  • SL Background?!
  • RT: We are already beginning to see dramatic changes in several professions such as architecture and fashion.
  • http://www.protonmedia.com/ www.qwaq.com VOIP Chatrooms Wikis, blogs Social networking avatars
  • Explore how entrepreneurs and SMEs globally are using and could use VWs to improve their competitiveness. how both formal and informal work and business processes, such as product and service design, customer and supplier interaction, learning and training, may be transformed and made more effective through the use of VWs. To create a Virtual Center for VW Entrepreneurship &amp; Innovation to stimulate and facilitate networking and knowledge and resource sharing among Nordic individuals and organizations interested in VWs. We also plan to connect these Nordic actors to leading VW actors in other global areas, especially Silicon Valley, to improve knowledge transfer as well as business opportunity development

  • Speaker notes Just to give you an example, I try to practice what I preach and I put all my presentations on a site called slideshare.net and make them downloadable. I have one presentation based on my research on networks that has received almost 18 000 hits and it has been downloaded several thousand times by people all over the world. It has been used as course material in France and in articles and I have been contacted by people from places as far away as South Africa, Canada, Dubai, and India for interviews and for teaching opportunities. Also, through Second Life I have met some fascinating people and one of my closest colleagues now is Steve Mahaley, aka Ace Carson, who is the Director of Learning Technology at Duke Corporate Education. Steve is in the audience here…. So, in closing, I would like to say that I am now in your networks, and it would be fantastic if some of you were interested in participating in a research project or if you were just curious about learning more about virtual worlds. SSE has an island here and the idea was to create a playing ground where companies could experiment and play with virtual worlds. So, feel free to contact me online or inworld! Thank you! End
