Last night I participated in my first Second Life panel discussion, by that I mean the first one where I was “in world” and hooked into voice at the same time.
The discussion was held in the SAP Community Office which is now open there in Second Life on Silicon City and was a huge success. Metaversed.com was the host and 57 Miles (Nick Wilson) was the moderator and the facility was the SAP one after a whirlwind “attempt” at setup by myself – not a designer but it was still fun.
I was watching the “map” inside of Second Life (quickest way to see a total avatar count) and at the start of the event we had 55 avatars present and at the end we had 59, with a peak around the 30 min mark at 63. We also had several on the call so it’s hard to get a 100% accurate number (unless I had been smart and added a visitor counter but oh well).
There were several new faces in the room for me but also several that I knew and a surprise as well.
For those who did not make it you can have a listen to the recorded session here.
