I would be happy to host a tour/gathering in SL on Etopia Island. What times or days work for you all?
Comment by William Wilson on June 4, 2009 at 4:16pm
Hello all - I'm Will Sveiss in Second Life, very interested in meeting people through SL or in RL, via skype or whatever tools are easiest!

Would group members be interested in having a meeting in SL to discuss its potential?

Hi folks, Les gave me a heads up about this Second Life group. I have been exploring second Life for over a year now and believe in its potential to engage folks a new level. I am know as Maz Shan is SL. So how about starting out with a tour of Etopia island and/or creating an event?
Comment by Sarah Chenkin on February 5, 2009 at 11:14am
Zev- Yes I'm interested in SL for transition related meetings as well- however most people in my transition group are not even very comfortable with forums and email. I'm hoping to get a subgroup together with a focus on organic and forest gardening who meet in-world as you say. I find navigating in SE rather cumbersome and there is a pretty steep learning curve. To help others get started with it , I need to get up to speed myself. If you have any recommendations on a particularly useful tutorial I would appreciate your suggestions. I originally got interested in SL as an on-line psychotherapy modality.

Sarah,

I have been in Second Life since march of 2007 and would be happy to help you navigate in-world. I am mostly interested in supporting Transition Groups who are interested in meeting in Second Life as an alternative to driving to meetings when it is not necessary or challenging to do.

I am Chickade yiwama and am just learning how to get around and do things in SL. If you know of a good tutorial please let me know.

Zev, I encourage you to start 2-3 discussions on the forum above and encourage people to put their materials into the threaded discussions. Examples might be, "Introduce Yourself", "Minutes of our Meetings", "Questions about Second Life"..... A stream of Comments below can get unwieldy rather quickly.

Stephen,
