We’ve been steadily reformatting older content here on the CMS website so that all of our audio and video is available for download, both on the site and through iTunes.
One of the gems transferred to iTunes in this process was a video from the very first Futures of Entertainment conference.
(FOE4 is coming up in November.)
This “From the CMS archives” post features video from that first conference, from a session called “Not the Real World Anymore”. John Lester, from Linden Lab; Ron Meiners, Developer Relations Manager at Multiverse.net; and Todd Cunningham and Eric Gruber, from MTV Networks discussed how virtual spaces are becoming platforms for thought experiments—some of which involve fantasies we would not like to enact in the real world, others involve possibilities that we may want to test market before putting into practice.
