Areae - Raph Koster's relatively new company has launched Metaplaces, a mark up language for the creation of one off virtual communities. The system is exceptionally because it looks to create unique URLs for every item created for the virtual items. Koster envisions users coming to a Metaplace world by clicking on a link in a Web page. That link launches a page where the user finds herself inside a world, perhaps using a default avatar, but no log-in or registration is immediately required. Metaplaces will create a development tool for deeper interactive experiences with ideas, products, or people. The prospects are limited only by the desire for traffic and creativity. My curiosity will be satiated when users begin to experiment with the tool and report back out the stickiness of the experience and their own ability to drive users there.
