Shawn Graham (at the Electric Archaeology blog) has uploaded a copy of his paper, at the recent Immersive Worlds conference at Brock. The paper can be downloaded (as a .wav) here: ‘On Second Lives and Past Lifes: Archaeological Thoughts on the Metaverse‘ (via the EA post).
This is obviously a huge and very relevant topic at the moment, since the Digital Classicist Seminar in London yesterday was addressed by Timothy Hill under the title: ‘Wiser than the Undeceived? Past Worlds as Virtual Worlds in the Electronic Media’. (And Dunstan Lowe will also address recreational software in the same series in three weeks time.)
