Annual Night of Culture in Second Life

October 14, 2010

Tomorrow I am joining the Annual Night of Culture events in Second life. This interesting initiative is among other arranged by PhD student Marianne Riis aka Mariis in Second Life.

I was so fortunate to meet Mariis this afternoon in Second Life, where she briefly showed how she can change space so that in one moment it is a space for teaching and the next it is a Friday bar.

I find it very interesting that there seems to be an increase in arrangements of virtual/online conferences/conference activities using among other Second Life.

Today I recieved an invitation to virtual participation in next year’s AACE (Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education) conference.

This development within academia is definitely something I will pursue further, especially, as it could bring new options for gathering and engaging people from around the world in academic activities and research events, when viewed from an economic perspective.

The Nordic Virtual Worlds Network has published a series of interviews with experts on virtual worlds and the future of virtual worlds. These are available online and they are quite interesting.

See you in Second Life…
