An email from livejournal, the company, wanting me to take a survey. Its questions slanted toward FaceBook style social networking. Interesting. Why? Then too I wonder why, when I tried Sgrouples (which named its name to MeWe), did that not take off. That site offers strong privacy protection, a feature I like very much. There was a burst of interest, then it all died back. Where did the people go? My guess is FaceBook and Twitter.

Meanwhile, I have wrapped up most of my activities in InWorldz, the vrtual worlds company, and am involved in High Fidelity. HF is a next generation virtual world startup creating a virtual world platform, mostly open source based, that lets others create virtual worlds (yes, it is a bit meta). They stress low latency and high quality facial expression and hand gesture captures that are then transferred and shifted to the avatar. The result is a compelling interaction because for once multiple modalities of communication are opened up.

It is exciting to be surfing the digital waves again.


Be well, all!

So happy to see you here! Every time I go out into the back garden I think of all your generous assistance when I was in the process of acquiring my home -- hard to believe it's over ten years ago now -- the garden has matured and developed a bit each year, and has perhaps another ten to go before it begins to resemble my vision for it.

Thank you for letting us know what you've been up to --

John
