Lively: a new way to theo-chat?
Google has done it again. Their latest project is called Lively, which is the first three-dimensional chat room. Users talk to each other via cartoon-like avatars. Users can also create their own chat rooms if they have the time and skills. Any programmers ready to take up the challenge so that theologians can chat together online in a 3-D space? And what would that space look like? Also, since these rooms can be added directly to blogs and other websites, this could add a whole new dimension to theo-blogging and theo-blog-conferences. Unfortunately, those of us who use Macs will have to wait until Google makes it available for the Mac OS.
