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.
