We are very excited and thankful to have secured two internships through Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia – US. It’s actually an interesting indicator of the level of attention new technologies – virtual worlds and social media – are getting from academic institutions.
In a few days, Tim and Greg, two students at ODU, will begin their work to help expand awareness of IMAGINE PeaceFest. Thanks in advance, guys! And thank you very much to Nakia, Tom and team at ODU for making this possible for us and of course for the organizations we are supporting this year.
I’ve posted also about our planning on the Nordic Virtual Worlds Network blog. I have the good fortune of knowing a number of the people involved in that interesting work, and have shared the planning for our upcoming event with them – as they are interested in the innovative uses of virtual worlds technologies.
For now – planning meetings are happening each Monday at 1pm and 6pm pacific time (Second Life time) – we are meeting online in Second Life at the Peace Train meeting space on Virtually Speaking island: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Virtually%20Speaking/226/65/25
