Virginia Tech memorial in Second Life

Title

Virginia Tech memorial in Second Life

Description

18 April, 2007

I was doing a bit of wandering in Second Life today, and came across a rather well-done <a href="http://slurl.com/secondlife/Info%20Island/88/113/33/u=c5299b5432264b08866da9a7cbb2d9cb">memorial to the Virginia Tech tragedy</a> in an area that&#39;s academically focused (it&#39;s staffed 50+ hours per week by volunteer reference librarians around the world... very cool). There is a wall featuring portraits of those lost, as well as a place for people to leave memorials/tributes. It&#39;s done with a good heart and worth checking out. It&#39;s another example of communities coming together virtually (lots of positive energy in Facebook, too).
