at the Extension Convention










Here are some pictures of an avatar using a wheelchair testing some accessibility features of the house.

I am at the Joint Council of Extension Professionals Convention in Indianapolis this week, doing a demonstration of Second Life. Many colleagues are learning about Second Life and the work we are doing here. It is really fun to have this Family Caregiving project as a highlight. It is inspiring a great deal of discussion about other projects that might be started in the near future, such as a demo kitchen for safe food handling. 

Last week I attended the annual Second Life convention, met many of the Linden Lab staff, and learned quite a bit about other organizations doing projects in SL. As a result of all this travel time, not much new has happened in the Live-ability House. Soon, however, we will be adding information notecards around the house, and making a video of the house to show to people who do not yet use SL.

If you have visited the house, please let us know. We would love to hear from you!
