Quote from: Legion on September 27, 2011, 02:33:50 PMEmphasize might. While new business model thus revealed so far would be certainly be good for us, I'm concerned about how it would do to the company fiscal-wise. After all, most of their revenues comes from corporate sales but that might not last for long if economy don't pick up and they don't have another revenue stream to fall back on. If company goes belly-up, who's going to buy Active Worlds itself? Google? I don't think so. :pP.S. Well, Lucky Sevens might. Har har.
Quote from: Talisan on September 27, 2011, 04:55:34 PMUm, are these "corporate sales" real? We've been hearing this repeated over and over for quite some time, and I'd like to know who these companies("People") are that are making Rick and JP rich while they mostly ignore their main universe and users. These companies are myth-like, the saviors of our existence. I remember that IBM was a customer once, are they still? I also have to wonder what a company like IBM would be doing with an AW universe of their own, especially since IBM has been doing some restructuring over the years, spinning off its hardware to other companies/startups/etc.
Quote from: Talisan on October 01, 2011, 07:24:08 PMI have tried to get 2 of my professors to use AW in their programs without any luck.One was just too involved in SL to be convinced of a look. The other saw AWGATE and then balked. She thought the world was prettyish(no bells or whistles), but empty, and she had little idea of what to do. She never gave me the opportunity to show her, she went in on her own. She's a Computer Science teacher, and this convinces me that AWGATE is the wrong place to send people. There absolutely needs to be a tutorial world(or built in tutorial), similar to how SL does it, that teaches someone to use the interface and evinces the positives and activities of the program.
