A live conference to discuss the next generation of gaming and how to turn that to the advantage of the industry in Ireland took place today. Hosted by the University of Ulster in association with the North West regional college the conference brought together some key figures in the world of gaming development….apparently.
The problem seems to be, that in space, nobody (not our Nobody) hears you scream. I didn’t even know that the University of Ulster had a presence in Second Life, nor did I know that they were hosting a live conference. This is one of the problems of Second Life, the potential is there but the publicity is not. The vast open spaces mean that so much slips through the cracks and instead we see the Washington Post poking fun at people trying to protect their intellectual property rights rather than hearing about the vast array of uses for the platform.
