Second Thursday in Second Life has become a great way for communication professionals, both with limited and broad experience, to discuss the possibilities of virtual environments and how public relations fits into the equation.
When: Thursday January 11, 2007
Where: Crayonville (click here for the SLURL or log into Second Life and search for Crayonville
When: 8 a.m. SLT/PST (complete listing of timezones)
We will start the conversation at Crayonville then take a tour of the iVillage loft.
Crayonville’s C.C. Chapman will be our host.
We will be joined by Giff Constable from the Electric Sheep Company and possibly Marc Schiller of Electric Artists to discuss a loft that they built for iVillage, a media company owned by NBC that is aimed at women, girls and parents.
As part of their launch into Second Life, they are offering a Girls Night Out program that accomplished a couple of things. First, it gives people in Second Life something to do. Second, it allows iVillage to highlight existing business in SL, an important part of building a presence there. To date, the biggest complaint has been that companies muscle in without regard to the existing culture. Moo Money attended the first tour in December and writes bout it in the Grid Review.
Also, we will briefly discuss the move by Linden Labs, the creators of Second Life
Hope to see you all there. If you plan to come, my Second Life avatar is Kamichat Watson, so IM me in world or leave a comment on this post that you plan to come. We usually have 20 or more PR and communication types that attend.
