10pm MDT Second Life chatlecture on building community

9pm PDT (SLT as well) tonight Tom (and myself since he invited me) will be talking about building community virtually. If you read this blog, or the conference blog, or Tom’s, you’ll know that building and supporting community are big deals to us.

The conferences obviously are physical community, but there’s more than just the "real world". The online world is huge, there’s list serves, groups, meet ups, Breeze-O’s of physical meetings, you name it. The virtual community is as important and as thriving as the physical one.

I’ve had a Second Life account for a while now, and Tom and I have even talked about what events in Second Life would be like. I can’t recall the link, but there was recently a conference in SL, that I wasn’t able to peak in on, but I hope to see more of that type of thing.

So if you’ve got an account, or are inclined to create one (it’s free) go for it and drop in and chat with us, we’ve even got shirts!

 

Thanks to Daniel for setting this up, at least I think it’s his baby, i’m new to the loop, Tom sometimes forgets me :)

    Hey John,

    Thanks for taking the time to come and present as the event last night. We must have been doing something right because we had 2 griefers. Donít feel too bad about being out of the loop a long time; it was a short term notice after all. I think it was a success as we had a maximum of 20 people, including a professor and students in a Management Information Systems class. Iím sure that if you or Tom wanted to do another like this thereíd be interest and I can help liaison with San Jose Stateís campus.
