If you are coming to FuturePlay 2007 you probably know that one of our keynotes will be Cory Ondrejka of Linden Lab
Episode 23 of t6 featured am interview with Cory Ondrejka, VP of Product Development for Linden Lab of San Francisco, the creators of Second Life.
Glyn Heatley and I sat down via Gizmo (to phone) with Cory Ondrejka and talked about everything Second Life. We discussed academic applications of this virtual world, research applications, and even UFO abductions (virtual ones...).
The folks at Linden lab are visionaries, no question about it and you can tell talking to a guy like Cory.
This is just another example of how games are not only entertaining but can have emergent properties of their own. Thanks Cory!
(note: Glyn had some mic problems, he may have actually turned off the mic... so Dave had to do a lot of signal processing to get this one out, so there may be some points that are a bit rough).
Enjoy the interview.
