The Second Life Grid Author Event
June 25, 2009
at The Magicians Colonnade

You’re invited to the official launch event for The Second Life Grid: The Official Guide to Communication, Collaboration, and Community Engagement. Be sure to bring your questions for author Kim Anubis (Kimberly Rufer-Bach). There’ll be prizes, including RL copies of the book, and free goodies for everyone.  After the main event, stick around for a snowball fight. There’s seating in two sims, Abracadabra and xyz, so if one is full, try the other. This is a text event, so you don’t need a headset. IM Argus Collingwood or Robin Sojourner for a teleport offer.
