This talk was delivered on Friday, March 3rd, at the 2017 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. It is, as the title says, about the many lessons from virtual worlds that carry through into any sort of persistent space, including the ones that we think of geotagged web services.
A video of this talk is available for free on the GDCVault.
A condensed version of the presentation (just a half hour long) was delivered at the Intel Buzz Workshop Los Angeles 2017.
