Tis is the Youtube Edit:
I made this comment on their blog:
I Love It! Very impressive! I make videos of Blue Mars, have been for the past year and I am usually the first when a new city comes on line. I am not an employee of Avatar Reality so I do tend to shoot from the hip, I speak my mind in the Forums . I am a [Guide] . I am also a born and bred Londoner. So there’s my CV. You have been developing this for a while, it shows. Your beginning tutorial conforms with proper educational learning techniques. Perfect. You are Business Oriented, excellent, lets make money. Your design and features are NOT second life, I make this point as you have adopted the innovative design and ethos of Blue Mars. It is Not a game, you understand and demonstrate this. I call it a chat room with nice curtains, guess I have to upgrade to Conference and Design Centre now. Your Teleportation system is superb. In every other city in Blue Mars I have eschewed tps as I like to explore on foot. (I do like flying though so perhaps incorporate a Hover Spawn) Your City is the first in BM where I will teleport by choice. Congratulations Dudes (non gender specific) and Welcome To Blue Mars. Be Proud! Your video is being uploaded as we speak philipjamesbryan on Youtube

P.S. I design web sites if you need a hand, we can do a Quid Pro Quo … do get a favicon for your site.. it takes 30 seconds and its free…
The Conference started just after 9 am UK Time, this is the second hour.
For the sake of brevity, I reduced the quality and because I encountered a hardware glitch on my computer which was recording the event after 36 minutes, the video is incomplete. I was watching it on my 21 inch widescreen monitor the software was running on my 14 inch linked secondary monitor. Remember and note this :
- I was in Ireland conecting to a server in Hawaii
- Jim was in Honolulu
- DLabs were in the UK streaming the conference to the server in Hawaii
- One (and there were others) Mako was in Australia, we chatted during the conference
- There was a live audience in the UK watching us
- I think Jims presentation slides were on a computer in the UK and he was manipulating them from Hawaii?
The message? One World interacting in real time via The Internet in a 3d Environment. I have seen the future and, friends, I am living it. Actually what we were doing was: We were sharing one networked computer
I have been part of The Blue Mars Community for almost exactly one year. It has not been a wasted year, it has assured my future in the 21st Centuary. I fell proud and honoured, a little humbled but mainly very very excited.. You weren’t there? Shame…..
P.S. Bitchy on her perch in Welcome wearing her halloween costume. One guy rushed up to look at her…. face. Said she was pretty…
