Amazing post! Very interesting perspective. I invite you to read the comments in this post.
"Want to know what the blog-o-sphere will look like in 2015? Look at the virtual worlds of today’s Massively Multiplayer Online Games (MMOGs) like Second Life. Want to know why everyone will have a blog tommorrow, just like everyone has an email address today? Because your blog will be your avatar in virtual reality. And you can’t play in virtual reality without an avatar. So you’re gonna need a blog, baby. When you blog today, you are participating in a Massively
Multiplayer Online Conversation (MMOC). Today’s text blogs are like the
text-based MUD games of yesteryear. These MUDs eventually grew up to become today’s 3-d MMOGs. And inna future, blogs will grow up from text to audio to video. And blogs will come to resemble the avatars in today’s MMOGs."
Interesting post on next generation virals. How long do we have to wait for chatbots integrated in these campaigns? And how long do we have to wait before GPS GeoWeb data is integrated in these virals?
"Dreamworks has created a viral marketing site for the horror film sequel "The Ring 2" (click on England to see how the campaign works). Here is Adfreak's description of how the viral campaign works: You
enter a friend’s e-mail address and cell-phone number. The site then
sends the friend an e-mail, inviting him or her to view the Ring Two
trailer online. As the video plays, the friend’s cell phone rings, and
a voice on the other end whispers “seven days”—which, if the friend has
seen the Ring movies, might just prompt a soiling of the friend’s trousers."
