Panel: Virtual Self-Governance

How do communities govern themselves in virtual worlds? What do members want from virtual communities, and how are those things provided? How much do national laws and policies actually affect virtual self-governance? What tools are needed that we don't have yet? How do the platforms enable or hinder effective community governance?

moderating:

John Carter McKnight, Adjunct Professor of Law, Arizona State University Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law

Rose Springvale, Attorney, former Sultana, Al-Andalus Sims in Second Life

Kim Smith, COO, World2Worlds, Inc.

Chris Collins, Project Manager, University of Cincinnatti in Second Life

Jamie Palisades, Former Chancellor, Confederation of Democratic Simulators, Second Life
