Speaking at the 2007 Silicon Island International Tech Expo in Second Life

I am excited (and maybe a little nervous)  to be speaking at the 2007 Silicon Island Technical Expo held in Second Life this Friday (April 20) .

If you have never been to Second Life, you have to check it out. It's a 3D, virtual digital online world that's imagined, created and owned by its residents. Full of incredibly creative people who have created amazing things; art, design,  buildings, environments and communities.  You can create your own custom avatar and explore the virtual world, interact, play games, shop, create art, music, environments and even dance! 

The 2007 Silicon Island Tech Expo  -  organized by Liam Kanno and Kelly Emms - is intended to bring together the top innovators of business products in one place in SL and let Real Life business know what Second Life product developers are creating make their operations easier in SL.

The Expo will run from April 20 to 22 and will feature businesses which are focused in their efforts to make Second Life a viable medium for conducting real world business.

Sun Microsystems is a headlining vendor and I plan to give an overview of what Sun is doing for SL communities, developers, talk a bit about the Sun Island and its build-out plans,  and also let folks know how to get 20 free hours of computing time on Network.com.

There is still time to sign up Second Life, create that avatar (blue hair optional) and participate in the Silicon Island Expo and get a free hat for your avatar. Keep an eye out for my avatar - Jim Parkinson - I 'll be in a Sun t-shirt.

Comments:

I have to say that Jim had a huge crowd by SL standards as he kicked off ITE 2007. Silicon City was packed with 90 Avatars, and Silicon Island was able to handle the overflow of visitors who could watch the event live on designated monitors, as well as, slcn.tv. Many of the top coders and business related product developers, as well as SL media channels heard a robust presentation of SUN's current developments, and future plans in SL, and several had the chance to ask pertinent questions relating to SUNs plans in SL. On a personal note, many people came up to me and said this is one of most exciting events in SL and felt honored that a VP of sun took the time to engage the audience. Myself and the V3 Group, as well as, the entire ITE team wish SUN prosperity in SL, and hope they continue engaging the SL community on a personal level as noted by Jim.
