Second Life & Open Source (client side)
OpenACS / DotLRN is due to its community based concept quite well suited as a counter part for SL, which provides in addition to a user-built 3d world with avatars e.g. virtual presence, spacial awareness, instant messaging, multimedia support (playing videos, etc). The interest in SL is especially in the industry very high.
Second Life accepts XML-RPC calls and can be programmed with the Linden Scripting language.
As for the OpenACS/DotLRN conference: Since nobody aside Carlos expressed interest, we have not reserved a SLOT for a SL BOF. Jun, do you have the chance to come to Vienna? Rocael, when will you be arriving?
The urls that Gustaf give to us are very interesting and it seems could be a good idea to have some kind of integration.
