Godzilla dwarfs the IMA cabin
  • Replica of this cabin on the web at: IMA web-world
  • Web-worlds are limited, so you have to stay inside the cabin there.
  • But it is easy to get to and you can move around.  
  • You can talk to people there if there are people. 
  • You may need to bring a friend to have someone to talk to.
IMA meeting place

  • That little blue rectangle is surrounded by seats.
  • We (as avatars) sit around the pool and discuss our projects.
  • Yeah, just like a business meeting.  
  • Except we don't have to dress up and it takes about 30 seconds to get there.
  • We can talk, pass web links, show bullet points and talk about them.
  • What else do you do in a business meeting?
  • Meet this way a couple of times and it starts to feel like a business meeting.
A helicopter inspects Godzilla
  • That sail is on a catamaran by Kayaker Magic
  • His boats are all over the virtual worlds because they work so well.
  • If you enlarge the image, you can see us sitting around the pool.
  • Godzilla does not scare us.  Avatars have superpowers.
