Came across this project on 3pedia (another interesting resource). The premise of Ogoglio is this, “Many people now start their careers with a deep understanding of cooperative 3D communities like World of Warcraft, but when they enter the workplace they are handed email and a shared calendar and are expected to teach themselves how to be productive. Instead of forcing people to limit their communication to these thin channels, the Ogoglio project will provide community workspaces with the planning and coordination tools which have proven to be effective in multiplayer online games.”
