DevLearn2006 - Spreadin' the news about virtual life
One of my favorite moments at DevLearn2006 came during the panel discussion on e-Learning2.0. Tony Karrer led the discussion and we all had just commented on Secondlife and the future of 3D spaces just before Q&A. I'm not sure if it was the first question, but at some point there was a woman in the crowd who raised her hand and simply said, with great enthusiasm, "YOU GUYS ARE FREAKIN' ME OUT!" It was all I could do to keep from telling her about furries and the other oddities inworld.
Its a great reminder that this stuff is STILL very new to people and we need to continue getting the word out.
