Mobilizing Virtual Worlds Paul Golding Wirelesswanders.com 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
