Human Communication and Networking Archives

January 1, 0001

WLA2-S11.jpg second_life_startup.jpg This category and this category in the Japanese version of my blog contains topics on human languages, human communication using media, and human (and computer) networks and connections. The upper category is Blog from Kanada.

BTW, as shown on the top of the category page, the submission date of this page is intentionally set 0001-01-01 00:00:00. However, the actual submission date is 2009-01-18 13:12:04.

To keep the page light, I exclude photos in individual pages from the archive page. Instead, I inserted some of them here.

I read that Steve Jobs used an expression "going to reinvent the phone" concerning iPhone in the Macworld San Francisco on January 9 this year. However, for me who intended to change the user interface of telephone drastically by a new medium called voiscape, iPhone seems to be much more conservative and it is not appropriate to use the expression "reinvent the phone".

Some people say the Second Life is dull; i.e., there are usually only a few people in the virtual worlds of Linden Lab's Second Life. In "Game scrumble by Kiyoshi Shin" (The "Second Life" that cannot become a Disney Land (August 3, 2007, in Japanese)), Shin wrote that most of the users who logged in to the Second Life were new users, and most of them gave it up after using it only once. It is rather hard for the newcomers to experience interections when they log in because there are few people there. But, in addition, they uses the Second Life only for trial and may have no intension to interact with other people, so I guess they may avoid interaction even if there are other people.
