Sounds quite interesting.

How long did it take to get all the IESG participants
set up in the meeting once they got into SL?

Can large 3D spaces with large numbers of participants
be accommodated from an audio and presentation materials
standpoint?  For example, how would a virtual auditorium
work in SL?

Is anybody interested in virtual reality meetings?  I now work for Linden
Lab, creators of Second Life.  Among the many other things that go on in SL,
one can run effective meetings thanks to the stereo voice conferencing
support and aid of props such as slideshow boards.

The IESG held its first informal "telechat" in Second Life (SL) last
Thursday, and here's a snapshot
(  The venue
is "IETF Island", which Linden Lab is hosting on behalf of the IETF and I'm
the region administrator.  IETF people are welcome to use the location (or
anywhere else you like in SL) for conversations.  If you know me IRL (In
Real Life), or need setup/permission help with IETF Island, feel free to
ping me in SL where I'm "Rue Linden".

I also created a Second Life group called "IETF" which is free to
join.   I'm not entirely sure what its long-term role will be, it may
be too unwieldy to have a group for all IETFers to chat in-world.

What do vmeet participants think of this alternative? has anybody already
tried it?
