Well, this weekend is, in England, the traditional time of mudbaths (photo credit), loud music and quack crystal healers that constitutes the Glastonbury festival. For geeks and those of us who live in another country (if not another world) the Guardian newspaper has teamed up with Intel to provide a three day music festival in Second Life. This might be an opportunity to give this bizarre world, constructed entirely of electrons, a try whilst also hearing some music. Of course, you will no doubt come across all sorts of strange people there - but if it gets too heavy, skip over to the education zones including the NMC Campus.
Speaking of the NMC (New Media Consortium), they have produced an entertaining promotional video for their next conference (in 2008 at Princeton University).
