Ithaca college

This will be my second posting on SL. I promise to not make a habit out of it. But a day like this when I am still suffering from the cold, the snowstorm is back and every train has been delayed, I just have to escape once more. So, this is what happened today:

I met an undergraduate student from Ithaca College in upstate New York. I was invited to their university island where I, among other things, participated in a group photo and came in possession of a very fancy blue t-shirt :-)

As far as I understood it, they were having some kind of methodological class in SL. Perhaps something for Sofie and her participant observations? Anyway, I am looking forward to meeting up with all of you in SL, especially you Johan, it is really time you get it up running!

Haha, my professor posted about your blog, on her blog, after I told her about your posting... does that make sense?

I must say, when you give an example like that how the SL works, one get a much better idea about what the game can mean....and it is a very strange feeling. You did something and still not. So IF it didn't happen, how is it possible that someone gave you a blue t-shirt? Hmmm. Is it more or less real than if you had been invited to a videoconferense e.g.?

No, I will avoid 2nd Life as I hardly have time for my 1st life with my kid and the rapidly approaching end of my PhD studies. Besides, I don’t think I would like it, as I prefer more drastic "vacations" from the every day life. Therefore, fantasy and SF-games are more my cup of tea. However, I quit playing WoW almost a year ago, as morpg-like games have a tendency to be far to time-consuming, even though they can be far more rewarding than your 1st life sometimes.
