A virtual residency

On Marian Island

Marian Island is a four-region space for students and friends of Dr. Eileen O'Connor to visit, work within, and enjoy. The nascent Institute for New Paradigms, an advanced technology think-tank, meets here too. Friendly visitors are welcome too.  

    Go there


    A real presentation 
    in digital space
    • A professor is showing slides and talking about them.
    • The professor is real, the slides are real.  
    • And I am real. I sent my digital self there to represent me.
    • But I am seeing and hearing the presentation.  
    • Just as I would if I had driven there.  But more comfortably
    The screen from a different viewpoint
    • My view is not limited to where I can put my head.  
    • I can get out of my digital body and get any viewpoint in the scene.
    • You can have an out-of-body experience in a digital world.
    About 30 people in attendance
    • Open air presentation. 
    • We don't worry about rain.
    • Digitals control the rain here.
    • In a virtual world there is virtually no weather.
    Lots of information 
    on side panels
    • In the digital world, panels are not limited to showing text.
    • They can also send you to web sites where you can find  more information.
    • So the place can be full of information even where there is no presenter.
    Avatars need not look human
    • There are free avatars that your imagination may prefer.
    • In a place that is not "real," you don't have to look real.
    Lunchtime in the middle east
    • If you were presenting about the middle east, you might prefer a place like this.
    There could be instruction here
    • Those posters could provide instruction and web links.

    • We digitals go for diversity
