Just listened to the IT Conversations podcast of his talk at the Accelerating Change conference. Talked about the American Cancer Society walk-a-thon inside Second Life, where the avatars earned over $4000 USD (converted from LindenDollars) for the charity. Gave other examples of the interface between the virtual and real world--like, wouldn't it be great to do Google Earth of Second Life? He also spoke of Second Life mirrors of real-world places, and real world mirrors of Second Life artifacts. He looks forward to the time when a 3-D interactive interface replaces the text-based interface of the current browsers.
