Disney also is working on something called Virtual Magic Kingdom, an online version of California's Disneyland built on the same technology as multiplayer online games.Link (via Ambiguous)
Rasulo didn't say when the cyberpark would open, but he promised it would be "almost as magical as visiting one of our parks in person."
Update: A Disney insider writes, "Virtual Kingdom is a proposed MMORPG that Disney might launch. I've seen the storyboards and heard the pitch. Think Kingdom Hearts as an MMORPG, not Disneyland, visiting the various 'worlds' of Disney. Possible innovations include visiting physical locations (theme parks) and watching TV or listening to radio for special codes that unlock perks inside the game. Yes, they know Persistent World games are hard. Yes, they know grief players and powergamers will have to be controlled. No, it's nowhere close to being released or even in alpha code."
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
