Project Thesis

Thesis candidates

  • The integration of Voice in SL can result in varying degrees of discrimination against the residents, and this project will address issues regarding the impact of Voice on the social network.
  • Ceding development to 3rd party voice tools and developers, cedes control over the content and introduces the risk of censorship and limits on expression. Linden must develop voice in-house with the same participatory, optional limitations used in the existing modes of expression.
  • Linden must NOT impose their Western morality on the implementation of Voice in SL. Voice is a multi-cultural, international and liberating technology which must be implemented within the cultural and moral confines of the home country. This development is best left to 3rd parties in a similar manner to the existing cultural grids.
  • Voice is a boundary shattering introduction to Second Life. Anyone who can speak and use a joystick has as much a right to participate in SL as the texting, literate, educated minority. Linden must not only encourage the rapid, accelerated development of Voice but also the development of translation engines in SL to embrace the developing world and encourage communication across borders and cultures.

Heed Typers When Voice Comes

Hypothesis: Voice is coming to SL and will bring new capabilities

Problem: Discrimination of typers in type-voice coexsiting environment

1.Typers are slower, making it more difficult to fit into conversations
2.Voice users may feel annoyed by chat windows, or get used to minimizing the window
3.Clash of typing sounds with voice

Why should we think of protecting the rights of typers?

1. May not be able to speak (mute, soar throat)
2. Situation where you cannot use voice (office)
3. Personal reasons (Don't like sound of voice/doesn't suit identity of avatar/want to keep level of privacy/stutter,lisp, accent)
4. Multitasking (chat while listening to music, etc.)
5. Efficiency in certain situations(Group chats, lectures)

Questions to Ask Ourselves

1. Who should be given the right to decide whether the zone is voice, text, or voice-text?
2. How can we create awareness?
3. Are we calling for technical attention from Linden or social attention from residents?

Solution/Action: "Heed Typers" Campaign?

Presentation Method Ideas:

1. Create rooms with streaming audio boxes.
2. Create machinima
