Congratulations to Native Lands, the Ability Commons and the Texas Obesity Research Center for winning the USC Public Good Community Challenge! Eech group is being awarded L$300,000 and a plot of land each to develop their projects in Second Life. These three projects bring such important concerns to the table — Native American heritage preservation, emotional support for people with disabilities, and education about the problem of obesity. I’m looking forward to seeing how their projects develop over the next months.
Meanwhile, in a surprise turn, the USC Network Culture Project has decided to also award the two runners-up — Interactive Accessible Home and the Mauerkrankheit/Wallsickness project — L$50,000 each and land in Second Life to develop their projects as well! Wallsickness was a personal favorite, so I’m glad to see it getting support.
Thanks to everyone who participated and voted!
