SXSW (a conference about music and new media down in Austin Texas) has a track this year on videogames and virtual worlds. I can't go in person. But I can go in SL. The folks over at Electric Sheep Company are streaming it live on their island. So i get to sit in a comfy auditorium, talk to other interesting folks, and watch the panels. I've taken a lot of notes to bring the info into class. The only thing we don't get to do is to ask questions - but it's so crowded at hte real world panel that the odds of getting to ask a question are pretty slim too.
Check out the big sheep - that's the log for Electric Sheep Company - look at hte feet. It's such a cool logo.
Here are a couple of pictures:
