“The Scilands panel at SLCC presented three projects, â€œSecond Health – Visiting A London Hospital of the Futureâ€ (picture above), â€œDemystifying Nuclear Power,â€ and NOAAâ€™s â€œSecond Earth in Second Life.â€ These innovative projects put Second Life center stage in a vision to design better worlds for tomorrow (see also Maya Realities). All the panel members are key players in the formation and development of SciLands – â€œan emerging Second Life continent dedicated to serious applications.â€ SciLands was only founded in January of this year. But the number of projects has escalated rapidly – now up to 34 islands and members from 3 continents.”Read more of this great post! Tags: secondlife, second health, sl, hospital, simulation

will be meeting at the new Science Center location to discuss ideas to
improve it. The current setup there is just a stand-in to get you
thinking. All are welcome.

Examining the prospect of human life extension
Dr Gautam Tendulkar will be discussing how CSIRO is using Second Life to research the limits of virtual worlds, data exchange between worlds and custom interfaces.17 September 2007, 2 AM Second Life Time (Pacific timezone)
Researching the limits of virtual worlds
a discussion with Phil Holliger from the Medical Research Council Molecular Biology Lab in Cambridge. Phil works with ancient DNA: DNA samples retrieved from specimens of forensic, paleontological or archaeological interest. DNA naturally degrades over time, making it very difficult to amplify and analyse, and Phil will be talking about a new way to more accurately repair the damage, which he recently tried out on a 60,000 year-old cave bear.13 September 2007 at ?6 PM GMT?

They gave me 45 mins, but as always I had trouble with deciding what to tell and show. There are some many exciting subjects that are worth mentioning. So I made a choice, and did not tell all that was on my basic list. I must confess, some things I just plainly forgot to tell, by the stress of being in front of 150 people working in medical libraries all around Sweden. Here’s my list of:
Things I wanted to tell but had no time for (or just forgot;-)
LibraryToolbar is a blog that can be used for sharing and collaboration around Library Toolbars. I am thinking a instructional things, olverviews of excisting searchstrings, toolbar icons, etc. So If you are interested, please send me an email, and I can put you up as contributor as well!The Netvibes Karolinska Institutet Searchbox is actually based on an exciting beta version of a Karolinska Institutet Library Toolbar. If you have a toolbar with installed search options, you can easily configure search boxes in html that can start that quicksearch function on practically any webpage or intranet.That I already helped in creating some other Library Toolbars too:LSH Library Toolbar (Landspitali, Iceland)
Helsebiblioteket OsloNCRC National Cancer Research Croatia LibraryNLK (National Medical Libary, Cz)Medisinsk Bibliotek Toolbar, UBITMed TrondheimZNB Medische Bibliotheek and more
That I will gladly help anybody with creating their medical library toolbar as I see the sharing and exchange of information on this subject (and others) very important. It does not matter if you have a one-person library or a larger one, just send me an email.
I am getting more and more experienced in giving workshops on making them as well.

Caledon Library Sponsors a Story-telling Session at the Falling Anvil Pub,
Tales of Harvest Time
September 11th, 2008, 6pm SLT
Falling Anvil Public House
Come and celebrate the Caledon Harvest Festival. Bring your own stories, poems and reminisces of the nippy air, falling leaves, and all the rest of your favorite things that remind you of Autumn. Stories of sowing and reaping, of things coming to fruition, of harvests both real and metaphorical are welcome, as are tales of Ghosties and Ghoulies and things that go bump in the night. In commemoration of the day, stories of the cycle of life, of how we live and how we die, are especially welcome. All storytellers, raconteurs, and creative liars are welcome, as are those who merely enjoy a good yarn.
Sponsored by The Caledon Library and the Clan of Seafarers and storytellers, hosted by Aldo Stern and Kirawill Collingwood, and brought to you by the letter G.

Tuesday Augues 28th @ 6:00 PM SLT
The Jazz Club SL Library 2.0’s new jazz club is a welcome addition to the Information Archipelago as a place where librarians, educators, volunteers, and SL residents can relax, listen to great jazz, dance and chat. If you have been looking for a quality jazz club, a romantic place to dance, or just good company and good music, the Jazz Cat should be on your list of favorites. We are planning an official opening party sometime in September when Infotainment Island is complete, but we’re so excited about the club we wanted to share it with everyone now. So, in honor of jazz great Charlie Parker who was born August 29, 1920, please join us for a night of hot jazz on the lake. … Sigue leyendo
I must say I’m amazed at the number and quality of weekly presentations in the SciFoo Lives On sessions in Second Life. This week Jean-Claude and Bertalan (Berci) MeskÃ³ moderated "Medicine and Web 2.0". I won’t post the full transcript, but I did learn of some interesting links.
One thing is I don’t know if all the in-world presentations are also available externally as PowerPoint/SlideShare/PDF/whatever.
* List of medical blogs in Englishhttp://medblog.nl/2007/08/15/sneak-preview-ranking-english-written-medblogs/
* HONcode standard for trustworthy health and medical web siteshttp://www.hon.ch/HONcode/Conduct.html
* Healthcare Blogger Code of Ethicshttp://medbloggercode.com/
Above two are perhaps interesting additions to the Peer Review Logo discussion.
* Ann Myers Medical Center – Sprott Shaw College – Hospital Islandhttp://slurl.com/secondlife/Hospital/132/119/49
* Berci’s Medicine 2.0 presentation and extensive link listhttp://scienceroll.com/medicine-20/
* BioWizard medical article ranking tool (articles from PubMed)http://www.biowizard.com/
* TiroMed social network for physicians and med students ("your portal to the medisphere")http://www.tiromed.com/
I have added these all to Connotea with tag "medicine 2.0"
UPDATE: Jean-Claude has posted the transcript and other notes. ENDUPDATE
UPDATE 2007-08-28: Berci has also posted his experience in SciFoo lives on in Second Life: Web 2.0 and Medicine. ENDUPDATE
Next week will be Tuesday Sept 4th (since Monday is a holiday) with topic "definitions of open science".

Fifteen people attended last night’s session in Second Life of R U A Twit. The HUDs that I gave out with notecards didn’t work, but the good news is you can get your own! My notes from the session, a full transcript (thanks to 50 Winx) follow.
What is Twitter? Twitter is a microblogging application for text. The practice of posting to Twitter is called “tweeting.” Post what you are doing, right now, via web, IM, phone, or through the SL Tweets HUD in Second Life. Messages must be less than 140 characters. Your updates appear on the web for your friends to see, and they can comment on your posts. The friending feature makes it a social networking tool. Similar websites include NowThen, Jaiku, and MoodMill.
To sign up for Twitter:
Go to http://www.twitter.com
Click Join for Free” to get to the Create a Free Account screen
Complete the following:
Click “I accept. Create my account”
Using SL Tweets
What is SL Tweets?SL Tweets is a Heads Up Display (HUD) that allows you to post to Twitter from Second Life. It was created by is available for L$1 from http://SLExchange.com
To use your Tweet HUD, right click on SLTweets and select “Wear,” then type “/123 help” for a list of commands. Look for the command to set up your username and password. While you are wearing your HUD in world, you get a window where your (and your friends) posts appear, so you don’t need to switch to a web browser to keep up with your tweeting. When you post with SL Tweets, commands are sent through a channel (in this case, 123) by posting /123 in your regular SL chat field.

Welcome to the August 20, 2007 edition of Carnival of the Infosciences. Thanks to everyone who submitted stuff and all the others who asked me what the heck I was talking about. We got a huge response and I think allowing submissions via del.icio.us has helped participation somewhat (thought I think of carninfo being for information about meat!) go social software! Speacial thanks to Chad who really did most of the heavy lifting this time around as I tried to figure out how it all worked.
