Kasey_Ch8_Walker_I

I have always had a problem with people shunning the real world for an online fantasy. Maybe this is because I love to go out and meet new people anytime I get the opportunity, or maybe because it's not real - I don't know.

In any case, after giving this crazy contraption a shot I found that Online Caroline is a lot like that clingy friend who tells you WAY too much up front. That annoys me.

I would however, LOVE to see an interface like this used in tutorials and so on. Depending on your level of knowledge in a program it could give you hints, e-mail instructions and so on. Maybe an internet mechanic type of thing. I also think it would be great for online retail - like a pop-up salesman or something.

An Online Caroline like interface can be used for very practival purposes, it just seems silly to me to waste such a promising technology on something like this.

Although it could be used for "very practical purposes" I think it could also be used again blur the lines of ethical advertising.

I also don't understand the concept of simulating the real world, when the real world is right outside the door for you to enjoy in person.

I also concur with Nick, but I also agree with the first 1/3 of your stuff Kasey. This is why I continue my protest of Facebook.
