Second Life Conference: Libraries, Education and Museums

Here's another in-world conference in Second Life that you might want to attend: The Virtual Worlds: Libraries, Education and Museums Conference.

As I've mentioned before, if you haven't attended a conference in Second Life you should definitely give it a try. The conferences I have attended previously have been very effective, and it beats the heck out of travel, hotels, being away from home... This conference costs $8000 Lindens (around $30) which is a heck of a lot cheaper than face-to-face conferences.

The Virtual Worlds: Libraries, Education and Museums Conference will be held in Second Life at the New Media Consortium Conference Center (NMC) on March 8, 2008. Registration is 8000 lindens (equivalent of $30 USD) payable in lindens to avatar Valencia Lane in Second Life.

The purpose of this conference is to provide a gathering place for librarians, information professionals, educators, museologists, and others to learn about and discuss the educational, informational, and cultural opportunities of virtual worlds.

If you decide to attend please say hello. I'll be attending as Jonathan Foss.
