State of Play V

I’m in Singapore for State of Play V, which concludes a self-indulgent week of buffing-up my research into games and virtual worlds in preparation for next month’s Gikii 2.

I’ve just come from a dinner where we were shown a documentary on businesses in Second Life, following the rise of virtual designers Pixel Dolls. I was intrigued by many of the features in the film, but not very keen on some of the broad claims made about virtual worlds, particularly some of the over-the-top gushing about Second Life and its importance.

Update: The movie is called Ideal World.
