New worlds will our visions ever merge?

Science Circle Open Sim on Reaction Grid, just like building in second life, buildcreated by Pamala CliftHad a lovely discussion today with another passionate virtual world education advocate. He showed me Virtlantis and shared with me his vision of open collaboration. 

Seems there is quite a few of us wishing to see function follow form. 

So many new worlds jumping up trying to communicate how engaging the immersive factor is for experiential learning. SpotON3D, Reaction Grid, Active Worlds, Hypergrid's multiple worlds. We all start our own worlds with our own goals, and I think that is where we are failing.

The motherland of Second Life might be ending, (if my inside sources are correct) within a year, or it will evolve. Where will all these orphans of the vision unite after the homeland dissolves?

Is it our nature to collaborate? The seduction of creation sometimes takes precedence(click the link at the end of this blog for the video) as the urge to see our vision come to life...but after that? Where will it all go? Who or what will be the hub? Will there be a hub? Or will we all be "in the cloud"?

What do you think? Below is my little vision and the seduction of being the creator for the Science Circle's new opensim venture.

I wonder what the 'right' way will turn out to be?

As a philosopher I truly do not believe there is a right way for everyone, maybe from one perspective you can say that was right or wrong for me.. ? We have to be fluid and expect there is going to be a lot of things that we don't expect and just be comfortable going with it.
