Philip Rosedale: Not Nearly Far Enough

Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about “Philip Rosedale on Second Life | Vide…“, posted with vodpod


This video has me thinking about Second Life and Google Earth. Why is it not possible to create a Second Life style representation of Google Earth? Why can’t buildings be framed out in 3D? Why can’t individuals incorporate their floor plans into those frames? Why can’t people create avatars to populate this environment? Why can’t the schism between First Life and Second Life be crossed? Why can’t Facebook’s knowledge and Linkedin’s knowledge and Businesses and Governments translate into an enhanced virtual world? Why can’t every object in a virtual world be a hyperlink?

If You Don’t Like the Speed, Get Off the Ride

We have lived in “exponential times” since the big bang (if there was one)

TouchGraph: Search Goes Visual

I’ve just come from one of the most fantastic visual research tools I have ever come across. Touchgraph gives you visually in one page, what Google, Amazon and Facebook cannot deliver in pages of text. A clear understanding of how websites, books and people are related based on your search criteria at a glance. The TouchGraph product can also be customized to interact with your databases to reveal patterns in your data that text and traditional graphical tools cannot capture or represent.  I would love to see this hooked up to my corporate data warehouse.

This is a brilliant tool and I find it highly addictive. We need more graphical tools like this to help us to break out of the constraints of columns, rows, lines, bars and pies.

It would be nice to see WordPress integrate this into viewing their tags and search.

Systema: Six Hats, Six Coats vs. Social Networks

I was just reading here that Bill Gates has dropped his Facebook account. In fact, there is a general downward trend in the membership in Social Networking. Why is this? The primary reason is that social networking (observer) is not a goal (cause) in itself. It never has been.

If we think about social networking from a systems perspective, observers organize around a particular cause, then energy and mass, space and time networks arrange themselves subsequently. John Zachman is of the opinion that arranging the focuses in any order is the creation of a methodology, however I’ve concluded that there is only one methodology that works. Cause, Observer, Energy, Mass, Space and Time in that order and each is a network in itself.
