Everyone is welcome to attend this conference, sponsored and hosted by Virtual Ability next Friday and Saturday. Presenters — including anthropologist Tom Boellstorff — will speak about topics from web accessibility (interface design and rights issues) to assistive technology and inclusion. The full schedule can be found here. Times are posted in SLT, which is Pacific Daylight Time. I’m hoping to attend one or two sessions.
These are important topics for anyone working in web or technology design, far beyond SL. If you’re not a current Second Life resident and want to attend, it’s quite easy to create a new free account, choose one of the pre-made avatars, and attend. Be sure to get set up and download the viewer software well ahead of time. You can drop me a note if you need assistance.
