There will be a mixed reality event between the Helsinki conference hall and the Second Life virtual environment. The SL client can be downloaded for free at http://secondlife.com/. Unlike before, a credit card is no longer necessary to register for an SL account.|
The Second Life event will take place in the uvvy island in SL. To attend, use the Second Life map in the client, look for region uvvy and teleport. The real time video stream from Helsinki will be displayed in SL (as well as the TransVision website). Some presentations will also be displayed in SL in Power Point -like format.
The Second Life and #transvision IRC users will share a common chat space, with a gateway bot relaying messages from one medium to another.
