Friday, March 30th Meeting - The Nonprofit Commons Field Trip


This week, we ended our meeting by visiting the Nonprofit Commons.

Here's the SLURL

Frank would like:

To reiterate and for those who weren't at the meeting

Please cruise the nonprofit commons and email any problems you find to me, with a short description and coordinates. Coordinates are very important so that I can find the problem and pass it on to the ACS design team.

Non Profit Commons in Second Life

Today we were introduced to the nonprofit commons and the offices associated with them. As I've written before, Tech Soup, part of CompuMentor, is helping organize an amazing conglomerate, on Second Life, of nonprofits. The land donor, anshe chung studios, has done an amazing job creating a truly breath taking space.

The donation of the land is significant, but add the amount of programming hours that have gone into the sim and then the $200 or so it costs to maintain per month...well it is an amazing gift.

The commons has an amphitheatre for meetings, events and so forth. As you can see, the space is vast and the environment is pretty amazing.

The office spaces are huge. I'm not sure how we are going to furnish ours without the furniture becoming lost.

I think that the final product will truly rock and will generate lots of attention.

So, stay tuned and be ready to take a step inworld. I think it will be worth it.

The TechSoup Meeting: March 23, 2007

Today we got to see the Nonprofit Commons Space for the first time! The offices are really big and the space is really nice. It is going to be something! Everyone got really excited and started to put dibbs on the corner office.



Anna Octavio took this cool photo of me.

This Week's Friday Meeting


This weeks meeting was really fun. We had a video crew there filming our meeting for a video that is being created to promote TechSoup space in Second Life.

Tuesday volunteered to be the Nonprofit Commons manager and serve as the liaison between tenants, TechSoup, and ACS.

At the end of the meeting we took a tour of the new space. See us all looking amazed at how big the space is? The offices are huge! The Nonprofit Commons is gonna rock!

Nice Introductory Presentation to Second Life

I came across some slides from PodCamp Toronto from Bryan Person and Jay Moonah that explain in a simple way "What is Second Life?"

Bryan has a few posts on his blog reflecting on his experience attending and planning events in Second Life. Definitely worth checking out.
