    Through my work in Second Life’s many healthcare communities, I was invited to present through Second Life as one of the many events sponsored by the European science communities as part of the CORDIS Science Week. The idea was to bring science and scientists to the “man” on the street through a big splash of events across many countries and science organizations — presentations, posters, parades…. Italy did something extra special, where they coordinated simultaneous presentations across four cities, with presenters in many locations, but all presenting to the different auditoriums and locations at the same time. So I was sitting in my living room in Michigan presenting to an audience of the general public interested in science in four cities in Italy! I don’t know how it worked out on their end, but I was very impressed with the idea.
