A new kind of Meeting in 2d Life
Now here's an interesting idea. An MIT researcher named Drew Henry is using Second Life, the virtual reality world created by Linden Labs, to design virtual spaces that don't look like copies of real world spaces, reports the MIT Technology Review. He's trying to use the non-physicalness of 2d life to imagine new kinds of spaces, rather than mimicking the real world. An example is a meeting space that he's created that doesn't look like a typical meeting room with a table in the middle. The article includes a multimedia slideshow that demonstrates his meeting space.
