Presentation Tidbits 2

More CIS 1055 presentation notes:

  • Skype pronounced sky-pee.
  • Email is the most common form of communication. (Take that, speech!)
  • During a presentation on Second Life, the group played a video of the world-building model on YouTube where “Starry Starry Night” was playing in the background.  The scene being built in the video was Van Gogh’s Starry Starry Night and the entire purpose of the video was to show the ability to recreate real-world spaces.  The group muted the sound and stopped it 3/4ths of the way through right before the whole thing came together.  Ghaa…..
  •  World of Warcraft was described as a MOOG.  Synthesizer or MMO?
  • Land size was expressed in “em twos” instead of meters squared.
