I decided to take a look at Google’s new online world called ‘Lively’. It was a pretty horrible experience! With very mournful looking avatars and cartoon-ish environments. When you type, your text is attached to you by long voice bubbles that give the impression of pinning you to the web page like a dead moth! I think there were a lot of people dropping in to check out Google’s latest application while I was there, and that added some life to the proceedings. However, if too many arrived at one time we became tangled together like some unfortunate collision more suitable for a scene from ‘The Fly’! Here are a few images brought back from ‘Lively’. The name does make me wonder a little… why ever did they call it ‘Lively’?
