On 29 February 2004, I hadn’t heard of Second Life, had dimly heard of machinima, would have thought a mashup involved potatoes and turned my nose up at computer games. Flicker was what candles did.
On 29 February 2008, I was dancing, laughing and talking in Second Life on the island of jokaydia (SLURL: http://slurl.com/secondlife/jokaydia/100/150/23/ ) where I rent a plot of virtual land. I used a virtual camera to record the event so that I could mash it up as a machinima after having bought virtual sushi to entertain my guests. I was also sending live photos to Flickr.
On 29 February 2012, what currently unheard of things will we be doing and experiencing?
