I got a last minute opportunity (thanks, In Kenzo!) to check out the exhibition area of the Web2.0 Expo at the Javitz Center today. Very nerdy, very cool. I got to see this neat demo of the Microsoft Surface interface, which is really impressive up close.
On the exhibition floor, I saw some cool demos of different telepresence and distance meeting technologies, the most impressive of which was the LifeSize meeting room. I got a lot of ideas about what makes effective distance meetings from these demos, which I think have applicability to Second Life as a convening space. I'll have to have a think about it and then write it here later.
