Exploring Second Life

We visited Info Island in class today

This weekend in my LIS753 class we were able to visit second Life and the Second Life Information Island/Library 2.0. I logged in and walked around while the class watched on the big screen. We encountered some folks in a training session, a couple of librarians and visitors to the island. It was fascinating. The discussion that followed was lively. I hope to do more with SL in future classes. Understanding the virtual experiences that some folks are seeking out and the worlds they are building are important parts of the information landscape.
