2016 PEOPLE: What is "Virtual Outworlding" and how can you use it? Keywords

What is "Virtual Outworlding" and how can you use it?
Here I offer a new way to find things in my blog, Virtual Outworlding: 
Keywords.   The method could be used with any blog on Blogger, provided the author(s) mark the articles with key terms. 

About virtual worlds

  • A virtual world is like a massive computer game with no rules.
  • And no goal until you set your own goal.
  • Yeah.  You do what you please.   
  • It's for people who don't like to be told what to do.


  • Outworlding is about getting the word to the outworld.
  • Inworld refers to a virtual, imaginary world created in a computer.
  • So outworld refers to out in the "real" world.
  • And Outworlding means telling people in the outworld about virtual worlds.
  • Virtual worlds here means the kind of virtual world created by Second Life.

These virtual worlds are characterized by

  • Graphic representations of the environment.
  • Populated by avatars representing the users
  • User-created content (scripted representations of objects)
  • Voice and text communication.
  • Multiple users (avatars) able to move freely in the world.
  • Multiple users communicating with each other.
  • Communities of interest generating most of the activity.
