Business Communicators of Second Life – today’s meeting

I was delighted to be asked to present at today’s meeting of the Business Communicators of Second Life.

I decided to keep it fresh by not pre-preparing my presentation, and typed the whole thing as I went. I took questions as I went, which really helped as I was able to adjust what I was saying based on what people were interested in hearing.

We met on Info island, where I counted 23 people in the audience, including the fabulous Torley.

I mainly covered the history of what IBMers have been doing in Second Life, how we got where we are, and what IBM’s recent announcements will mean. (By the way, I really must blog on Eightbar about the new 12-sim complex IBM announced today. Perhaps I’ll stay up and do that now). Inevitably, the conversation was wider than just Second Life, and we talked a bit about the virtual universe and the 3D Internet.

Linda has the transcript up on the SL Business Communicators blog, but I’ve uploaded it here too.

  1. Roo, thank you so much for the wonderful tour of “IBMworld” in Second Life. =D I also enjoyed your talk and am glad I had an opportunity to attend too.

    You certainly are setting a positive example as a Metaverse Evangelist and I’m intrigued in watching your progress as you continue!

  2. Thanks Torley.

    Matthew: is probably a good place to start. Download and install the client and try it out. There’s a good tech talk on Google Video from Cory and Philip (the CEO and CTO of Linden Lab) which gets you a long way in one hour, although of course some of the stats are out of date. If you’re wondering about IBMs involvement, Irving recently put up a great post on his blog. You may already know that I’m one of the bloggers at Eightbar, which is a good place to keep an eye on some of what’s going on.
