I’m speaking on the VC panel at Engage Expo next month, Sept 23-24 in San Jose. I’m on at 1pm on Wed Sept 23.
The agenda is shaping up well – I’m looking forward to the social media and virtual goods tracks especially. This conference used to be called Virtual Worlds Expo, and I think the intersection of virtual worlds and social media is particularly interesting. Zynga’s Yeoville is the best example of a port of a virtual world to a social network, but arguably games like Restaurant City, Rockyou Pets, Farmtown and Farmville are all examples of asynchronous virtual worlds with a strong single player component overlay.
