Invitation to midwifery meeting in Second Life

Just a reminder about Carolyn's meeting that she is organizing in Second Life. Midwives, students and educators are very cordially invited to meet Carolyn and I in Second Life to network and learn more about Second Life. You are also very warmly invited if you are a Second Life 'expert' - we need all the help we can get!

I am extremely excited about this because I am still a bit of a non-believer. So I am looking forward to meeting colleagues and exploring how Second Life can be used to facilitate communication and collaboration in the midwifery context. Just hope the technology works on the night!

More details from from Carolyn:

Our midwives and midwifery educators meeting on Koru Island in Second
life is this Sunday. We will be meeting in a New Zealand bush setting,
with New Zealand bird song in the background. We have a large screen
