Last week I announced we would have our second meetup of communicators in Second Life.
The time is drawing near, so if you are even a little bit interested, read on.
This meeting will be a little more formal than our last, but we will have an informal time to network prior to the start of the presentation (12:30 to 1:00 p.m. PT U.S.). I hope that we will end up with some Q & A time at the end.
Text 100 has put together an interesting program, and I thank them for their participation. They are hosting us at their agency in SL and I think it will be useful to listen to what they have been learning. Like everyone, they are on a learning curve with what the “publics” in SL want and expect. I imagine they will have a lot to share.
Here is the agenda for the meeting:
- Welcome/Introductions (Dr. Georg Kolb, Text 100)
- Text 100 machinima clip
- How do we define “communications” in Second Life? (Dr. Georg Kolb, Text 100)
- Audiences in Second Life (Giff Constable, Electric Sheep Company): Internal vs. External; Collective vs. Individual
- Role of Media in Second Life, Reporter Daniel Terdiman of CNET
Date: Thursday, October 12, 2006
Place: Text 100 island in Second Life (Update: for SL regulars, here is a Text 100 SLURL. If you are logged into Second Life you just click on the SLURL and you arrive). We will be in the amphitheater)
Time: 12:30 p.m. PT, networking
1:00 p.m. PT presentation
You can use the World Clock Converter to get the start time wherever you are.
We hope you join us to learn a little more about this interesting social networking tool. And as always, if you haven't been to SecondLife in a while, be sure to visit before tomorrow to install any new security downloads. Also, if you haven't signed up for an account, do it tonight and give yourself and hour or so to familiarize yourself and play with the interface.
When the time comes, log into Second Life, press the Search button, and enter Text 100 in the search field, then hit the transport button.
Please get the word out about the meeting in your own network of communicators, I hope that we will have a good showing there.
