Presentation given by Paul Golding at O2 Innovation Day to advocate extending the O2 brand to include connecting virtual people and objects, not just real people and real objects. Presentation was by invitation and was part of mock 'Dragon's Den' competition to provoke thought and ideas.

Mobilizing Virtual Worlds Paul Golding Presentation at O2 Innovation Day 16th March 2009 Tuesday, 17 March 2009

Disclaimer • These slides were produced to present at the O2 Innovation Day (16-Mar-2009) as part of a mock “Dragon’s Den” competition. I was invited to present on this theme and be an advocate for the idea, as if pitching it for serious consideration by the operator. So, consider this more of a thought experiment to provoke thought and discussion. I am a big believer in the future of virtual worlds and virtual technologies, but I am not convinced at all that O2 or any mobile operator has much of a role in the virtual/augmented reality ecosystem at present. Feel free to agree or disagree. • Credits: K Zero for their virtual worlds radar chart. Tuesday, 17 March 2009
