This is a fabulous video showing clips from roughly 50 virtual worlds applications (for those who think Second Life is it - this is required viewing). Author Gary Hayes notes, among other things, that "the 'layered-over-the-2d-web' version of these worlds such as RocketOn Exit Reality and Weblin show great usability and promise" and that "Many of these worlds operate without the hype we have seen with Second Life and have slowly been building up large communities. Beware any world that tries to launch on hype." He also links to a useful virtual worlds by sector graph. Via TonNet.
