Yesterday's Inside the Avatar Studio show turned out to be a pretty enjoyable journey covering a lot of interesting topics. Phelan kept the conversation moving in unanticipated directions. One main thread was that the differences between virtual and physical experience are surface deep and that living consciously is the key to productive use of either domain. Another recurring theme was around the influence of tools and technology on the creative process. Here's the whole show. Unfortunately, it doesn't include the additional hour and a half free-form conversation that followed. If anyone snagged it and posts it somewhere, I'll add it.
