sounds like the start of a bad joke – what happens when you mix psychologists, a business school, and $1.7 million dollars?
well . . . when the standardised testing group behind the GMAT has an Ideas to Innovation Challenge program and has money to burn you might end up with a very expensive virtual world!
the Rady School of Management, part of University of California-San Diego has partnered with Rembisz & Associates, a consulting firm of psychologists and management experts, to build a virtual world that “could easily cross international boundaries”
and they’re spending $1.7 million US dollars on it! o_O
pardon my french – holy @!#&!!!
dang, is it just my cynical nature or does this sound like one expensive @$$ deployment of OpenSim?
i mean i know that the “international” aspect of it could be the big dollars (snap, Enclave Harbour and Kitely are international too, hmm . . )
hey! anyone want to buy a fresh and international version of sim-on-a-stick? get it today for half a million, what a deal! =p
