Welcome SpectatorsA week ago last Friday I was contacted by Shannon Proudfoot, national reporter for the CanWest newspaper chain to comment on the launch of Mario Gerosa's Synthravels, a travel agency providing guided tours to the Kodak Moments of the MMO universe. In addition to Synthravels Mario is attached to some very important work, including the Convention for the Protection of Virtual Architectural Heritage.
Last weekend the story ran in the Ottawa Citizen and the Victoria Times Colonist with many papers across Canada electing to pass on the story, perhaps pushed off the page by the launch of two new video game consoles. However a week (wii-k?) later it was picked up by the Hamilton Spectator and also published on their website.
