The Metaverse Journal is a site devoted to bringing an Australian perspective to virtual worlds. Launched in November 2006, we believe that virtual worlds at the very least may bring a new approach to internet-based interaction, and we want to cover their evolution. Virtual worlds may provide some of society\’s biggest opportunities and greatest challenges in coming years – it\’s an area worth keeping informed about.

Lowell\’s real-world typist is technology writer David Holloway. He has been involved with virtual worlds since heavy use of a MOO in 1993. David consults to business, government and media on virtual worlds (contact David for further information) and is currently writing a book on the topic.
