Google Lively

Looks like the 'SecondLife' fever has bitten Google 😉

Google has come up with its own 3D world called lively: Check it out here: Lively - Welcome
Oh noes!! This stuff is worse than social networking! We gotta stop this plague! 😛

What's so bad about lively and second life? I was in fact trying to get in touch with Second Life for business with my employer 😛

Well, I dont doubt its popularity. But social networking is "popular" too, and you can still say they are bad 😉

I was reading somewhere that using Second Life can enhance real life social skills. Thats totally bull! 😛 Oh well, it might work for some REALLY shy and anti-social people.

Well, you know what? I think the same! Social networking is for people who don't have life ( aaa 😲 ).

I've seen people spend whole day writing messages on social networks than picking up the phone and calling your best buddy.

But this 3D thing is going to be very popular. Imagine the possibilities in 'second life' you could sell/buy virtual real estate - and there's no limit !

Hey Biggi, Ash...

Do you guys know that people are working to convert the second life money in real life..?

Second life is awesome... If google will be able to make Lively near to second life.. it would be great.

Indeed.. but what if people get too attached to it? Having a "real" economy online has their drawbacks. If people get too serious with it, then lose their savings because of some "glitch" or "error", they'll get really depressed or suicidal. Its too easy to generate a billion virtual dollars if you want to. No fun in that 😉 Unless of course, you treat this whole things as a big game.

Another thing.. spending too much time on the computer is not good (you'd know, right? 😉 ) I'd doubt you "exercising" online will do much to your real body.

Anyway, I'm going too off topic here. These 3D virtual worlds would indeed satisfy demand. But there is a little danger of graying the area between treating it as "real" or just a "game".
