You can get the full details on the CaseCamp wiki. And don't worry, this is not a first-come, first-serve event. Since we're limited in SL to the number of avatars we can have at an event, we're going to do a draw for slots. And, hey, if you can host a gathering at your locale (i.e. you, your team and maybe even in your clients gather around a boardroom table and you project CCSL on the screen, with just one of you in the sim) even better!
CCSL is being brought to you by some pretty amazing folks:
- C.C. Chapman (Cleon Goff), VP New Marketing for crayon & Host of Managing the Gray
- Bryan Person (Zeke Barber), podcaster and blogger - Bryper.com
- Eli Singer, CaseCamp originator
and me .. Kate Trgovac (Katicus Sparrow), digital marketer and blogger - MyNameIsKate
I'm so excited that we're doing this in SL! Aside from the coolness factor (which there is .. I'm not denying it!), I really believe in the potential of sims like SL to improve our distance communication. This will be my first SL event, and I know it won't be perfect, nor will it replicate 100% real-world face time; but I'm anxious to see what unique benefits this kind of gathering has. Cost reduction? Prejudice reduction? An increase in purveyors of virtual clothing, architecture and schwag (yes, there will be CCSL t-shirts for your avatars)? Yes .. and then more.
I can't *wait* til Dec 14. What are *you* waiting for? Get over to Second Life, get your avatar and sign up! Oh, and we're looking for presenters ... so if you've got a great case (and I mean a GREAT CASE - nothing lame and no sales pitches) then we want to hear from you. Details are on the wiki.
