I’ve done a number of projects in the virtual world Second Life (SL):
Worked with the International Spaceflight Museum for many years, including a year as vice president. [More Details]
Co-founded and managed the SL Science Center group, which keeps track of science-related events, places, research and more in SL.
Co-founded and acted as a senator in the SciLands, a group of people and organizations doing science-related projects who wanted to be geographically close to each other in SL.
Coded a Holo-Emitter System for SL (which operates similar to the holo-emitters in Star Trek).
Designed and produced an animated, audio-narrated flying carpet tour of Lord Rosse’s Monster Telescopes. [More Details].
Designed, coded and built interactive exhibits about color vision deficiency for the UK’s National Physical Laboratory (NPL). [More Details]
Created a set of science exhibits for the University of Denver (DU). [More Details]
Built exhibits and helped with events for the UK National Physical Laboratory’s NanoLands project. [More Details]
Prototyped some SL exhibits for the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Designed and built two custom SL Registration and Orientation Experiences. [More Details]
Terraformed, landscaped, and added buildings to the UK Future Focus sim (associated with a UK think tank named Futurefocus, and later futurefocus@dti).
Planned and promoted many SL events (particularly science-related events). [More Details]
Wrote a blog for Nature Network about science-related projects and events going on in Second Life, titled “Science in the Metaverse.” That blog is now archived on SciLogs.com (which is where all Nature Network blogs got moved).
Recorded and edited the audio of many MICA Popular Talks. MICA is/was the Meta Institute for Computational Astrophysics.
