Who, What, Why?
Enterprise uses of Immersive Environments and Virtual World technology for collaboration. As CTO of vComm Solutions and co-founder of Flying Island I'm particularly interested in the ways that collaborative 3D immersive environments might help bring dispersed teams together

View Article  IBM Releases Sametime 3D Virtual Meetings
IBM have launched their OpenSim-based 3D meeting solution integrated with Lotus Sametime.  It is much more impressive than I had expected judging from the details and video posted here, and could be quite compelling for organisations that already have an investment in SameTime.  Of course, for anyone who doesn't, well I'd recommend Roobaab - we will be providing many of the same meeting features, and others, all tightly integrated to a unique really useful content management system.
View Article  Clever Zebra join the OpenVCE Collaboration Project
The Clever Zebra guys have joined the OpenVCE project which aims to proved an open source set of tools and artifacts for collaboration, meetings and training in 3D spaces well integrated with traditional 2D tools like blogs and wikis.  See Nick Wilson's post for more details.

This interests me greatly as there will be significant overlap with some work that we're doing to provide an integrated system for taking content from a collaborative 2D content management system and allowing the collaborators to launch a meeting in a 3D space (currently SL, soon to be OpenSim too)  taking the content with them to display on a scrollable, clickable browser, and having tight integration and archiving of the meeting chat with the original CMS.  All part of a big push to make 3D environments easier to access and really useful. I'll be fascinated to see what come out of the OpenVCE project.
