Very casual - talk around the fire
A beautiful spring day in Australia, but there is still nothing like sitting around a fire and talking
Airial shot of the session
There was quite a crowd at the discussion
Questions were forthcoming
Use audio and text for presentation - catering for those with sound and those with only reading/text abilities
Timed the session perfectly to one hour
Then, off to a session on Microblogging
Still at Microblogging
Then I just had time to go to a session on Sustainability in and of Second Life
Still at the sustainability session
Finished off the sustainability session and was unable to attend any more
