The American Geophysical Union’s 2007 Fall Meeting is looming — it’s on Dec 10-14 in San Francisco this year. There is a special mini website detailing all virtual globe sessions that are taking place — I count 42 presentations spread across 4 sessions (!).
I won’t be able to make it; I’ll be a the Global Knowledge III confererence in Kuala Lumpur just then, talking about public diplomacy and virtual worlds (because of my job managing Sweden’s virtual embassy in Second Life.) Who knows, maybe I’ll be able to score a cheap laptop off Nicholas Negroponte:-).
(BTW, if you visit Second Life, why not check out some virtual public diplomacy in action this coming Friday: We’re opening a new permanent exhibit on Carl Linnaeus, the famous Swedish scientist.)
