project that has been met with a LOT of fan anger is the Neopets Metaverse project, but that one is still going. Polygon did an article about it here. https://www.polygon.com/22722915/neopets-nft-controversy-noneonfts-metaverse

I don't see the value in NFTs personally, but if someone is going to try them, they should really think about how receptive the market is to those NFTs.

OK, correction - it wasn't three hours, more like five for Realms of Ruin. Still, it was a very short-lived project that will likely haunt the reputations of the authors involved for some time to come, at least among the reading and writing community on Twitter.

Oh wow interesting, thanks!
