  3. Well. I just went by the conference center and it looks cool. I’m going to stay up (it starts at midnight in my timezone) and watch the show…

    Every time I click on Teleport, it tells me "location not found" and it’s 3 mintues to start!

    Any help?

  5. Ben Hayat says:

    I tried for half an hour, and could not get in. Waste of time!

    Sorry about the techincal issues getting in… We max’ed out the place and had to turn people away.  I am planning to get the sildes and demo videos posted in the next couple of days…

    Heheh, that was fun, despite the technical difficulties.

    I think my geek thermometor exploded once I sat down in a virtual world to hear a talk on Silverlight.

    It wasn’t perfect, but it was a very interesting experience and as ever 2nd Life delivers more hope for the future than anything totally awesome right now.

    Gutted I wasn’t able to be a part of this… There is a massive delay between me process a movement key and that action being carried out.  Did anyone else get this?  I am in the UK.


    PS if you could do a normal video that would be awesome 😉
