All seems to indicate that new, fully immersive next-generation virtual worlds and user interfaces may be around the corner. Let’s go back to the future in the Metaverse!
I fell totally in love with Second Life one minute after joining in 2005. A few weeks later I left a very boring but very well paid senior management post in the public sector to became a technology entrepreneur.
More than 80 transhumanist avatars stormed the virtual world of Second Life for a community event organized by Humanity+ on September 15 , 2011. This has been by far the largest virtual transhumanist event that I have seen, and I believe I have seen them all.
