Sophrosyne’s Saturday Salon: Higher Education & Community in SL

Yesterday’s Salon saw a near-record turnout (about 45, with a peak concurrency of 35) for Salon Spotlight Guests Fleep Tuque and Cosimo Urbanowicz, for a vigorous discussion!

We spent the first hour on higher education and synthetic worlds, examining the roles of innovation and tradition in bringing students to the metaverse, best practices, and styles of technological adaption.  In the second hour, we focused on community formation and management, with a fascinating look at Chilbo Community, a vibrant, creative and gorgeous effort on the mainland.

The Salon ended all too soon – we could have gone on for hours more!

Next week, Corro Moseley of DadenLimited – chatbots, a-life and a whole range of fascinating technologies!
