Today is a big day.我们已经发布了一个我个人认为对Metaplace和整个虚拟世界都非常重要的功能。截至目前,,you can embed a virtual world on pretty much any webpage,just like any other widget.It's a small embed code,much like a YouTube video — and in fact,it's smaller than a YouTube video in terms of download size.And because of the capabilities Metaplace offers,你可以用它做一些非常有趣的事情:

退房the CNet Webware write-up of the feature here!Or you can前往metaplace wikito learn more about it.

还有一些局限性,of course;you can do communication between the world and the web,但还是有点难。目前还没有SNS应用程序。是的,你现在确实需要一个异地账户。But as more usecases emerge and we get more virtual worlds splattered all over the Net,I expect we'll see these limitations fall away as we keep marching towards making virtual worlds a first-class citizen of the web.

我将讨论这个和其他虚拟世界问题,与Cory Ondrejka(EMI,formerly Linden Lab) at 2pm Pacific onTheStage-我会把它埋在这里!!🙂 In the meantime,stop by my place in Metaplace,嵌入在此处使用Dara Roesner最新发布的Wordpress插件(米基在原地)which makes it incredibly easy to drop a world onto a WordPress post or page:

你妻子和我过去常开玩笑说要制作一个只有版本的混合磁带。All Along the Watchtower,"与Michael Hedges版本,这个亨德里克斯版本,这个Indigo Girls version,这个Richie Havens版本… (I know,我知道,the very notion of a"mixtape"dates us… sorry!)

很难找到很多迈克尔·杰克逊歌曲的封面。这是他死后我一直在想的事情;毕竟,there's all these encomiums calling him the most significant 亚博体育苹果下载musical artist of the last 40 years.然而当你回想起来,这与鲍勃·迪伦这样的人有着截然不同的意义,whose songs have taken on a life of their own well beyond the performances of the original artist.

Oh,there's the few"Billie Jean“版本,当然,and a few others scattered here and there.But by and large,there's a paucity of great Michael Jackson covers.Maybe it's attributable to nobody being able to do it better than he did,但我怀疑这不是原因。To me suggests that there's a paucity of great Michael Jackson歌曲.And yet,the original 亚博体育苹果下载music is still incredibly compelling.

在一台S0NG上进行正确的生产会产生巨大的影响。,而且,改变低音吉他的音调,可以使持久的打击记录和一个褪色的区别。在这个博客上好几次,我提到了盈利公司和音频工程师在寻找热门歌曲的音质特征时所做的歌曲分析工作。所有这些都将导致优化音乐录制以实现特定目标。亚博体育苹果下载

录音当然是捕捉具体性能,and with the rise of the recording industry we got the notion of"演播室乐队"亚博体育苹果下载目标是在演播室创造一场特殊表演的音乐演员,rather than a piece of 亚博体育苹果下载music to be reinterpreted.When we look back at the work of Michael Jackson,接下来的评论总是关于他是一个多么了不起的演员,about the collaboration with Quincy Jones,about the Eddie Van Halen guitar solo in"避开,"about the videos.It was about the shaping of the 亚博体育苹果下载music,不是音乐本身。亚博体育苹果下载

This makes me think that most of the game industry is about 亚博体育苹果下载music production,不是关于写歌。

我通常用沙拉和调料的比喻,说游戏设计就是沙拉:机械和规则的相yabo亚博H5互作用,使游戏成为游戏的数学结构,and not an interactive story or a movie.There are relatively few games on the market,如果我们忽视了敷料。我们可以考虑Far Cry 2andHalf-Life 2因为与众不同表演第一人称枪手的故事,for example,他们的乐队给他们带来了独特的表演品质,呃,teams.

This isn't a bad thing.I've always advocated for more attention given to the"歌曲创作,"because,好,偶尔听到一些新音乐会很高兴。亚博体育苹果下载但是一个伟大的封面艺术,a great performance,不过,这是一门艺术。And we can spot a"卡拉OKversion a mile away,我们不能吗??

Shapeways just announced they can do 3d printing in stainless steel.

It is pretty cheap too!The future is rushing in at an astonishing rate!!

我想我不需要详细说明这件事的重大意义。Just think"各种开源对象,made from most common materials,任何人都可以打印,some assembly required.""

[viaReBang,who tells me"In case you weren't aware,3D打印金属并不是一个新的发展。This is infiltrated.There are laser melted versions."]
