12..14-Aug-2011: SLCC Second Life 2011 Full Schedule

While I will not be there this year, I’m happy to see SLCC seems to the right combination of fun and value.  Check out http://www.slconvention.org/ for all the details.

From the web site:

We are excited to announce the full schedule for the Second Life Community Convention 2011!
Visit the “Schedule” link on our website, or view the schedule directly at http://schedule.slconvention.org to see the full line up of convention events, social events and mixers, keynote presentations, panels, breakout sessions, and more!

This year we opted to use a terrific service called http://sched.org to help our attendees view all of the options, and we’ll be integrating that with EventBrite so all registered attendees can have an account to create their own customized, personal schedules!  If you’re registered for the convention, keep an eye on your email for your invitation – then you can choose your own personalized schedule and print it out, send it to your online calendar, or even view it on your mobile smart phone or tablet!

Note that in-world attendees can use the site, too, and we’ve even provided the links to the UStream channels and SLurls for in-world venues for maximum convenience! (In-world attendees will have to sign up for their accounts manually, more to come on in-world events soon!)

04..07-Aug-2011: Wikimania 2011 in Haifa

I will have the pleasure to chair one of the panels, in this “amazing” Wikimania 2011 conference.
on Sat, Aug 6th 9:00-10:30

Wikimania is the annual international conference of the Wikimedia community. It’s organized by a different local team each year – in 2011 the conference is taking place in Haifa, Israel. Wikimania allows the community and the general public to learn about and share their experiences with free knowledge initiatives all over the world.
