GameTech Conference via Second Life

A common apology is that people "Do as I say, not as I do." So it may be said of many training conferences, which are held in ways not conducive to learning. Let this not be said of the Defense GameTech and Connections Conference 2009, to be held in the military training capital of the world (allowing for some hyperbole), Orlando, this month. On this occasion, the conference organizing are allowing for selected Second Life avatar-enabled folk to participate virtually. This is clearly a case of taking the technology to heart - with all the attendant risk and anticipated technical hurdles, great and small. Whatever the result, this is a laudable attempt by organizers.
