R3 makes same mistake twice

Early april I went to a seminar on Second Life in the Netherlands. Today I missed out on the next big thing in the Netherlands, the Second Life seminar organised by Euroform.

Fortunately I received some good updates while I was working hard on a RL thing for a change.

It seems I haven't missed too much as there were several speakers present who were also present at the april session (like the University of Amsterdam and Dutch Stock Exchange) and the guys from Lost in the Magic Forrest were again. I've probably missed out on a few interesting stories from speakers from Adformatie, Ymerce and Essent.

The one thing remarkable is that for the second time in a row, Justin Bovington, CEO of Rivers Run Red failed to appear. There have been many people wanting to hear him, and paying a lot of money to do say, who didn't leave satisfied today. These sort of misfires spread quicly in the SL community making several large Dutch companies switching to local content developers.

Indeed it was a pity, I myself would have enjoyed meeting Justin in the real world. However, Essent presented their case (and what a nice case it was if I may say so myself hehe), Yme obviously had a nice story and ABN AMRO improvised a short speech about their presence and the Young Professionals Island (wow lucky us)...
What i found most interesting is that despite the negative publicity in the Netherlands last month there is still great interest for virtual worlds, or even better: more serious interest....
