Yesterday, I had the pleasure of leading up a panel of non-profit experts talking about "Best Practices for Non-profits in Second Life," held at the Plush Nonprofit Commons in SL. Speakers shown from left to right are:
- Lori Bell, Alliance Library System
- Rafi Santo, Global Kids
- Jade Lily, SL Relay for Life
- Jimbo Hoyer, YearlyKos in SL
- and Glitteractica Cookie, TechSoup
I couldn't have asked for a better group of speakers on the subject!
Pulling off the event was a real team effort, involving my lovely green friend In Kenzo producing the event, Penguin Kuhn moderating in-world, and cyber-goddess Rhiannon Chatnoir helping with the audio stream. Streaming into the grid seven people from different locations (including In Kenzo as question passer) via Skype was very ambitious and frankly I'm a bit surprised that it worked.
We reportedly had 82+ avatars present and we maxed out our audio stream for most of the talk! For those that were not able to attend or had the audio cut out on them, we've posted an audio file of the entire event to Holymeatballs.org. You can check out the Best Practices for Nonprofits white paper and also read the (slightly edited) chat log after the jump. Thanks, everyone for coming!
