Government and education in Second life.

Filed under: Government, Second Life — kirk @ 12:59 pm

Unpacking at the lab.I’ve been doing some work in Second Life for a number of years at this point. Missouri state government has also gotten into the game. Check out this news article in Converge magazine.
I figured that, while I was helping with that project, I could post some of my work here.

You’ll find the lab.of my alter ego (Marcus Variscan) in Second Life. I’m still unpacking so you won’t see much at this point.
If you have Second Life installed on your machine you can go directly to the lab. by clicking here. Second Life uses spatial links called SLurls. You can find out more about them at SLurl.com

Missouri IT recruitment looking at Second Life

Filed under: Government, Second Life — kirk @ 10:17 pm

Some of the folks involved in Missouri IT recruitment are exploring whether Second Life might be able to reach prospective employees.view of Missouri IT area in Second Life

I’ve been working with them to design some information kiosks and such. (well, actually, I guess it’s been my Second Life alter ego, Marcus Variscan).
Second Life is a virtual world that has a simple but very cool and flexible scripting language built into it. You can build and code some pretty complex 3d effects with relative ease.

You have to have the client (which is free) and an account (also free) to get into Second Life. Here is a link to where the Missouri IT job fair is being built.
