My buddy Draxtor Despres filed his first story for PBS's "Frontline/World" show today, about human rights advocacy within Second Life. Drax focused his reporting on the Virtual Gitmo camp created by Nonny de la Peña and Peggy Weil. And he describes the somewhat mixed reception he got from other human rights activists in Paris when he won an award alongside advocates in the trenches in Chad, Gaza and Indonesia.
Draxtor also made reference to the event I produced in March of last year that brought the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court into Second Life, which was a nice surprise. You can even see me for a second as the camera pulls back at the 5:30 mark!
I'm looking forward to future dispatches from Draxtor on PBS!
