MetaPlace: I'm a Toon
Location: MetaPlace, in My Living Room
Well, I've always been a Toon.
MetaPlace is a virtual world that enables content creation and is Web-based. It was frightfully easy to get started.
Now little bobble-head IggyO is in his virtual living room. He watched a video about the potential of MetaPlace.
I'm liking the fakeness of this virtual world. And unlike OpenLife, I'm not a friggin' cloud. I cannot be bald or in dreads, yet...but so far, this looks entertaining. I had the avatar do a little dance in all his pixelated glory.
