Join us for a special date and time as Metanomics broadcasts live from Gametech, the annual military conference on games and virtual worlds for training and simulation. Virtual worlds have become an important technology to support training and community outreach. But over the past several years, changes in the virtual world industry have opened up new choices while closing others. Advances like the consumer adoption of Microsoft Kinect, widening use of Unity 3D, and the coming changes to the browser with the launch of HTML-5 and WebGL are opening up a new range of options. Join Douglas Maxwell, Science and Technology Manager for Virtual World Strategic Applications at the U.S. Army Simulation & Training Technology Center (STTC) as he welcomes a panel to explore current and future trends in virtual worlds.

Metanomics: Feb.21 | Robert Bloomfield hosts Paul Ford, Writer and Web Native

Each man seemed to wear a trucker hat; each woman seemed to wear a little T-shirt and was laden with 10 pounds of accessories.
