I just read about an expo billed as a ‘Virtual International Podcasting Expo’. The details are here.
When I read this, I thought ‘ooo, in Second Life?’ – but apparently not. The site seems extremely vague about the hows and whatnot of this ‘3-D Virtual Expo’ but looking at one of the pages here, it looks like a web-based habbo hotel-type thing.
They appear to have a pretty good (and long!) lineup of speakers. It will be interesting to see what happens and how it all works.
There could be all sorts of reasons why they do not choose Second Life to do this, but I think they could do it there too, to an extent. I get the feeling it’s jumping on the bandwagon a bit, but if it’s good for podcasting and it helps people learn, then that’s good enough for me. 😉
