It’s no secret that I am fascinated by the topic of RL business in SL. My current goal is to create a RL job that pays me to login to SL and spend the day there working and developing. 🙂 Whenever I hear about RL business events in SL, therefore, I make every effort to participate.
Earlier this week I attend the Nokia Connecting Worlds event in SL. I’d never heard of the Nokia Connecting Worlds seminars. For that matter, I didn’t know that Nokia had such a strong vibrant presence in SL. I learned about Nokia in SL from attending the Beyond Blogging Conference last month. Hydra Shaftoe participated in several of the sessions. I was impressed by how articulately he expressed his views and by all the background knowledge/information he provided. So when a message flashed across one of my groups that Nokia was holding its May edition of Nokia Connecting Worlds, hosted and moderated by Hydra, I knew I had to attend.
Nokia posts their events to the SL Community Events calendar. The following is from their May post:
Nokia corporation is proud to present its May edition of Nokia Connecting Worlds. This month we will be inviting several large companies that have had success with implementing virtual worlds in their business practices, and exploring how those practices can benefit other corporations with thoughts of moving in themselves. Since the two are naturally linked, we will also be exploring behind-firewall solutions and their viability for corporate virtual world usage.
