Prototyping a Real World Urban Development in Second Life

In June, when I was on a panel discussion with Eric Gordon, during Linden Lab’s birthday celebration, I was very inspired and impressed with his work – especially given my own interest in the use of virtual worlds for collaboration.  Now they are taking on a new project that I expect will raise the bar for using Second Life to prototype real-life urban environments. 

“Residents engage in a process that employs 3D virtual tools and problem-solving techniques to articulate a common vision reflecting the participants’ values. Goals of Hub2 include strengthening civic engagement with public spaces, involving population segments traditionally left out of development planning, and providing a constructive and productive community input process for public design.”
