A Segunda Vida no Google | Google’s Second Life

Eu prefiro a vida real, mas é necessário falar disto: o Google juntou-se à caravana dos mundos virtuais com o Lively , que é a resposta da empresa ao Second Life. Podendo correr a partir de um browser e sem exigir tanto da máquina, este novo mundo pode ter grande sucesso entre os menos literados digitalmente. Ainda em fase beta, o potencial de crescimento do Lively é enorme. Vale a pena dar uma vista de olhos.

I prefer real life, but we have to talk about this: Google joined the virtual world bandwagon with Lively, which is pretty much the company’s answer to Second Life. Being able to run from a web browser and without asking too much from the machinery, this brave new world may turn out to be a great success among the digitally impaired. Still in beta stage, the growth potencial of Lively is huge. It’s worth taking a look.

Documentário | Documentary :Life in Second Life

Eu não gosto do Second Life, parece-me uma versão estilizada e pobre da vida a sério, apesar de achar que a plataforma tem potencialidades e características muito interessantes.  Conferências, aulas, reuniões, tudo poderia ter lugar neste mundo virtual. Imaginem um curso tirado na Linden University, independentemente do sítio onde estivessem no Mundo. Enquanto não passar de uma promenade de avatares, não me fascina. Mas como se vive no Second Life? A HBO comprou recentemente um documentário que fala do percurso de Molotov Alva, uma segunda versão de Douglas Gayeton, nas suas deambulações pela vida virtual do Second Life. E para além de o irem transmitir, vão propô-lo para os Óscares.

I don’t like Second Life, it seems to me like a stylized shallow version of the First one, although i believe the platform has some interesting potential. Conferences, classes, reunions, all can occur in this virtual world. Imagine a degree taken at Linden U., regardless where you might be? While is still an avatar catwalk, i’m not into it. But how do you live the Second Life? HBO bought recently a documentary that follows the ramblings of Molotov Alva, the Second version of Douglas Gayeton, through the virtual Second Life. And they’re proposing it to the 2008 Academy Awards.
