[0:55] Lucida Skytower: Hi Leroy/Leigh! :-)

[0:55] You: Hi Lucinda

[0:55] You: yep

[0:55] Lucida Skytower: :-)

[0:55] You: so.. um

[0:55] You: who are you?

[0:55] You: let me check the wiki

[0:56] Lucida Skytower: sorry, I changed my avatar - I'm Pipi Tinlegs, aka Amy Lenzo

[0:56] You: Oh g'day

[0:56] Lucida Skytower: do you prefer to use voice? Or written chat?

[0:56] You: one of the things I really don't like about SL is the split personality it forces on me

[0:56] jokay Wollongong is Online

[0:57] You: oh voice

[0:57] You: if it works

[0:57] Lucida Skytower: I know what you mean :-)

[1:08] Lucida Skytower: www.beautydialogues.com

[1:09] jokay Wollongong: HI Al! ;)

[1:09] jokay Wollongong: are you voicing ;)

[1:09] jokay Wollongong: or txting>? ;)

[1:10] You: Amy/Lucida = World Cafe

[1:10] You: (I'll take some notes

[1:11] You: for others who couldn't be here)

[1:11] Lucida Skytower: thanks Leroy!

[1:11] You: Conversation about how we build a sense of shared ownership in Second Life projects

[1:12] You: Jo reflecting on how much work it can become when you are central to a project

[1:12] You: And there is a noticable "inner and outer circle" in the Jokaydia community

[1:13] You: Jokaydia (or Jo Kay) has been developing educational SL community for at least 3 years now

[1:14] You: Jo organises events in Jokaydia to stimulate the Jokaydia project

[1:14] You: such as mini conference, member exhibitions, and web sites that relate to Jokaydia

[1:15] You: Building information structures around the community

[1:15] Johnnie Wendt is Offline

[1:15] You: Facebook groups

[1:15] You: etc

[1:15] You: Flickr image tags

[1:16] You: Discussion about the "JoKaydia" brand

[1:17] You: and the positive and negative impacts on that shared ownership objective

[1:17] You: Jo believes that people in the community do have a sense of ownership (and brand loyalty) to Jokaydia

[1:18] You: Amy asks about the exhibitions

[1:18] You: Jo says it was part of the idea to focus on things more outside EDUCATION

[1:18] You: and diversify interests

[1:18] You: 2 art exhibitions at the moment

[1:18] You: an immersive space

[1:19] You: and an exhibition from the Australian Environment organisation

[1:19] You: there is a 3rd exhibition (jo just remembers)

[1:20] You: Konrad Glokowski's photo exhibition from his work exchange in Kenya

[1:20] You: so that's a connection of art and education

[1:20] You: basically Jokaydia tries to draw interesting things and people into the space

[1:21] You: that stimulate interest

[1:21] You: talk about the "Virtual Classroom Project"

[1:22] You: they are trying to attract a girl to the project this time

[1:22] You: Jokaydians are also working on a project in Teen Second Life

[1:22] You: a restricted space for school children

[1:23] You: also exploring Open Sim

[1:23] You: that can be set up on a local network

[1:23] You: such as IN a school

[1:24] You: Al (with us in teh meeting) works on Quest Atlantus - another virtual world

[1:24] You: a safe and secure space for 9 - 12 year olds

[1:24] You: and is internationally networked

[1:24] You: :)

[1:25] You: Jo mentions Bron Stucky uses Quest Atlantus

[1:27] You: Leigh asks Al for coments about Jo's objective for a shared community

[1:27] You: Al says such a community should be diverse

[1:27] You: so the idea of broadening scope outside educational topics is good for bringing in a wider range of people

[1:28] You: and the opportunity to build members sense of space - such as opportunities for members to build

[1:29] You: Jo observes a transition in the community from "what is Second Life" focus to...

[1:29] You: "what things can we do with SL"

[1:29] You: Al says:

[1:30] Johnnie Wendt is Online

[1:30] You: A lot of people drop their real life identity into SL, rather than exploring or extend alternative identies

[1:30] Je4ss Voom: boo!

[1:30] You: jo responds

[1:31] You: Je4ss joins

[1:31] You: Hi jess

[1:31] You: we are on voice

[1:31] Je4ss Voom: hi all ")

[1:31] Je4ss Voom: i will set up my headphones

[1:31] You: ok

[1:31] Al Lurton: hi Je4ss

[1:31] You: I'm taking notes

[1:32] Je4ss Voom: 'forget' to do? isn't exploration of self happening all the time? - external world whether FL or SL is always reflection of what is within

[1:34] You: discussion about identity

[1:34] You: some (many) prefer to explore alternative identity

[1:34] jokay Wollongong: Oooo.. hard!

[1:34] You: Amy / Lucida says she is using a new "alt" avatar

[1:34] You: and enjoys thinking about the range of new identies we can play with

[1:36] You: Jo says that the use of "alts" alternative avatars...

[1:36] You: is very useful for winning acceptance to other communities

[1:36] You: in SL

[1:36] You: But jo feels very disconnected from those alts

[1:37] You: Jo has a good friend in SL

[1:37] You: who explores cross gender in SL

[1:37] You: and observes that real life gender has no bearing on their SL relationship

[1:38] You: but Jo thinks there would be a tension if they met in real life

[1:39] You: Al agrees that having an alt to explore other communities is very useful

[1:39] You: and enlightening

[1:40] You: and perhaps a useful experience for children (in terms of Al thinking as an educator)

[1:40] You: Jo mentions the community shared tour

[1:40] You: where each member brings at least one land mark of some where in second life

[1:40] You: and the group go around together

[1:40] Je4ss Voom: can we do that now? :)

[1:41] You: good idea Je4ss

[1:41] You: so we all friending

[1:41] Je4ss Voom: how does one share a landmark?

[1:41] You: drag and drop Je4ss

[1:41] Je4ss Voom is Online

[1:41] Je4ss Voom: 'the' group?

[1:41] Je4ss Voom is Online

[1:42] Je4ss Voom: hello!

[1:42] Je4ss Voom: trying to get voice working

[1:42] You: no mic Jess?

[1:42] You: oh ok

[1:42] Je4ss Voom: am not quite used to using it yet so am a bit shy

[1:42] Al Lurton: ah Tassie?

[1:42] Je4ss Voom: i am already a member

[1:43] Je4ss Voom: /waves

[1:43] You: Leigh asks how has chat vs voice impacted on communication in SL

[1:43] Je4ss Voom: i am much more used to typing

[1:43] Je4ss Voom: used irc since age 5 or something :)

[1:43] You: jo thinks that voice had a positive impact for many people

[1:43] You: but there are a lot of people who still prefer text

[1:44] You: voice comes second though - Leigh thinks

[1:45] You: working with chat text first is a good way to start

[1:45] You: because we know everyone gets it

[1:45] You: voice doesn't work for some

[1:45] Je4ss Voom: not me, i dont have a life

[1:45] Je4ss Voom: i just sit in a dark room and eat pizza that gets shoved under the door

[1:45] Je4ss Voom: and grow mould

[1:45] You: Al, adds that some people are not in a quiet enough space to be able to use a mic for voice

[1:46] Je4ss Voom: leroy, why are you typing what's being said?

[1:46] You: and Al (and Leigh) have felt excluded when voice is used without any text transcript

[1:46] You: notes for those who couldn't be here

[1:46] Je4ss Voom: ah! good on you

[1:47] Je4ss Voom: some could fly

[1:47] Je4ss Voom: hover about

[1:47] You: Voice can add technical problems too

[1:47] You: some people give feedback

[1:48] You: others come through too soft of loud

[1:48] You: and many people using voice can put a big load on SL servers

[1:48] You: Jo has used Skype voice as a backup

[1:49] You: Amy says World Cafe uses small group IM that come together later

[1:50] You: QUT Dekka

[1:50] You: Terra Incognita

[1:50] You: Island in SL

[1:51] You: and has group chat features

[1:52] You: Amy says its good to use support people - one per small group

[1:52] jokay Wollongong: Terra incognita

[1:52] jokay Wollongong: Decka's Decks

[1:52] jokay Wollongong: Decka Mah
