How is your life connected? Would your experiences be richer if you could realize your vision of a connected life? Networked virtual environments provide a way for us to connect with each other, and these platforms provide a rich visual and social experience. Another aspect of being connected is the ability to access your media, your friends, and your real world environment from anywhere and anyplace.To demonstrate the power of the Human Network, Cisco Systems earlier this year invited people to share their opinions on the future of the Connected Life. Cisco’s expert panel has evaluated and judged more than 600 contest entries and determined one grand prize (US$10k) and ten runner-up winners (US$1k), all of which will be announced on Tuesday, October 30, 2007 at Noon SLT. Location: http://slurl.com/secondlife/cisco%20systems%201/71/36/22/Cisco will also demo some concepts of winning ideas on Cisco Systems Sim 1 Stage. Using a networked virtual environment such as Second Life allows the creation of content to convey ideas for a connected life and share the vision in a medium where people can connect with other. Join us Tuesday at our Second Life campus to share in the event and network with other people around the concept of a connected life!
