Wort des Jahres – "Second Life" auf Platz 7

Als erster IT-Begriff landete „Second Life“ auf Platz 7 der Liste. Dabei bezeichne das „Second Life“ nicht nur die gleichnamige Internetplattform, sondern „in erster Linie die neuen Möglichkeiten des Internets, in einer virtuellen Welt sozusagen ein »zweites Leben« zu leben“, so die GfdS.

Die komplette Top 10 im Überblick:

1. Klimakatastrophe
2. Herdprämie
3. Raucherkneipe
4. arm durch Arbeit
5. Dopingbeichte
6. Lustreisen
7. Second Life
8. Bundestrojaner

Second Earth

Very interesting article about the metaverses writen by Wade Roush on www.technologyreview.com
(Well, its from august 2007, sorry for the delay!):

"The World Wide Web will soon be absorbed into the World Wide Sim: an environment combining elements of Second Life® and Google Earth®."

Second Life® und Deutschland im Pixelsebi-Ranking

Der Pixelsebi hat mal die Second Life®-internen Newsgruppen unter die Lupe genommen:
http://pixelsebi.com/2007-11-29/ranking-deutscher-unternehmen-in-second-life/

newBERLIN auf Platz 3 !! Gut, gegen Calli haben wir natürlich keine Chance, Apfelland wird sicher bald überholt...;)
Die Anzahl der Gruppenmitglieder spiegelt sicher auch die Beliebtheit der SL Präsentationen wieder. Schliesslich tritt man in SL einer Gruppe freiwillig bei. Funny frisch auf Platz 4 liegt in meinen Augen z.B. sicherlich an der hervorragenden Umsetzung.

Das unsere Second Life® Gruppe "newBERLIN_Streetlife" so gross ist, haben wir aber natürlich vor Allem unseren Inworld Community Managern Zap Hax (er ist Gründer der Gruppe) und LunAr Bailey zu verdanken... !!

web 2.0 expo berlin 2007

"About This Conference

To meet the increasing demand for Web 2.0 comprehension and skills, and to build a broader European Web 2.0 community, O’Reilly Media and CMP Technology have launched Web 2.0 Expo Berlin to take place 5-8 November, 2007 in Berlin, Germany. A companion event to the Web 2.0 Summit, it is the conference and tradeshow for the rapidly growing ranks of designers and developers, product managers, entrepreneurs, VCs, marketers, and business strategists who are embracing the opportunities created by Web 2.0 technologies."
http://berlin.web2expo.com/

my summary:

EVERYTHNG still seems to be about
- social -
so even google came up with:
orkult: build your OWN social network tool

THE big Q: How to build social NETWORKS and how to IMPLIMETING YOUR NEED (product);)
So the good news is: we already can do it better then in 2D boring text and picture content;
Second Life -the web 3.0- kicks in when web 2.0 really is developed and they start talking to each other.

Another topic, the web 1.0 just did the infrastructure, 2.0 is fillig it with applications,
and the future seems to use this all as a framework, to gain a totally user customized content,
filled with liquid kinds of widgets...
So we all work on a frame where user can paste in tools to fill this frame with thier content?

jAn

BTW: next time PLEASE better food and more coffee!!! (probably some chairs too;)
and MAYBE the BCC (Berlin Congress Center) would be the much better place for this event?

Metaverse Summit 2007 Newsletter

A few days left to save € 100 on Metaverse Summit registration

Special price registration closes Wednesday 29th October – register now for the Metaverse Summit in Berlin and save € 100.

Register here

YOUseeMein3D.com Jan Northoff & Tobias Neisecke GbR, agency for virtual worlds and 3D-visualisations, is official sponsor of the MetaverseSummit 2007 and besides, Northoff and Neisecke take part in the conference as a speaker.

The agency works on the advancement of 3D-internet and is realizing service-orientated representations and appearances of companies in virtual worlds as well as 3D-visualisations of all kinds. To demonstrate and implement their concept of merging virtuality and reality by a 3D-internet, the agency developed the platform newBERLIN in Second Life, the true to scale reproduction of Berlin. newBERLIN is an interactive platform that holds correspondence to reality and involves users by offering them entertainment, activities and information. At the same time, the virtual city provides ideal marketing value to the companies and bodies that are represented there. They can offer services and set up consumer-orientated virtual branches. In turn users get to know the companies and bodies in a playful way.

One way of merging reality and virtuality is by duplication events or broadcasting between the "worlds". YOUseeMEin3D.com is working in that field and therefore will broadcast parts of the Metaverse Summit 2007 via live-stream to newBERLIN.

At the conference Jan Northoff will discourse about why we need virtual shoes. He claims: "Virtuality is a lie: information is always real". Tobias Neisecke´s session is about the trend to reproduce cities in Second Life and on how to plan, manage, and promote a SL city. Why should a company have a branch in a SL city?At the time of the conference YOUseeMEin3D.com is celebrating its first anniversary and therefore there will not only be a talk looking back over the first year but also a big "birthday party". Every participant of the conference is invited to join the party on december 7th after the official program, as a relaxing finish.

The newBERLIN Sandbox gets more and more popular. The newBERLIN Builder School offers a high class repertory of panels, see Eventcalendar. But what about downtime!? Aram Bartholl found a nice solution for all SL Building addicts in Berlin: the RL Sandbox. Watch this funny clip.

We had a nice session concerning the Berlin Sandbox at our flagstore before, see fotos here.

Metaverse Summit 2007 in Berlin, 6-7th of December

METAVERSE SUMMIT 2007

Join the Metaverse Summit to explore and shape the future of the virtual and 3D Web

"What happens when video games meet Web 2.0? When virtual worlds meet geospatial maps of the planet? When simulations get real and life and business go virtual? When you use a virtual Earth to navigate the physical Earth, and your avatar becomes your online agent? What happens is the metaverse." (Smart, J.M., Cascio, J. and Paffendorf, J., Metaverse Roadmap Overview, 2007)

The web is moving from its 2D beginnings towards its virtual and 3D future. The Metaverse Summit will consist of two days featuring interactive sessions revolving the next generation of the internet - the Metaverse - in all its manifestations:

  • Augmented Reality
  • Lifelogging
  • Mirror Worlds
  • Virtual Worlds

The rapid development and exploration of 3D immersive environments is changing the way people communicate, collaborate, work and live. It is bringing about significant businesses as well as social and technological opportunities, challenges and questions. This unique event will bring together business leaders, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, technologists, futurists, and industry participants to spend two days discussing current and emerging social, economic and technological trends and issues around the 3D-enabled web, virtual worlds, immersive networks, and ubiquitous information.

The Metaverse Summit 2007 will be held at the Estrel Convention Center in Berlin, Germany, on December 06 - 07, 2007, and will include

  • Keynotes and presentations of well-known industry leaders
  • Panel discussions and roundtables
  • Showcasing and demonstration of the latest technologies and services from leading companies
  • Unparalleled networking opportunities

The Metaverse Summit, organised by Helmut Reul, is the must attend event of the year and you all invite to participate in this great event for the exchange of new ideas in this exciting field!

Please note this event is not part of the Metaverse Roadmap Project and is not affiliated with the Acceleration Studies Foundation.
