Goodbye Google Lively
Goodbye Google Lively from Wavecritterz! :)
I had to say Goodbye to one of the greatest Internet concepts to grace the stage, Google Lively :) I have enjoyed Google Lively as I know many fans of Google Labs products have. I also completely understand the ending as the creation, existence, and new beginnings of a plethora of Virtual Worlds unfold into the vast reaches of the World Wide Web.
Here is part of the post from the Official Google Blog:
"That's why, despite all the virtual high fives and creative rooms everyone has enjoyed in the last four and a half months, we've decided to shut Lively down at the end of the year. It has been a tough decision, but we want to ensure that we prioritize our resources and focus more on our core search, ads and apps business. Lively.com will be discontinued at the end of December, and everyone who has worked on the project will then move on to other teams.
We'd encourage all Lively users to capture your hard work by taking videos and screenshots of your rooms.

We just completed Blogs and Social Networks Virtual Worlds Online Radio show and is recorded to listen in anytime.
For those of you who have not been to visit Google Lively yet, you do have until December 31st to take a peek or check out these screen shots. I went and spent some time to capture some memories:
