Researchers from the University of Washington Information School are conducting a research study investigating exciting and useful alternative capabilities for Second Life.
They are hosting a Future InfoExpo, which offers 6 experiential exhibits. These exhibits let you interact with new design possibilities aimed at improving the social and information aspects of Second Life.
The Future InfoExpo will be available at this Second Life URL: 2b3d UW VIBE (29,143,22)
