Harvard explores the case against Addis

    You may remember Harvard Law School’s extrusion into Second Life, via the Harvard Extension Program, particularly the Evidence at Large subject on trial advocacy and evidence that took place in January this year, exploring the Bragg vs Linden Lab case. It was certainly one of the more interesting and fascinating things I’ve seen and done in Second Life so far.

    Tomorrow (Wednesday), at 4PM SLT (US Pacific), there will be a second mock trial. This one will be exploring the case/charges against Paul Addis – the man who allegedly set fire to the Burning Man ahead of time. Second Life users are invited to attend and observe, or to serve on the jury. If you’re interested, get on down to Harvard’s Berkman Island with a little time to spare.

    Incidentally, if you haven’t looked at this course (lectures and office hours are open to at-large participants – no fees and no enrollment) you really should take a good look at what they’ve got going on. It really is a treat.
