Here are the Top 5 posts (on this blog) for calendar year 2010. The Top 5 List is in descending order and based on the number of page views per blog posting.
My guess is that many readers built their first virtual booth during 2010. This posting provided tips planning and objectives, content strategy and booth staffing. In addition, it provided tips on content presentation, “search optimization” and how to stand out from the crowd. This posting is part of a broader Virtual Events 101 page that provides tips on virtual events.
This posting did some brainstorming on features that virtual event platforms could provide to bring physical event experiences to virtual events. Then, it covered tips for virtual events, including how to gauge attendee interest, how to connect with interested attendees and how to create better attendee networking.
This was big news back in March, that the famed COMDEX show would return as a virtual event in November 2010. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in store this November at COMDEX Virtual.
Twitter and Facebook have taken the world by storm – this post received a lot of traffic by association. I thought it was logical that 3D virtual world platforms could adopt some of the principles developed by Twitter and Facebook, such as the pervasive “Like” feature from Facebook. I posited on some new concepts, such as closed circuit TV and on-demand TV for virtual worlds.
Finally, I guess I foreshadowed “Second Life Shared Media”, when I suggested that web content be embedded in-world – Linden Lab announced that feature a few short months after my blog posting. More recently, I wrote about Second Life being at an important crossroads.
There’s always something about the “future” that generates interest and curiosity. I’m still a believer in the vision of the future (for virtual events) that I painted here. While none of it has come to fruition, it’s just a matter of time. In the future, that is!
