Real-world snow vs. Virtual Boston

Deed to Boston IslandDespite the first epic snowstorm of the season, we had a great turnout at Emerson College and on Boston Island yesterday for the Hub2 pilot wrapup and Phase II launch. We successfully handed over the “Deed” to Boston Island over to the City of Boston in real life and the key to Boston Island in Second Life. (Due to a minor glitch we actually impaled “HisHonorMenino” with the key, but all was fixed soon enough).

Each group also presented their projects with much gusto, and I’ll post links to the online videos whenever they’re up. There’s also a video recording of the event — a capture of the live stream — which I’ll link to as well.

While we didn’t get as much media coverage as we’d hoped — it’s hard to compete with the spectacle of 12 inches of snow in as many hours — here’s the Berkeley Beacon’s take on Hub2.
