------------This is there blurb ---------------------------------------------------------
Second Life is an exciting new venue for collaboration, training, distance learning, new media studies and marketing.

Hold a virtual meeting with your sales managers located in Europe and Asia. You can present the new sales initiatives and discuss them with your team real-time.

Build a new world that allows Second Life residents to interact with your products or services and enables you to test out new designs and concepts before introducing them to the real world. Or perhaps you have a product that you would like to sell in Second Life. Plan an event to promote your product: a concert, a class, a famous speaker, a party, a contest.

Create an innovative learning environment for students and faculty. Explore new tools and techniques for information and scientific visualization. Design collaborative meeting spaces and interact with colleagues from across the globe. Whether you're thinking of enriching an existing curriculum or experimenting with completely new educational goals, Second Life is a platform for innovation.

With Second Life, you are only limited by your imagination.

Second Life is a 3D platform that can be used for:

    * Presenting, promoting, and selling content to a broad online audience
    * Collaborating and communicating in real time between multiple participants
    * Researching new concepts/products
    * Training and educating in virtual classrooms


eductaion blurb --------------------------------------
Second Life provides a unique and flexible environment for educators interested in distance learning, computer supported cooperative work, simulation, new media studies, and corporate training.

Second Life provides an opportunity to use simulation in a safe environment to enhance experiential learning, allowing individuals to practice skills, try new ideas, and learn from their mistakes. The ability to prepare for similar real-world experiences by using Second Life as a simulation has unlimited potential!

Students and Educators can work together in Second Life from anywhere in the world as part of a globally networked virtual classroom environment. Using Second Life as a supplement to traditional classroom environments also provides new opportunities for enriching an existing curriculum. Many universities and educational institutions are already using Second Life,

SL is really the ultimate in social networking and Web 2.0 type applications but with the fusion of immersive worlds - really capturing the spirit of the early MOOs (which education embraced more than most).
A natural progression would be mobile - enabling communities of practice to develop where participants can contribue and interact 'in context' and at point of inspiration. Obviously adaptaions would be needed to suit mobile web and to take advatntage of the hybrid devices which already afford us so much!

If you use Twitter, you may like to know about Twitter Box which allows you to send tweets and receive your twitter stream when you're in Second Life.

http://ordinalmalaprop.com/twitter/

So both my avatar and I microblog to the same feed. :-)

I'm interested in hearing of any other widgets/gadgets/techs that allow for In- and Out-of- World communication?

Theres some example scripts for doing this at the SL developers corner as well
http://sl-devcorner.blogspot.com/2007/03/second-life-twitter.html.

At one of the HHL08  Wednesday morning sessions I'll be talking a little bit about a project at Glasgow that is exploring  the use for communication between SecondLife  and  outside world mobile devices. (Interested users who want such applications or indeed anyone interested in helping to develop such apps , please come along or contact me )

For myself (as Kath knows only too well) Ive setup a couple of bits of hardware to send information in world and another to control real world devices from within SL.

I am just tidying up a little web based service to help provide the bridge between worlds if anyone else is struggling to do this.
