Nascono nuovi mondi virtuali

Dopo il successo riscosso da Second Life, due tra le più importanti aziende al mondo hanno deciso di creare un mondo virtuale tutto loro, in cui solo i diepndenti delle due aziende hanno accesso: si tratta di SUN e IBM, entrambe già fortemente presenti su Second Life

Qui sotto riportiamo la discussione avuta presso l'ufficio clienti sull'isola di Sun Microsystem con due collaboratori di Sun

[5:42] You: hello
[5:42] Jhaczyn Writer: hello, and good morning
[5:43] Jhaczyn Writer: where are you from?
[5:44] You: hello
[5:44] You: i'm from italy
[5:45] Jhaczyn Writer: I'm in the US… are you a SUn employee?
[5:45] You: no
[5:45] You: i'm an ityalian student
[5:46] Jhaczyn Writer: good for you, what are you studying?
[5:46] You: i'm going to graduate in engeneering
[5:46] You: can we have a little talk about conferences in sl?
[5:47] Jhaczyn Writer: if you like… I'm waiting for a co-worker to appear so we can discuss this week-ends issues with our customers
[5:48] You: ok, we can talk till he appears.. right?
[5:49] Jhaczyn Writer: I'll be in and out…I'm tracing a customer error as we speak…
[5:49] Jhaczyn Writer: what would you like to knoiw about conferences?
[5:50] You: i'm doing a little research for my marketing course at the university
[5:51] You: i'd lke to know the advantages that a company encounters in doing conferences in sl…
[5:52] Jhaczyn Writer: well, for us, since there are a lot of employees who work remotely, it gives us a centralized place to meet "virtually", similiar to an office meeting
[5:53] Jhaczyn Writer: it also tends to be more interactive than a conference call
[5:53] You: exactly this! why it's more interactive?
[5:55] Jhaczyn Writer: for me, there is the history window, so you can track what is being said by all, secondly, it allows you to participate by sharing common problems with your team.
[5:55] Jhaczyn Writer: so if you are scattered from all over, like you and I, we can involve the remote employees as a single entity
[5:56] You: ok, do you think that conference in sl are better than for example videoconferences?
[5:58] Jhaczyn Writer: I do not have that much experience with video conferences, but from what I have, they tend to be more of a example of disimmenating information than exchanging it
[5:58] Jhaczyn Writer: good mornign Guy
[5:58] Jhaczyn Writer: nice that you could make it
[5:58] Guy Trenchard: good morning
[5:58] You: good morning guy
[5:58] Jhaczyn Writer: this is Zap, he's a college student from Italy
[5:58] You: can i make you on more question jhaczyn?
[5:58] Jhaczyn Writer: sure
[5:59] You: thanks
[5:59] You: i know that sun microsytems have just created an its own virtual world
[5:59] You: whay?
[5:59] You: whay?
[5:59] You: sorry, why?
[6:01] Jhaczyn Writer: I think it's to allow potential customer a "virtual" look and feel of what Sun has to offer. There are demo's that are going to be set up for customers to look at, and possibly try
[6:02] You: but anyone can enter in that virtual world or only sun emloyee?
[6:02] Jhaczyn Writer: yuo're here, are you not?
[6:02] Jhaczyn Writer: There may be places reserved for Sun employees, but I'm not involved with that..
