SL5B Roundtables: Teens and Community Enlightenment

Something for everyone today! M will make his appearance on the Teen Grid at 11am. Author Tom Boellstorff will be discussing his new book on SL5B Linked at 12pm SLT and there will be a Community Enlightenment roundtable at 3pm SLT, also on SL5B Linked.

M will be addressing teens in TSL, recognizing the great work they’ve been doing as well as organizations like Global Kids. Moderated by Blue Linden, he’ll also be answering some of their questions and concerns about TSL. The session will be done in chat, and transcripts will be made available as soon as possible

‘Coming of Age in Second Life’ shows how virtual worlds can change ideas about identity and society. Bringing anthropology into territory never before studied, Tom Boellstorff’s book demonstrates that in some ways humans have always been virtual, and that virtual worlds in all their rich complexity build upon a human capacity for culture that is as old as humanity itself.

Second Life is full of features and services ready to be explored. Our panel, which is a mixture of Lindens and Residents, will introduce information about Groups, Content Creation, as well as Educational Resources and how they relate. Join our casual gathering of Q&A and enhance your in-world experience.

As always, the full schedule is available on wiki
