Part Two with weekly comment from Tara, her machinema on "Flexi-Sculpies", plus SL London news from Debs Regent, more virtual Dr Who and the inworld Dresden Gallery. Also a "whew" from Mal who announced the likelihood of a midweek edition to catch up with what we didn't fit in.

Understanding Islam through Virtual Worlds: Collaboration, Culture and Community

The product of a year of research across the Internet and four continents, Dancing Ink Productions' Rita J. King and Joshua S. Fouts explored the potential of virtual worlds as a tool for public diplomacy and a venue for cultural dialog with Islamic Cultures as senior fellows at the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs funded by a grant from the Lounsbery Foundation. The project also produced policy recommendations for the Obama Administration and a graphic book. All available at
