Excellent Videos – Public Good Challenge

At the Friday meeting, Draxtor Despres gave us a great presentation on the public good challenge, produced for the Network
Culture Project at USC. Drax is working on a three part video series to represent the project and parts 1 and 2 are now complete. I took some time to watch them this morning and I have to say that they are VERY well done and incredibly informative. I would encourage everyone to take a look.

Network Culture Project – Public Good Challenge Part 1

Network Culture Project – Public Good Challenge Part 2

I am very interested to see the last segment. Great work, Drax – please keep ’em coming!

5 Finalists in USC Public Good & Second Life Community Challenge Announced — vote for your favorites!

We just announced in-world the five finalists in the USC Network Culture Project’s "Second Life and Public Good Community Challenge". They are:

Congrats to all the finalists, and all those that participated!

It was enormously difficult picking the best among a lot of very worthy proposals.  I hope that some of the other runners-up are able to find other support to move forward with their initiatives.

For the five finalists, it goes to the larger SL community to help pick the three winners, each of which will receive L$300,000 to develop their project.  Click the links to read about each proposal, and then head to this survey to pick your favorites.  The winners will be announced on July 1.

Head to the Network Culture Project website for more info.
