Virtual worlds have been “the latest thing” since the birth of the World Wide Web in 1993. In this “long view,” Dr. Celia Pearce, author of The Interactive Book (1997), Communities of Play (2009), and co-author of Ethnography and Virtual Worlds (2012) will talk about the history of virtual worlds, trends in emergent behavior, looking at patterns in individual virtual worlds, as well as larger patterns that traverse worlds. This keynote will include the first formal presentation of her co-authored landmark “trans-world” survey published in 2015, as well as historical materials dating back to the earliest virtual worlds conferences in the 1990s.
