Millions of people worldwide have flocked to a virtual environment known as “Second Life” during the past few years. There, they create three-dimensional representations of themselves, known as “avatars,” that buy, sell, teach, build, and relate in a world totally created by its residents.
Join us for a thought provoking evening, at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society, with Harvard’s father-daughter team of Charles Nesson and Rebecca Nesson as they examine Second Life and the opportunities and problems that this virtual environment confronts.
You are encouraged to bring your laptop to the event so that you can experience Second Life hands-on. If you do plan to bring your computer, please download the Second Life program beforehand by visiting this website: http://secondlife.com/. Wireless internet access will be provided by Harvard Law School on the evening of November 12th.
