2016 PEOPLE: HELP: Interested in virtual worlds? Don't start there. Start with people. Metaverse communities

Interested in virtual worlds? Don't start there.    
Start with people.   Metaverse communities
Virtual worlds are made of people.  Find out what happens in virtual worlds by listening to the people.  You can listen to them in Google communities. Just join a community that interests you.     You can see the pictures they take.  You can see the videos they make.  You can talk to the people there.  You can even get help in coming into a virtual world. 
-
  • Virtual worlds are really made of people.  So start with  people.  
  • Those avatars have real people behind them.  
  • And we talk a lot in public--on the web.
  • So drop in on us, see what we are doing.
  • You'll find out why we are interested in virtual worlds.
  • Google communities are a good place to start.  
  • After the break, I give links to some of the communities in virtual worlds
  • See if any of those match your interests, join them, ask what is going on
  • To search this page on Google Chrome, press Ctrl+f.  Type search term in bar, upper right.
