Is anybody doing anything with the TechHui site at U of H sim on Second Life
I noticed a malfunctioning link there.
1,000 prims still available on that sim,
and 14,952 prims available on the College of Education site sim next door.
(shows as "Grand Opening in Fall 2010).
Alot happening with prototyping and social network / IT interoperability and eductaional opportunities available in this environment now ...
Alot of improvements ... real-time interoperability with website EC / client previews very viable ...
Seems like a potentially good and low-cost (free) tech 3D collaboration environment.
That was awhile back ...
I ended up creating several 3D interactive models that talked with MS/SQL databases, Google Earth, Websites, etc.
Lot of capability in SL, but I never got much response or interest, so I put it back burner.
Let me know if you or Gus want to talk further about the potential (which I think is timely and awesome). I can offer some ideas and show examples to see if any of it fits your business model for TechHui, non-profit or otherwise.
FYI, I am still talking occasionally with several people about using interactive 3D models for global education. Obama Admin and Google.org have expressed interest, and I can put you in touch with the players to see if there is any synergy.
