Richard Posner, US judge well known for his books on various topics (and also a lecturer at U.Chicago law school, I discover), appeared on Second Life to promote his new book, Not a Suicide Pact. (I haven't read the book, but it is supposedly "controversial.")
I signed up to participate (there are limits on how many people can be in one place in SL), but couldn't make it. However, I read the transcript. What did I learn? Not that much:
- There is a limited selection of suits available for avatars.
- Not that many people turned up--the event was perhaps more PR than communication.
- There are people starting to think about the legal implications of virtual worlds.
But I'm sorry I missed it.
