The Royal Press Office

Her Royal Highness has demonstrated interest in supporting a healthy multidimensional expansion of Virtual Worlds.

This week The Princess of Yaximixche was amongst the avid audience present at the public event "Life 2.0 Summit" produced by C M P T e c h n o lo g y/Dr. D o b b ' s Journal. During four intensive days, Her Royal Highness participated actively in different sessions despite the time difference between Europe and USA and received answers to the following questions:

-What could be the platform business models that will emerge when Virtual Worlds meet Augmented Reality?
-What could be the likely business models when the different Virtual Worlds platforms reach standard protocols?
-Could be possible that we will see in the future Real Life robots controlling avatars and what will be the effect on Virtual Worlds?
-What other metrics will be necessary for monitoring sims and will search engines provide statistics of keywords?
-Why is important for companies like [name of the speakers company] to mimic Real Life activities into Virtual Worlds?
-What challenges have companies like [name of the speakers company] found in communicating their message in Second Life?
-How many visitors or customers are using [name of the speakers company] facilities for business?

The Princess of Yaximixche met Real Life and Second Life developers and received multiple and constants words of support and encouragement for her environment activities in Second Life. After the event every day, Her Royal Highness provided guided tours to interested visitors who requested to have a special visit at The Palace of Yaximixche showing the activities of HRH Princess Manqo Foundation. Her Royal Highness was very pleased for the good organisation of this event despite technical limitations and constant sim crashes, however, she was also concerned of the rudimentary and unwelcoming treatement to international members of the audience by the committee officers. According to evidences, organisers did not warn neither provided a clear guidelines of behaviour at the beggining of the event. Her Royal Highness was not exempt of this appalling treatment:

1.One example was the initial request of the committee who asked the audience during breakfast sessions to wear a "complicated-to-use" nametag that caused spamming in the main channel during talks and that caused annoyance and dispair in attendees. Even Her Royal Highness provided caring support and guidance to citizens who requested for help to wear such device. As everybody was wearing a tag, The Princess of Yaximixche decided to wear her own environment awareness non-for-profit tag without causing any spam in the main channel. However, the committee requested Her Royal Highness to remove it as for their perception "she was selling".

2.Also sessions of Q&A during talks and tours were completely chaotic and many questions were left without answer causing frustration in many attendees. Her Royal Highness repectfully asked one or two questions when the audience was also asking during these sessions. The committee unexpectly and irrespectfully requested Her Royal Highness by private IM "Manqo ask questions at the end ... you are causing too many disruptions".

3.During the event many avatars showed their creative side by wearing attractive costumes such as oversized hats. Even one of the event organisers did. For this reason, Her Royal Highness considered appropriate in wearing her haut couture hats receiving a lot of praise from attendees for her demuring and classic style. Her Royal Highness seated on the edge of corners to avoid visual disturbance when she considered one of The Princess of Yaximixche´s hats could cause any obtstruction, and also she requested beforehand comments from the committe on this.

4.The event had an approximate audience of 65, 55, 60, and 42 avatars from Monday to Friday. A similar number of audience enjoyed scripting and sculpty lectures during weekend sessions. The Princess of Yaximixche was interested in meeting and talking to all of them, however, establishing private conversation during presentations certainly could be distractive and during the breakfast networking sessions there was not enough time available. For this reason Her Royal Highness requested friendships after reading their interesting avatar profiles in order to maintain contact for further communication. She was delighted that many of them joined HRH Princess Manqo Foundation group and visited this website to learn more about Her Royal Highness activities in Second Life. Due the existence of multiple tags in such a small amphitheatre, certainly it was a difficult task to avoid duplicated requests of friendships to the same person in many cases. Her Royal Highness also received many times duplicated requests that she patiently accepted or rejected it. However, new friendships were also on hand during tours. Her Royal Highness received a considerably big number of teleporting requests from her new acquitances and she gladly accepted to provide this support to fellow attendees as the committee showed a lack of planning or rehearsal for these learning journeys held at sponsors facilities.

The committee was more concerned in pleasing their sponsors marketing objectives rather than being good hosts by creating a unforgettable experience for visitors and potential customers. Some attendees had to use alternative avatars in order to continue in this event as the committee decided unilaterally that some questions or behaviours were not appropriate. Additionally, the committee did not provide any justification of avatar ban cases or simply they refuse replying to any request for explanation.

Her Royal Highness was delighted in learning about the future of Virtual Worlds from experts such as Xconomy, Acceleration Studies Foundation (Ogoglio, Photosynth), Forterra Systems, SLBrowser, Gridocity, Linden Lab, Electric Sheep, Code4 Software, Sun Microsystems, Clear Ink, Eolus, Involve, ESC, AWA, IBM, libSecondLife, Croquet Consortium (Croquet video), Maya Realities, Borland Codegear, Tateru Nino, Multiverse, Pixeltrix, Questar, Intel, and Weather Channel. She also praised the interesting guided tours around different successful Real Life companies established in Second Life.
