Old Medium Meets New in Second Life

Museum1.jpg

You know we're in the midst of an era-shifting marketing mashup when one of the oldest media out there, flip books, gets into bed with over-hyped medium du jour Second Life. That's right, my friends. Flippies, the company that turned that old medium into something new again for marketers has created a Museum of Flip Animation in Second Life.

At the Museum, visitors can check out the early history of animation, play with a flip book machine and check out Flippies' latest creations. "As a long-time collector, being the curator of a museum dedicated to the art of flip animation has always been a dream. Second Life has made it possible for that dream to now become reality." said Flippes President Jeffrey Kay.

You can check out some images of the Second Life installation here.

Yup. I have the press release and stuff over here as well: http://www.knowprose.com/node/16862

It's pretty cool, especially since there is nothing for sale within SecondLife itself.

Taran,

This is far, far, far from the first time things have been for sale in Second Life. The place has its own currency and commerce has been going from SL's early days.
