Lively- big players move into VW field

Google has its own virtual world simulator.  Lively.  Read about ita t terra nova blog.

I made a room ( a cafe!) and an avatar.  My avatar looks like one of my smug students chewing gum.  Blech.

I couldn’t seem to walk, only scoot by clicking on a different spot and then the ava just **zip** appears there.  For some reason it reminded me of a 3D version of the old text adventure games like  Hitchhiker’s Guide or (??) Zork.

Ok, thats my review after five minutes.  It was easy to download and set up.
