I attended the Federal Consortium for Virtual Worlds (FCVW) Conference 2010 held at the National Defense University at Fort McNair in Washington DC on May 13-14, 2010.
This was an amazing event: mind-opening, insightful and energizing. It was a privilege to interact with an eclectic group of virtual world experts, innovators and collaborators from US government agencies and companies from all over the Unites States and beyond.
I thought it would be worthwhile to pen some quotable quotes (to the best of my memory and with some “wordsmith” license) from a number of conference presenters:
“The main problems that vex society today are primarily social involving networks of people.”
“Natural problems like finding oil under the ocean can be easily solved.”
“Interactivity equals data selection.”
“Listen to and be one with the spirit of the data.”
“An artistic approach helps you engage with the data.”
“Use simulation to tap the emotions of presence in virtual worlds.”
“Effective simulations need contextual activity that mimics the workplace.”
“Knowledge management is an oxymoron. Knowledge can only be enabled.”
“Content is king. Context is the kingdom.”
