This coming Monday we will be joined by Dr. Yesha Sivan, founder of Metaverse Labs (MVL). A pioneer and leader of technologies for knowledge infrastructures, Dr. Sivan's professional experience is in the development of innovative workplaces. Currently he is teaching Metaverse related courses in Afeka College of engineering, Tel Aviv University School of Computer Sciences, and Bar-Ilan University Executive MBA Program.

Dr. Sivan has been very interested interoperability problems like being able to take avatar clothing from Second Life into There. He's also been looking into how virtual world simulations can interface with the real world. We'll be talking with him about defining what virtual worlds are, and how competing companies can develop common standards for virtual environments.

We'll be changing the venue this week, but the location of the event will be announced on Monday morning right here at Metaversed.com.
