The first event will be held at the Old Bowl in Alpine Meadow, Confederation of Democratic Simulators, Second Life.

The topic will be “Nymwars”, or the current “blogosphere battle” against Google Plus (and Facebook) who refuse to allow users of their service to use pseudonyms on their profiles. Since Second Life is relatively exceptional, as Linden Lab vowed to guarantee privacy and pseudonymity, we might be able to talk about how identity is defined in a virtual world, what is the role of reputation, and what caveats there are.

The chat log will be recorded and posted (assuming I don’t crash!)
