A new project was revealed some time ago. City Space is a new project displaying a very impressive render of a 3D virtual world by LivePlace.com.

What's known about this is the WHOIS lists the domain owner as Brad Greenspan, who's one of the MySpace co-founders. This project is running on OTOY, the 3D engine that renders graphics in the cloud. The technology allows relatively weak computers (or even mobile phones) to display incredibly detailed graphics comparable to those seen in Hollywood movies or high-definition games.

The project really has astounding incredibly detailed graphics (I think they even kick PS3 graphics). Also, since the project is using the OTOY engine, all rendering occurs server side, which allows virtually anyone with a working PC to participate. What's amazing about this, is the fact it runs directly from the browser! No plugins to download, no clients to install, no nothing! Which makes this pretty much a fairly tale! But I'm hoping the project pulls through.

My thoughts are that this project (I call it project since I don't know what it is yet!) is the next step in social networking (Hence the title of the post). I think if you connect the dots, you'll find that this is the next MySpace project. Considering that the domain, LivePlace.com, is owned by a co-founder of MySpace's, and it requires no installation (which almost crosses it out as a game), it's the next MySpace SecondLife-style!
