We have a newly purchased island in Second Life for the community to use and we are planning to have an interactive build during the ALT-C conference next week. What exactly does this mean: simply, we want to invite members of the community and delegates at ALT-C to join the team building on the island. This might be ideas for types of activities (fun or educational) or architectural structures. We have a list of possible builds which we will attempt to create from now, up to, and then during the conference – obviously what we can achieve will depend on community input and how complex the ideas are to design and build. The suggestions so far include:
a. A maze as a poster presentation area
b. Art gallery
c. Horses as a novel way to travel across the island
d. A balloon ride
e. Base jumping station
f. A serene space – Japanese garden?
g. A dance area with appropriate scripts/animations
h. An area for media and streaming media presentations
Comments and additions welcome and the more radical or experimental the better!
I will create a SLurl for the island shortly and post details on the Emerge site
If you want to join the build team, take part or simply watch events as they unfold then please send me your SL name and I will make sure you added to the Emerge group.
