DIY Virtual Worlds

The 3B relaunch is expected in May.
If you’re not familiar with 3B, it’s a service that basically grabs the content on your MySpace or other Web page, and uses it to automatically create a 3D space you can navigate as an avatar and invite your friends to. The space that gets created is more or less a room in which the various walls are textured with the images and videos from your site. I like the idea of making it easy to get content into a 3D space where you can hang out with friends, much as Kaneva does, although it remains to be seen which of the many similar services that are now popping up wins this. Snippets from Mark Wallace, at 3pointD.
Here's a survey of four online space platforms, courtesy of Ogoglio.
