Kaneva is an online 3D virtual world that also spans the 2D web by integrating social networking, shared media, and online community interaction. Users can sign up for free and then easily jump between Kaneva's web browser-based social networking experience and the site's connected 3D virtual world. On Kaneva, people can create their own profiles, join groups, meet others, and just generally interact via messaging, blogs, tags, and media sharing (free sharing of users' photos, videos, music, games, etc.) This 2D part of Kaneva's world then links directly to Kaneva's 3D virtual world. Here, users can create their own 3D avatars, personalize their homes, accessorize their 3D worlds however they seem fit, and meet other people via their avatars. Of note, Kaneva recently received an award for the most innovative virtual world site at Dealmaker Media's Under the Radar Conference. In June 2007, Kaneva also became the first virtual world site to integrate synchronzied viewing of YouTube videos into their 3D virtual world. Kaneva is self-funded by co-founder and CEO Christopher Klaus, who in 1994 had founded Internet Security Systems - a company which IBM bought in 2006 for a cool $1.6 billion.
