Weekend Whimsy cites PookyMedia for Machinima

This week brought a wonderful mention by a great publication, THE METAVERSE JOURNAL. This online paper sets a great standard for reportage of important Virtual World news.

They report top quality articles relevant to what is happening with 3D Avatar based environments across the board. They have a whitepaper out now I recommend - The agenda-setting challenges for virtual worlds: a discussion paper.

Daily PWN Weekly Review Talks to Pooky Amsterdam

Pooky gets a chance to talk to another treet.tv host in this fascinating look behind the screen. Talking tinies and virtual talent, we get some insight that we would not normally have. Congratulation Zen Paine on having such a cool show - give us each day - our Daily Pwn. (Can anyone tell me why PWN rhymes with Zone instead of lawn?)

PookyMedia Films at Shanghai World Expo 2010

The first life curator Cristina García-Lasuén owner of the OPEN THIS END Second Life group and also known as AinoBaar in Second Life, approached Spanish officials for the World Expo several months ago with the purpose of bringing Second Life machinima to the attention of a greater audience. She was successful as they granted her several hours per week to display machinima simultaneously over five four metre wide HD screens which are attached to a structure called the "Air Tree" built specifically for the Expo at the Madrid Pavilion.

Wikipedia gives this info for the Expo:
"More than 190 countries and more than 50 international organizations have registered to participate in the Shanghai World Expo, the largest ever. China expects to receive almost 100 foreign leaders and millions of people from across the world to come and visit the World Expo. More than 70-100 million visitors are expected to visit the expo, the largest in history."

As Bryn Oh said on her blog “Whats even better is that the Madrid Pavilion is right beside the Shanghai Pavilion so we should be right in the hub of it all. Even if a mere 1% of the 70-100 million guests pay attention then we are doing ok.”

PookyMediaFilms has “I’m Too Busy To Date Your Avatar”
Showing at the Madrid Pavillion. Here is the full program:
