Ever combined the Web, virtual worlds like Second Life, World of Warcraft, Google Earth, Nintendo, Xbox Kinect, Oculus Rift, Facebook, Moore's Law and the unfolding human experience into a single thought (which, perhaps, you then Twittered over your iPhone)? Working on an art or web or game or virtual world project? Have an avatar? Are an avatar? Contemplating the Singularity? Think video games can save the world or that the world is already a video game? (Or think that's the worst thing you've ever heard?) Does Snow Crash ring any bells even if you're way too cool to find it fascinating in public?

Fans of history and the future who are interested in the march of the web into the world and the world into the web unite! Meeting for dinner, drinks, talks, networking, workshopping, fun, scheming, and events. For people actively working on, researching, or interested in creative, mixed-reality, augmented reality, lifelogging/streaming, social web, video game, virtual worlds, mapping, simulation, internet of things, haptic devices, new interfaces, or 3D printing or projects.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
