"Even in its nascent form, maybe virtual reality will change our definition
of what’s “real” in the first place."

Hi all, I am enjoying very much Alan's words (and of course I also
appreciate the others who are making him talk). For me he says things which
make me think in different ways than I am used to. He made me remember his
talk last year during the cyposium organised with a large group of other
people interested in cyberformance, networked performance, or whatever you
want to call it. (it's still online
http://www.cyposium.net/selected-presentations/sondheim/ )

Tomorrow evening in the frame of A symposium on remote collaboration
organised by Upstage <http://upstage.org.nz/blog/?page_id=2> and SignalRaum
Munchen for the Upstage’s 10th birthday event I will give a talk "*While
passionate, persevering, trusting and with all sense**s “on” you need to
accept …" *that will touch upon some of the things you discuss here. If you
are in München please join us there but you can also assist and participate
online. More information here

I hope some of you will join us online (my talk is at 8h10 European time).

My reaction to the article "Making Virtual Reality Less Virtual" : it's not
first of all the body language, but more the agency you can "feel" which
make the virtual real.
