Virtual World Television: The Blog


As I’ve discussed elsewhere on this blog (such as here and here), I’ve undertaken a new project with producer Pooky Amsterdam to look into the phenomenon of virtual world television.  As part of this study, I’ve interviewed over two dozen producers from the virtual world Second Life.  Pooky and I have been gathering information about their productions, and the interviews are currently being transcribed.

As part of the research communication for this study, along with standard academic papers and a potentially multimedia book, we will be telling their stories

of being producers on a devoted blog, called simply Virtual World TelevisionOnce the transcriptions are ready, the blog will contain posts to relay each producer’s experience, from his/her perspective, and with links to his/her work.  We wanted to have a forum that was not purely academic but would allow for people to fully experience what the producers have done and why.  For the producers’ stories to be told, without a layer of academic interpretation.

Stay tuned to the blog Virtual World Television for these stories and more.
