Cornell Professor Robert Bloomfield, in association with Metaversed, has announced Metanomics 07, a speaker series focused on business and policy in the metaverse. A partial speaker list has been posted (nominations are still open) and it includes a diverse and impressive list of academics, business leaders, and commentators from a cross-section of the professional metaverse. Several of the presentations will be of particular interest to readers who follow virtual law. From the announcement:
While events take place in Second Life, and we will have a number of sessions on the vibrant Second Life business community, our scope embraces all of the Metaverse. The complete list of speakers includes virtual world visionaries Julian Dibbell and Ted Castronova, legal scholars Bryan T. Camp and Joshua Fairfield, Second Life tycoon Anshe Chung, US Congressional Staffer Dan Miller. We also expect to have representatives from a number of key businesses in the Metaverse, such as IBM, Intel, SAP, and Cisco.
Events will be broadcast on SLCN.tv, and will be archived on Metaversed. This looks like a great set of presentations, and they’re already on my calendar.
