As Tweeted on the official Metaplace Twitter feed, there is a limited-use beta key available. Go to www.metaplace.com and enter the key MPWELCOME to join the beta program for this virtual world project helmed by industry veterans such as company president Raph Koster. This is a limited-time key, so once it runs out, it’s gone — good luck!
Disclaimer: I work for Metaplace. I am just spreading a key that has been publicly announced — you’re not getting a special edge through this! And of course, Metaplace has nothing to do with this blog and doesn’t condone or… yada yada, you know what I’m saying.
