WWF brings an ecological message to SL in their new Conservation Island

The international conservation organization formerly known as the World Wildlife Fund, now simply called the WWF, has launched a new "Conservation Island" in Second Life to spread their message about living in harmony with nature. Clearly they are taking a whimsical approach to this, with orangutans that sell you ice cream and pandas that teach about sustainable products.

Well, a group of us met today by phone call. There are a few things I took away from today's meeting.

1) Please, if you want to blog here (even if you have your own blog and want to cross post from there), let me know. Email matthew at dogstar.org and let me know your NPSL username and who you are in the nonprofit commons. I'll set you up. The more bloggers we have, the better.

Is Peter Morville still a babe in Second Life?

CNN, YouTube, and Tweets

What a curious thing the Democratic debate this afternoon ended up being. I was unable to watch them live, needing to be at work to earn a living, but found out via Len Edgerly on Twitter that baratunde was sending out live tweets covering the goings on. So, when I got home this evening, I followed the Twitter streams of baratunde and Len to get a sense of what happened.

 

Many thanks to Brownrice Internet for hosting the NPSL site.
