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
(http://www.facebook.com/#/photo.php?pid=3288486&id=702428291).  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?
