Our Avatar in Cairo
These pictures come from Virtualpolitik pal Bernhard Drax, who attended a recent State Department event in Second Life for "bringing together architects in the West and Egypt who all use virtual worlds in their professional work." Not only did the line-up include my fellow panelist from the State of Play conference, William May, but also it featured one of my real life friends, architect David Denton, who explains his Cairo collaboration with Amr Attia here. Denton, who is known as DB Bailey in Second Life, has even given popular tours to my digital rhetoric class, as we talk about the rhetoric of built environments. More details about the event are available on this announcement.
