Blue Mars is a new virtual world featuring a state of the art graphics engine and realistic, high definition avatars. It’s currently in open beta and has a growing community of users and developers. I recently posted a couple of articles about Blue Mars on the Virtual Advisor website. The first article is a general introduction to Blue Mars for people interested in electronic music. The other article is an interview with Glenn Sanders, the Community Director for Blue Mars, about what they have in store for people interested in music. I think there’s still a long way to go before Blue Mars takes off as a medium for online music events (maybe a year?), but it’s an exciting prospect.
