Robert Hodgin makes me want to put my laptop down and just surrender already. Cripes. Robert, you’re makin’ it really hard for the rest of us, sheesh!
Mark Wallace summarizes what Joe Miller said at Virtual Worlds ’07:
Pretty much the most interesting bit of this came at the very end, from Joe Miller, vp for platform and technology development at Linden Lab, makers of the virtual world of Second Life:
• We’ll be open-sourcing the back end so sims can run anywhere on any machine whether trusted by us or not.
• We’ll be delivering assets in a totally different method that won’t be such a burden on the simulators.
• Very soon we’ll be updating simulators to support multiple versions so that we don’t have to update the entire Grid at once.
• We’ll be using open protocols.
• SL cannot truly succeed as long as one company controls the Grid.”
Extremely good news! So many good things will come from this.
