I’ve just been in Second Life with ACS colleagues. We were at a Future Salon meeting and then got together at the Relay For Life site. I understand we’ll have another Relay event there this summer. The last Relay there netted $6,000. Hey, that’s pretty good for a start. Hopefully we’ll have a permanent presence there, a "virtual" unit. I’ve gotta say, to pull it off, it’s going to take some practice.
In the pic below the blond lady is Sarah Goodwin (aka, Sail Perhaps), the guy in the white t-shit in the background near the Relay sign is known as Michael Pixel. (Sorry, I forgot your real world name.) I’m in the t-shirt in the foreground. The dude in the black suit is somebody just walking by. He may become our first volunteer recruit for the next Relay. You think I’m kidding?
If you want to try out Second Life you can get a free trial account here. If we’re going to build capacity we’re going to need a lot more people involved. Lemme know if it appeals to you.
