IdeaCity Event in Second Life: Spirituality, Space and Media

IdeaCity is the “Ted Talks of Canada”. Held once a year, it brings together global thought leaders to explore a range of themes and topics.

You can attend IdeaCity in Second Life. The first day was today and there are two days left in the event. Visit the Metanomics Web site for more details on how to attend.

This year, in addition to selling $4,000/per person tickets to the live event, you can also attend virtually in Second Life. At 2,000 Lindens per day, not a bad deal, in spite the collapse of the Linden currency (hey, why cash it out at those rates when you can attend IdeaCity instead!)

For tomorrow only, we’ll also be refunding the full admission price for one of every five attendees. You will receive your refund directly from myself and is our gesture of thanks for supporting the spread of ideas. :)

Tomorrow, Thursday, IdeaCity really has a pretty stellar line-up. The morning sessions cover Spirtuality and Ethics & the Environment. The afternoon covers Exploration and Space and Media. All of them fall under the broader umbrella theme of the conference, which is Women.
