RL/SL Connections: The Abyss Museum of Ocean Science
Our brown bag event this week continues our Real Life / Second Life Connections series with a trip to the Abyss Museum of Ocean Science. This week is the one year anniversary of the opening of the Abyss, with celebration and events and the opening of new underwater tunnels for people to view the exhibits. The Abyss was created as a collaboration of Rezago Kokorin & Sunn Thunders. Selected information is made available by the MarineBio Society as a marine conservation education and outreach effort. As part of their educational efforts, you may find such information on such topics as "Ocean Dumping", "What is a Hydrothermal Vent?", "What are Radiolaria?" and many artworks and videos related to marine ecology. More information is available at their blog:

RL/SL Connections: Brown Bag on Using Audio in SL
"Can your Avatar hear me now?": Audio in Second Life
Jaime Magiera (a.k.a. Trallfazz) provides an expanded overview of the options for incorporating audio into the Second Life experience. We will discuss audio that originates in Second Life as well as options for bringing real-world audio into Second Life. Brown Bag visitors will be encouraged to utilize sound during this talk. So, please bring headphones or situate yourself in an environment where you can turn up the sound on your computer.
