Hub2 in the Globe again

This article on Second Life as a virtual meeting space mentions Hub2, though it’s hard to exactly piece the logic together, other than “academics are more willing to take risks than businesses,” which isn’t the interesting point. The interesting point is that running good meetings requires architecting space — whether real, virtual, or temporal. If more people who ran meetings gave more thought to what makes meetings work, the word “meeting” would not be greeted with such dread in the workplace.

Our major innovation at Hub2 wasn’t using Second Life; it was giving clear thought to how to engineer an experience that would lead to useful outcomes.
