Together with Thomas Praus (aka DJ Stylewalker) and Max Senges I’ve recently got the chance to write a summer university school for Barcelona-based university UOC (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya), as well as a book to go with it. Both the course and the book are all about virtual worlds, particularly Second Life.
I’ve always had some issues with Second Life, but I do think there’s great potential there if these issues can be overcome. But for the time being, I’m thrilled to see that our publisher Editorial UOC has sent us the Spanish translation of our book for proof-reading – which means it’s about to go into print. Yay!
Our publisher has also agreed to let us publish the English draft under a non-commercial CC license, which is great. Thanks, UOC! You can find the draft on this page: Virtual Worlds (Book).
- The summer university course is on right now: Mundos Virtuales. Un paseo por Second Life. (Thanks to Alvaro, who’s been doing a great job teaching it!)
