SI in SecondLife

I have recently mentioned that the School of Information might consider acquiring an island on Second Life, so that students can have additional venue for socializing and collaborating. Some students became pretty excited about this prospect and began exploring SL with an eye toward potential applications in SI's teaching and research. Here's a screenshot of their gathering spot in SL:

Perhaps there is a way for two or more schools to collaborate and share the cost of an island? With education discount, the cost is reasonable: $980 plus $150 monthly "maintenance" fee.

I put an order in for an island for the Medical School about a week ago. The order has been acknowledged and I should get confirmation in a week or so. I wanted to get an island so that we can control access, maximize the number of prims available, minimize griefing, and avoid distracting neighbors. I am open to discussing collaboration.
