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.
