What a great conference! There were some really interesting panel discussions. I was invited to play the role of Eckart in a German-language performance of Brecht's "Baal" in a simulation of a 1920s theatre in Berlin. I also learned about the Dogme approach to teaching foreigh languages, and I attended a sample course in Modern Greek.

The conference was attended by people all over the world, brought together in this exciting 3D world.

Graham is being polite. My avatar bungled stabbing Eckart and Graham had to kill himself. But you can get away with murder - even not murdering - in Second Life and I doubt if anyone in the audience realised they had witnessed a suicide.
