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:
I don't see why this couldn't extend to all kinds of meeting use, from speaker highlights andpreviews 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!
