View Full Version : Astronomy Cast in Second Life?

Last week I visited Science Friday in Second Life, and it was an excellent experience!!!
I immediately thought this might be an interesting format for Astronomy Cast.
Have you ever thought about doing a show in Second Life?

It was packed and the debate was very lively.
I think what they do is just stream a pre-recorded show into the site and then discuss the topic among the live audience
(this format should be quite easy to copy for Astronomy Cast)

Might be a good way to organize weekly or monthly virtual meet-ups, too.

Here's an illustrative video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fWPwOLJFA8)
And here's an article (http://nwn.blogs.com/nwn/2007/08/second-life-of-.html) with more details

That's an interesting idea. Pamela and I have been searching for a way to do a live show with listeners, to answer questions, etc. I'd like something that's more accessible for more listeners, like a Skype chat. But Second Life would be cool.

Oo, a Skype chat is a great idea!! I think a live show would be really interesting!
