Lunchtime Listens: Info Island Project on Second Life

A recent SirsiDynix Institute presentation by Michael Sauers and Rhonda Trueman titled The Info Island Project on Second Life is a hour long overview of Second Life in general and library/university activities in Second Life in particular.

I was particularly surprised to find that the Kansas State Library has a Second Life branch. I’ll try to check it out sometime this week and get back to you if there is a govdocs angle.

This is a great presentation if you want to know what all the fuss is about. The talk even has a set of “reality checks” to help you decide whether you want to check out Second Life.

If I haven’t mentioned it before, I have to admit that I haven’t been active in Second Life for quite awhile and only just recently reinstalled the software. But I’m glad to see people with more time than I exploring and using these kinds of technology.
