What happens when the 2D, asynchronous Web collides with 3D, collaborative digital worlds? As the power of rich web applications, aggregation, and filtering are proven on the Web, how will these technologies be connected to interactive, 3D virtual worlds? Conversely, how will 3D worlds be used to better manage data, convey information, and enable new forms of communications?
The user-created online world Second Life provides a unique insight into these issues.
The presenter, Cory Ondrejka, CTO of Linden Labs, leads the team developing "Second Life," Linden Lab's award-winning, user-created digital world. He will cover the cutting-edge ways in which the Second Life community has embraced both 3D world and web technology in order to achieve the complementary goals of creating the worlds of their dreams and solving real-world problems.
