Had a great time at the Common Grounds tonight, dancing and networking with other NPSL tenants. The theme was “Stripes”; and everyone showed up looking their stripingly best!
Zinnia brought up a great question: how can we best share our successes in SL with each other? Of course parties like Common Grounds are always good, but we need to think of more ways to include our peers in other countries and vastly different time zones. Some ideas thrown out there were more community events at various times to accommodate the different times zones, weekly meditation, yoga or tai chi gatherings. We can also use the written word to share our news – post it on the NPSL facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/nonprofitcommons) or write about it on this blog. And how about a Linked In group? All great ideas! If you can think of anything else, bring it up during open mic at a Friday meeting.
We also learned about Ronnie Rhode’s fantastic article on the closing of Teen SL. You can read it here: http://thejournal.com/articles/2010/09/01/the-end-of-the-virtual-world.aspx. Congrats Ronnie…great article!
Next month’s Common Grounds theme is Halloween…hope to see you all there again!
