Zachh Barkley is a 21-year entrepreneur [and self-described magic fanatic] who easily could - like some of his peers - play video games all day and goof off killing virtual monsters.
-
Instead he opted to surround himself with capable collaborators at this young age, learn as much as he can about 3D modeling, scripting and marketing, all this with one goal in mind: to shape the digital world just as so many other global residents of Second Life before him.
-
That bringing virtual enjoyment to thousands of avatars all over the world from his humble apartment in Madison, Wisconsin makes him a pretty penny may seem to some like magic, but at the end of the day - it is simple ingenuity & passion at work!
-
Enjoy a journey into a universe full of wonder and...some loud spells!

    Often I have items of interest that don't justify a separate blog or are about continuing events that really should appear over a period of several days.  I  put them in my Google+ stream, but I wanted to make some of them more easily available to my blog readers.   So I have added a section to the organization of my posts: the News and Notes section.

    Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education 2014, Connections

    Narration by CallieDel Boa

    We are all connected. We are connected by our friends and associates yet there is something larger that connected us as we have progressed through the centuries in time and space.
    -
    We are connected to each other biologically, to the Earth chemically to the rest of the universe atomically!
    -
    We have traveled this way before and there is much to be learned.
    -
    And by our connections we celebrated in Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education 2014, Connections.
    -
    Join us and teach us and we will learn, it is a lifetime quest to discover new things.
    -
    Learn these things through Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education 2014 -- Connections!
