The new Second Life? Maybe


Just read about Vivaty on the Scobleizer and thought, gee, this could be a cool new tool for meeting planners. Robert Scoble likens it to Second Life, in a way, only with more widespread appeal. Scoble explains:

    My blog or Facebook page could have a 3D scene embedded on it, and you could “dive into” the scene and walk around. These scenes are very graphically rich. I could put videos, photos, and other details around, along with prebuilt furniture and other things.

I don't see why this couldn't extend to all kinds of meeting use, from speaker highlights and trade show previews to a pre-show networking forum. It'll be interesting to see what happens with this one.

Update: Looks like Google just launched its own version called Lively. Wish I wasn't so busy so I had time to play with these things!
