IBM Second Life evangelist on BBC Newsnight

Ian has already blogged this over at eightbar… this week’s series on technology on the BBC Newsnight programme features some coverage of one of our internal discussion groups, plus footage of IBM Hursley and a short interview with Ian himself.

There’s a video (skip to around 7m30s in) – or else look for The Pearly Gates of Cyberspace here. Alternatively, you can watch it on TV tonight (Wed 10th January, BBC2, 2230 I think).

I thought I’d post a couple of screenshots from the meeting, since there wasn’t a huge amount of in-world footage. Click through for larger images.

We started off inside the house, and discussed some topics around identity and virtual worlds. I’m on the right, near the front. This was early on in the session, before everyone arrived.

Later on, we moved outside for a more free-form discussion. That’s me on the right with the red hair…

  1. I seem to have an alien on some sort of advanced transportation device attacking my arm in that last picture!

    It was very interesting to see what came out of the cutting room- good use of epred on his guitar and having a chuckle.

    Must remember to hit record later- a 15th of a second of fame! (Not my longest TV exposure but then I only want to be rich, not famous! 🙂

  2. That would be Algernon on his segway-like device.

    You were actually shown saying / typing something. So clearly you had something to say.

    Look out for the Lara Croft-alike! 🙂
