Back to the Future (before crash)

VIDEO – Back to the future in the Metaverse, May 15

The Back to the future in the Metaverse event, on May 15, started as a major clusterf###, but continued as a very interesting event thanks to the fast reaction of my good friend David Orban. Watch the video below.

So many people came that the Second Life server was overloaded and eventually (snow-)crashed! The first 12 minutes of the video are surreal and fun: watch first the event organizer, then the cameraman and the founder of Second Life himself, ejected from Second Life!

Eventually everyone was ejected from Second Life, a real Snow Crash [UPDATE: not everyone, see comments here].

David was streaming the event to the Web via Google Hangouts on Air, and got most speakers to give their talks in Hangouts.

The talks start at minute 20 in the video:

See here for more about the speakers.

I will write another posts with comments on the really excellent talks, and slides.
