Just a reminder that the 4th annual Games for Change
conference will feature
a mixed-reality panel TODAY on "virtual activism" at 10:15AM EST. Games for
Change brings together game developers, industry experts, academics and
non-profits to discuss how to use digital games to promote social
The "virtual activism" panel will feature several experts on non-profits in Second Life including Glitteractica Cookie of Techsoup, In Kenzo of Amoration, Jeska Linden of Linden Labs and moderator Beth Kanter.
Jeska will be participating from within SL, while Glitter, In Kenzo and
Beth will be at the physical conference venue. SL participants will be
able to submit questions via IM to the panelists. The in-world event will take place in the amphitheater in the Plush Non-profit
Commons sim (teleport SLURL.)
I’ll be helping out on-site at the conference venue, the Parsons
School of Design in Manhattan. Last night I met with In Kenzo, Beth, Glitteractica and Nexeus Fatale (our event techie) at the Flatiron Lounge for drinks and scheming. Such a cool group of folks.
