David White :: Blog :: Dangerous Demos

April 16, 2008

What are the chances of a demo working that involves a 30 second set-up time and a live voice interview in Second Life?

  A: None
  B: Very Low
  C: Low

      Well I’d go with B on a good day and yet the Open Habitat (formally known as Habitat) demo at the JISC conference yesterday actually worked! Plus most people seemed to understand what the point of the whole thing was.

I just felt I had to tell someone about an incident where all the technology worked. Smile

Visit www.openhabitat.org to see the flow of ideas running through the project at the moment.

  1. This is a postive for the usability of SL and also the flexibility of use.

    Well done David - saw you doing the demo but couldn't get close for the crowd!

  2. Thanks for coming to the demo.

    If only all my demos/presentations worked like this...

  3. Oh. I'm still recovering from the shock of hearing my voice echoing back into my earphones 1 second after I'd started to speak. It felt a bit like an out of body experience, which was slightly disconcerting, to say the least. It was a good test of the technology though.
