Why Are Virtual Worlds Different

Why are virtual worlds different? Second Life et al DO feel different but why? This video is a good start on explaining that.
YouTube Video here.
Virtual Social Worlds and the Future of Learning
“Dr. Tony O’Driscoll describes the 7 Sensibilities that Differentiate Virtual Social Worlds from other interactive media and makes the argument that these sensibilities provide us with unprecedented freedom to create true experential learning opportunities.”
The Sense of Self
The Death of Distance
The Power of Presence
The Sense of Space
The Capability to Co-Create
The Pervasiveness of Practice
The Enrichment of Experience
I like it.
