[video] Philip Rosedale live in Amsterdam 2008

When Second Life founder and former Linden Lab CEO Philip Rosedale ( a.k.a. avatar Philip Linden) was in Amsterdam in september 2008, he gave a very inspiring lecture and intimate Q & A at the third EduverseSymposium at De Balie: ‘Your Virtual Future‘.

Watch a livestream video recording of this conversation with Philip Rosedale on the future of virtual worlds here:

And there is also a machinima video online (created by Chantal Harvey), shot at the mobile virtual auditorium of De Balie.





“Second Life is not a techno-elitist toy. This is something that’s empowering and meaningfull to a lot of people. And when I said people build Ferrari’s in SL, I only meant sadly that television has taught them to covet Ferrari’s. Not that they own them.” – (Philip Rosedale, Amsterdam sept. 23, 2008) – – From 05:09 on

27 sept.>5 oct.: Meta.Live.Nu @ Burning Life 2008s,

Meta.Live.Nu was selected by the Burning Life organisation to get land access in order to be present at Burning Life 2008.  On show is the experimental ‘information-art’ installation by Ze Moo:

“Grid Gypsy Camp: Brazil”

This cross-reality, information-art installation is our reply to this years Burning Man / Burning Life theme “The American Dream”. It is partly inspired by the Burning Man festival, partly inspired by the Terry Gilliam movie Brazil’ (1984), and partly inspired by the article Avatars consume as much electricity as Brazilians” by Nicholas Carr. Other inspirations into this interactive mixed media art piece come from various real global social, political and enviromental issues.

Next to this, Meta.Live.Nu at BL 2008 will also present some sculptures by invited artist Herman Bergson.
