Mia Farrow Didn't Discuss Darfur in Second Life

Is SecondLife going to collapse under the weight of its own hype? Very probably. But just like Web 1.0/2.0 (yuck, hate that term), something else will replace it one day.

Unfortunately, today's live event addressing the situation in Darfur with Mia Farrow didn't happen as planned. After crashing and having a hard time finding the location after teleporting in I found out that there was a fire at the hosting company in Boston. That said, LCMedia built a pretty amazing sim, complete with a powerful slide show and a video from the Holocaust museum.

Whether SL lives or dies, it's evident that virtual worlds are here to stay. I counted at least 30 avatars mulling around, and that was after they told everyone that the event wasn't going to happen. The graphics, interaction and social aspects of meeting in an environment like this are stunning.

If you are interested in marketing at all, I highly recommend that you find some time soon to get an account and check things out.


After leaving the Darfur exhibit, I teleported over to Techsoup for their weekly meeting where I met someone who told me that they were working on a way to connect interaction within SecondLife to the Internet - the ability to sign up for an email newsletter or become an advocate directly from SL is a terrific thing. I can't wait to see how this will work!
