Cisco Live in Second Life

June 9, 2008 - 4 Comments

Last year we worked to extend our Cisco Live (formerly known as Networkers) conference into Second Life via on-demand video of some of the keynotes and panel discussions from the physical event as well as unique Q&A’s within Second Life on topics as varied as Data Center 3.0 and Digital Media and the Consumer. The feedback was positive from the in world attendees and a physical conference attendee submitted a challenge to take it even further, see below image. So this year we are taking it to infinity and beyond…sorry couldn’t help myself.This year we will feature on-demand technical break out session/s, collaborative gaming, several live Cisco Live in Second Life TechChats…and last but certainly not least a live QA in world with John Chambers, Cisco CEO, on collaboration. See below for a detailed schedule. I hope to see you out in June for what should prove to be an exciting weeks worth of virtual events and tours! For those who can’t join us in Orlando or Second Life you can still take take advantage of this learning opportunity by attending the Second Life events via this web blog, where they will be featured live and on-demand.

  1. Hi! I am taking a graduate information technology class and one of the topics I am looking into is how company's use second life to interact with customers. Specifically, I am looking into how successful companies feel their second life presence is and how they are using second life to increase their overall performance. Any insight into how second life to improve the overall customer experience or boost your business would be greatly appreciated - Thanks!

  2. I went to cisco in SL, but there are about 6 of them. Most of which were empty.

  3. This is the best thing you could have done. It is the best solution you could have ever taken. Frankly, I was really wondering when will this cross your mind. I am glad to find out that you are bringing out some news to it. Congratulations!

  4. Hello, my name is Luisa Dunn and I would like to reach out to Cisco's Second Lifers to find out if there are any based in Emerging. I am new to SL and would like to start meeting up with people on SL to learn more about it so I can start arranging virtual careers fairs for our candidates in CA and Sales in EM.
