The third annual BlogHer Conference, A World of Difference, is taking place on July 27 - July 29, 2007, in Chicago, IL. But if you can't join us physically, you now join us virtually by attending BlogHer in Second Life '07.
What It's About: A Brief Overview
BlogHer in Second Life will offer the opportunity to experience the Chicago conference live on the virtual platform Second Life, complete with general sessions, audio feeds, and even a virtual cocktail party! Similar to BlogHer '07 in Chicago, the BlogHer in Second Life virtual conference will feature an interactive format designed to inspire discussion.
In addition to the virtual activities taking place during the conference, BlogHer is offering your very own Second Life support system. If you are unfamiliar with Second Life, never fear. Queen Tureaud, aka Erin Kotecki Vest of Queen of Spain Blog will have office hours to help you get in and get on.
