Sometimes that history youre supposed to remember . not to make the same mistakes again, shows up.:) People don’t really believe me when I tell them that myself and others have  been consistant and for a very long time have offered the same wisdom from having used these digital mediations for trying to do our creative work since the late 80s.  But its true everyone must learn everything for themselves.. so:

This year the “generation SL” and “class of 2006” of VR experts are all facing the end of their “worlds” as Blue Mars and others, SL -included- wind down and delete their time. work. and creative efforts, with as much care as one shows when one steps on the living grass;) The requiem posts and such for the last year are pretty much evidence of this…well that and all the fired “meta experts”.:) now on Linkedin.:)

In this last year Jaron Lanier and others have been nothing but praised by “creatives” as they “lament” the digital affects on “humanity” that they themselves so loudly and well paid for, evangelized in the early-mid 90s,–  when they were young and hot with the WIRED crowd.:) And much more rewarded for driving tech religion rather than designing solutions both creative and practical for others to use in business and in balanced civic lives.

Anyhow, glad the rest of you are finally aboard. Now it’s you’re turn to watch machines repeat themselves for another 15 years.:)  If you want to.:) Now the’s time to see how “creative” you can be.:)

The Birth of StarbaseC3 – Virtual Worlds based on Content, Commerce, and Community

I recently had one of my older “print” version portfolios sent to me from CA. It seems I must go back to the past to go forward into my future;) While going through and scanning pieces of my past work, I found a 1997 issue of Macworld magazine. I wasnt sure why I had kept it, but upon openeing it I saw it contained a large article about web3d to which I contributed “quotes” etc. Overall , from its Adobe(Macromedia) and Disney proclamations about web3d dominance;)  the article could have been published again this week. Of course Second Life would be mentioned if it was.;)  Anyhow , the article also had a call out feature on StarbaseC3. This article seems to predate the AOL /Asylum version of the StarbaseC3 which would bring the product into one complete web interface that used Flash to combine the 3D MMO, the narrative, and the commerce systems. Im listed as in NY, so it probably was written  a few months before that .

Take a read if you like, the article documents the ideas that some say “still” need to become the only successful long term way to make virtuality a media that serves us, rather than us, it.
