These are exciting times for Architecture and Second Life!

Sun Microsystems brought Cameron Sinclair to Second Life last month. Autodesk brought rockstars Sergio Palleroni and Chris Luebkeman for some unforgettable events. This week, a phenomenal line-up of Second Life events was projected at the Design Museum in London for the Royal Institute of British Architects ‘Architecture Week’ (thanks again to Fraser Fonda!).
