Place in virtual worlds

  1. 1. Media Places / Virtual Worlds
  2. 3. De Digitale Stad (1994) <ul><li>” DDS has 15,000 accounts. People have occupied the city with their home pages . They have their own Usenet newsgroup hierarchy. The new interface they demonstrated creates a visual representation of The Digital City divided into town squares, literally areas of interest. You point to an area of interest and you can find out what is happening this week in your neighborhood, geographic or virtual. People looking at information in different areas can choose to represent their presence with their e-mail address, and a small .gif. If you want to chat with another DDSer, click on his or her .gif. That means that in the Digital City, people are not all browsing alone through each other's show-and-tell &quot;home pages.” </li></ul><ul><li>Howard Rhinegold </li></ul><ul><li>1995 </li></ul>
