This is very exciting. I am actually starting to blog more about blue mars myself and I am looking forward to what Blue Mars has the potential to be. YAY

I still don't quite understand Blue Mars.

Is it like a 3d version of metaplace? are worlds connected by anything more than just avatars? I walked for a bit and found barren lands, endless empty buildings and no SL/metaplace style inventory or currency going on.

Dunno, I tried walking around but it was a barren laggy piece of crap so I logged out and deleted it from my system

Currency and whatnot is just launching. And I suppose that yes, some comparisons to the way Metaplace places hang together wouldn't be inappropriate.

Blue Mars is really at the moment a very early beta software. To judge it now is far far to early. It could end up being something really good, but it needs more work.

FWIW, according to an email I received, but cannot confirm, Metaplace is closing 1 JAN 2010. I checked the web site (still up), but could find no mention of the closing.

We've confirmed it: http://www.massively.com/2009/12/21/metaplace-announces-january-1st-shutdown/

We've got some additional coverage/observations on that later today.
