From 1pm to 1:10 pm yesterday afternoon three avatars tried inexpertly to communicate with one another in 4 D, several more wandered the hallways and lobbies of the Riftmax virtual theatre trying to find the right room for the press conference, and at least one became irate. In the real world, a collection of fans and bloggers watched two hapless dudes try to navigate two realities at once. The world’s first virtual reality press conference had begun.
If you’re anything like me, you spent last night prone on the couch watching as many of the awesome and terrible Canadian video submissions that went live last night on the CBC comedy coup.

One of them is just two guys smashing glasses and porcelain figurines.
