InWorldz 2012 was fun!

Kate Fosk gathers some of my favorite links about InWorldz happenings at http://www.scoop.it/t/inworldz-fun/

This week you will find links on Kate’s scoop.it page, called InWorldz Fun, to a number of the videos taken at the first InWorldz Conference. Prax Maryjasz and I really had a good time and learned a lot at the conference and meeting the founders and a number of people that make our InWorldz experience better, like Balpien Hammerer, Mike Chase, Raven Dulce, and Jim Tarber.

***The link for the archived videos of the presentations at InWorldz 2012 is http://www.ustream.tv/channel/inworldz-conference-2012/videos

We enjoyed having dinner with Mike Chase of the Cataplexia Numbers and Mike Chase team and Prax’s RL daughter, Marstol Nitely (IW and SL). Marstol bombarded him with questions but he did manage to eat some dinner. Thank you Mike for all your help! (Prax sneaks in here and sez….and for a great presentation!)

Bladax Kharg did a presentation about how he uses IW to show his RL clients how their kitchen or home will look and feel. He builds a model, complete with furnishings, and has his clients come into IW to walk around in the build to get the feel of living with the design before it is built in RL. Take a look at the video of his presentation archived at ustream.tv to see a lot of ideas for how to use IW to enhance RL and vice versa! (Prax loved the pirate outfit he wore at the Friday night reception and dinner.)

Prax takes over and writes:  I have been to many conferences but none of them run even a close second to the InWorldz celebration and edification hosted by our founders.  And thanks to the Nerd Herd, those techy marvels from the IW development team and volunteers like Balpien who made it come alive.  It was great meeting the typists for the avatars we know and love…………..sign me up for the next conference…….now!

(Alexina takes over posting.) It was great to finally meet Agnesa Capalini, a member of the board of directors of our Community Library at Delphi in InWorldz.  Community Library 4th floor looking out

Visit our our Community Library and check out the new 4th floor that we will be using for board meetings, book clubs and whatever else fits this Victorian interior. Alex redesigned the roof to accommodate Emilie Seda’s vision for our fourth floor. See more photos at http://bit.ly/GEWsbV but it is much more fun to visit the library for the whole experience.

See you in InWorldz! –Prax Maryjasz and Alexina Proctor

  • I enjoyed attending the conference dinner and the seminars I was able to attend. I fully intend to take advantage of the presentations I wasn’t able to attend, by watching them online. The founders and other presenters were all knowledgeable and articulate.

    This was my first contact with the founders (and most of the attendees) in world or out. I found them to be generous, approachable, and fun-loving. At the same time they were obviously serious about their commitment to InWorldz and passionate about continuing to build and improve upon their accomplishments. All while keeping an eye on stability and their residents’ wishes. It’s a tall order, but they’ve managed to meet all their goals so far. I’m sure they’ll persevere.

    I enjoyed dinner with the two of you and Mike Chase, but would not characterize our conversation as my “bombarding” him with questions while he managed to eat “some” of his dinner. Admittedly, he had much more knowledge about our subject of discussion. And I was thrilled to have access to someone with so much knowledge about various aspects and types of content creation and virtual worlds. It was not a completely one-sided conversation and he seemed happy to share his expertise. I certainly appreciated his openness and willingness to share and discuss.

    Meeting Agnesa Capalini was a real pleasure. She seems a truly nice person and was such fun to be around.
