There's been a heck of a lot of fuss about Google's Lively, Vivavity and the still forthcoming Rocketon (plus many more) but this is what we consider closest to an actual metaverse "inside" the web. Although we believe the web will ultimately be viewed from "inside" a metaverse on your desktop, "Just leap In" displays the graphic wealth of places like Second Life even at this alpha stage.
We're still waiting to get in on the full testing but you can all check out the demonstration room. There's a one-off plug-in to download but (thankfully) it's fully cross-platform for Windows and Macintosh.
Now back to Eselle! I am on this month's panel at Nokia Island at noon (SLT) today so we'd better brush the virtual hair. Do drop in.
