3DCamp slides, invitation and links

Here are my 3Dcamp slides, which, had I not been thwarted by Limerick Munster match traffic would have presented, giving a background to second life activities. I was fortunate to participate in the plenary panel though, which was a great discussion of virtual worlds, of which I will put my notes up here asap.

Well done to organisers James Corbett and Gabriela Avram

Invitation to Orientation day …

As mentioned in Limerick, we are holding an orientation day for our second life activities on the 28th June. Watch this space for times. (We hope to cover the UK and US Saturday afternoon time zones). So if you haven’t ventured into second life as yet – here is that opportunity and reason to do so. You will be greeted and shown around our projects and other interesting ‘builds’ within SL. We hope to engage a number of SL friends to show you around their (related) projects too. Maybe even end up with music and Guinness at the Blarney Stone!


3DCamp was live blogged and live tweeted by Krishna De via Cover it Live on her excellent BizGrowth News blog. (thanks Krishna)


Suddenly find myself with the possibility of speaking about our second life activities on the Public Works Island and International Eco Code Park at the 3DCamp in Limerick on the 24th May.

By a coincidence I will be travelling through Limerick that day. The event will be live within second life, through twitter with questions to speakers via tweets. A right old mash up !!

so what is it?

3Dcamp is a themed Barcamp which will focus on virtual worlds (Second Life, the Metaverse), mirror worlds (Google Earth and Virtual Earth), mapping mashups, GPS, Location based Services (LBSs), haptics (eg. Wiimote hacks), 3D modelling (Blender, Sketchup) and all things 3D. Essentially the internet beyond the 2D browser.

Everybody is welcome, from users to entrepreneurs, developers, interaction designers, sociologists, artists and business people. More details to follow…
