Lots of interest in Wonderland - wonderful!

Nicole Yankelovich presented a few weeks ago at the Train for Success weekly session in Second Life. She shared with the group (which reached capacity) the vision of Sun's Wonderland project, examples of uses of Wonderland, features and much more. There were great questions and interaction during the 1 hour session where Nicole walked her avatar next to each slide as she presented (a new format of presenting that Anders Gronstedt was trying during these sessions).

The session was recorded so if you missed it and want to hear the session, you can at the Gronstedt Group website (they host the Train for Success weekly sessions).

There are also many videos and resources available on the Wonderland website if you are interested in learning more about Wonderland. For Sun employees, we are hoping to have Nicole talk with Sun employees in-world sometime in October as well.

Have fun learning!
