Networked Collaboration Collaboration

The Networked Collaboration Collaboration has explored a whole host of ideas in the past 6 months. We have held semi regular weekly meetings and through discussion and experimentation have focused on a loose build framework which we are ready to start building.

There are a couple of things guiding our build. We decided to make sure it wasn’t jokey or illustrative. We decided we want a unified piece of art rather than sections created individually and joined together.

Our perspective of Networked Collaboration is from a decidedly creative angle. the build reflects the trepidation of a creative individual in entering in to a collaborative venture and the greater fear of entering the world of Networked collaboration. Our visitor is required to jump in to a forest of unemotional impersonal poles. As the avatar passes each pole a human voice is heard from each one belying the lost in the machine fear and encouraging further exploration. Soon enough the visitor falls through the floor and the forest has become alive with color, objects, more noise and particles reflecting the unexpected immersive sticky human quality of networked collaboration.

We need voices. Preferably Sl sound files with a human voice introducing themselves. This is an opportunity for everyone to get involved. Drop the sounds on Sowa Mai. If you really want to be apart of the build and cant record your voice then we can arrange for a recording session featuring you. We will also collect 9 second sound files through email at Sowamai@gmail.com.

There are a few easy ways to create the sound file.

* If you are in Second Life you can begin an IM to Sowa Mai and press the call button to call directly and leave a message.
(remember to push the talk button at the bottom of your screen)
( if Sowa is inworld it may take a while before the prompt to talk so hang in there 20 secs or so)
* If you have a microphone you can use the option on the website to record your sound and it will be sent by email.
* You can call one of the local numbers listed below (Avaline option) and leave your contribution by telephone.

Call one of the local numbers listed below and leave me a message for inclusion in the project.

at the prompt enter the code 373389
