I came across this great news site yesterday which focusses entirely on Virtual Worlds – The Metaverse Journal. It’s Australian based as well, which is great news for me and my colleagues.
A couple of good posts to start off with would be their predictions for the world of Virtual Worlds in 2010 and a refreshingly modest look back at their predictions for 2009.
Among their predictions for 2010 are that Virtual Environments will be more closely integrated with Social networking sites and the gimme that Australia will have it’s first govt funded virtual environment. (Disclaimer – we’re involved in this project ourselves and it looks to be very exciting)
They also have a wiki up with details of virtual worlds projects in Australia and New Zealand – slightly sparse at the moment but already there is some useful info up there.
