TechFast Presentation: The Magic Circle, Realistic Expectations for Virtual Worlds

Note: Silverlight Required for video!

On Friday, August 5th, I was lucky enough to give a presentation to Wharton faculty and staff as part of the TechFast series. It was an exploration and history of Virtual Worlds entitled: The Magic Circle: Realistic Expectations for Virtual Worlds.

The talk covered a lot of history, and a lot of ground, including:

  • The history and evolution of virtual worlds
  • A tour of some of the more ambitious digital virtual projects
  • Describe the successes and challenges of our virtual campus

The presentation lasted about an hour, followed by a very interesting question and answer period.
