[17:04] Rebecca Berkman: I think we're ready to begin.
[17:04] Fossil Watkin: no fatties
[17:04] Rebecca Berkman: This evenings we will be selecting a jury for the trial in the case Bragg v. Linden.
[17:04] Rebecca Berkman: Students in Professor Nesson's (eon's) Evidence class have been preparing to act as the lawyers in this trial.
[17:05] Rebecca Berkman: It will take place tomorrow night and the following night, here on Berkman Island.
[17:05] Rebecca Berkman: For jury selection tonight, two groups of law students have prepared questions to ask the jury pool during the process of selecting their
[17:05] Rebecca Berkman: jury.
[17:06] Rebecca Berkman: They will then have the option to eliminate some potential jurors who they think may be bad for their side.
[17:06] Rebecca Berkman: Then we will have our jury!
[17:06] Fossil Watkin: american idol is starting folks
[17:06] Rebecca Berkman: We are going for 9 jurors plus several alternates.
[17:06] yuki Carr: Arf
[17:06] Rebecca Berkman: Eon, would you like to say something about the process of jury selection?
[17:07] Rebecca Berkman: Law students, if you are capable of looking over someone's shoulder instead of having your own avatar here, it will speed up the lag for everyone!
[17:07] Teresa Cinquetti: ao off
[17:07] Eon Berkman: the objective is to get a fair jury, meaning a group which will consider the evidence and the instructions and reach fair verdict
[17:08] Fossil Watkin: is this a capital case?
[17:08] Hojo Chaplin: no
[17:08] Rebecca Berkman: OK, what will happen now is that the first group of law students will ask their questions and hear answers from the jury pool.
[17:08] Rebecca Berkman: The questions are structured so that you do not have to answer each question.
[17:08] Fossil Watkin: send them to the gallows! make sure noose isn't too tight
[17:09] Eon Berkman: this is a civil case in which the questions will involve the fairness of dealings beteen the plaintiff, Bragg, and the defendant, Linden Labs, over land transactions.
[17:09] Rebecca Berkman: Fossil, would you mind keeping quiet -- it is challenging to keep so many people organized!
[17:09] Teresa Cinquetti: anyone who wants to mute Fossil its a function of the history chat window
[17:09] Fossil Watkin: buzz of teresa
[17:09] Eon Berkman: we would like to proceed by having the designated law students pose questions to the potential jurors
[17:09] Fossil Watkin: i have rights too
[17:10] Chinadoll Lulu: Fossil, sorry to be mean, but would you please STFU
[17:10] Rebecca Berkman: Can a representative from the first group of law students come forward to ask teh questions?

[17:20] Chinadoll Lulu: that is all
[17:20] Tetero Lesse: I read them carefully months ago (for a class), but don't remember specific provisions. As I recall, all rights were reserved to Linden Labs
[17:21] Bob2007 Boyd: Second question: do you feel that you or Linden Labs owns the property that you purchase in Second Life?
[17:21] Daisyblue Hefferman: I do

[17:22] Alan Lederberg: not sure
[17:23] Zuling Zhaoying: is it too late to be on the jury?
[17:23] Bob2007 Boyd: Third question: what were the qualities of Second Life that led you to choose it over other MMOs/virtual worlds?

[17:23] Section5Plus1 Harvey: Objection
[17:23] Yuu Nakamichi: no choice
[17:23] Daisyblue Hefferman: first i heard about
[17:23] Section5Plus1 Harvey: Not a yes or no questionBasis:
[17:23] Chinadoll Lulu: wait
[17:24] Chinadoll Lulu: there is an objection
[17:24] Eon Berkman: objection overruled
[17:24] Tetero Lesse: Initially the buzz, later the richness of the environment - an that the class I wanted to take was conducted in SL
[17:24] Eon Berkman: please answer
[17:24] Nate Grigges: I joined to be part of this activity
[17:24] Teresa Cinquetti: social aspects
[17:25] Cordelia Moy: Well 'd enrolled in the class Eon was teaching to see exactly how arguments are made inSL -- wnated
[17:25] Chinadoll Lulu: i choose SL cuz it is more than a game, in fact it is much more than a game
[17:25] Cordelia Moy: to explore the educational potential
[17:25] Yuu Nakamichi: to repeat, no choice as there's no comparable service available
[17:25] Chinadoll Lulu: the inter-relationships keeps me here
[17:25] Teresa Cinquetti: it is social and does not have the useless grind of an MMO
[17:25] Chuck Commons: to participate in specific projects (Berkman lunches, BeyondBroadcast)
[17:26] Chinadoll Lulu: yes no grind, and no mindless chase of emptyness of meaningless things
[17:27] Teresa Cinquetti: that and I just got paid for a sale :) while sitting here
[17:27] Bob2007 Boyd: Fourth question: If Linden Labs were to develop another MMO/ virtual world, would you try it? If yes, why?
[17:27] Daisyblue Hefferman: no, too much invested here. unless it was transferable
[17:27] Alan Lederberg: probably; to check it out
[17:27] Chinadoll Lulu: i would try it since i believe LL has done a good job in developing SL.
[17:27] Nate Grigges: hard to say with no more info than that, but probably no
[17:27] Teresa Cinquetti: yes because this one has shown itself to be a positive experience not perfect but a start
[17:27] Tetero Lesse: Yes. I think they do good work and would be interested in seeing what they come up with next
[17:28] Cordelia Moy: Depends on what it was designed to do -- what made it different, better, etc. Would visit; not necessarily migrate.
[17:28] Yuu Nakamichi: I would look for transferability as well, but dont expect to see ll roll out anything esle on this scale
[17:28] Chuck Commons: Only if I needed to use it for a specific event. Most likely not though.
[17:28] Yuu Nakamichi: I woul actively look for competitors
[17:30] Eon Berkman: boyd, have you concluded your questioning

[17:37] Einsel Lesnie: shouldn't we keep ten to include an alternate?
[17:38] Alan Lederberg: me too
[17:38] Rebecca Berkman: I don't think Fossil answered Boyd's questions.
[17:38] Section5Plus1 Harvey: Sorry, not two Chinadolls. I meant Alan
[17:38] Teresa Cinquetti: I think Fossil was a greifer

[17:39] Chinadoll Lulu: yes unfortunately i guessed it
[17:39] Eon Berkman: yes
[17:39] Rebecca Berkman: Eon, it seems to me that we could use a little teaching from you on the jury selection process and the idea of a jury.
[17:39] Chinadoll Lulu: as much as i wish to be in the jury, i think that set up is the best for the class (ooc)
[17:39] Rebecca Berkman: Now that we've just been through it.
