Games for Change panel : Virtual Activism

Panelists: Susan Tenby (TechSoup); Evonne Heyning (Amoration); Jeska Dzwigalski (Linden Lab); moderated by Beth Kanter.

This panel focused almost exclusively on Second Life but didn’t touch what I felt to be the most important issue facing not just Games for Change but the entire realm of online activism: translating “awareness” into action. The mention of Camp Darfur brought to mind Ethan Zuckerman’s critique of Second Life from a year ago.

We tackled the question of achieving offline activism through online involvement at this morning’s breakfast. I’m trying to find a wiki or something where we can post notes from that discussion.
