I am recruiting for a 3rd co-chair for the SDForum Virtual World SIG.
It's a topic I thought someone in this group might be interested in.
It's a volunteer position but there are some requirements:
1.)You must active, knowledgeable, and downright passionate about
virtual worlds of all platforms. It's good to know the topics of the
Metaverse Roadmap as examples.
2.)You must be able to be a futurist of sorts to program relevant
events at least 6-9 months in advance along the lines of the Metaverse
Roadmap topic lines.
3.)You must be local to Bay Area and able to help out with on-site
logistics of running the sig according to SDForum guidelines.
Virtual worlds are among the most important concerns of futurists
today - be a part of it! Can't do it? Recommend someone! The flyer
I've distributed elsewhere is below.
See you tomorrow at SAP - If you're interested let's chat and see you
there (after 730 or so).
See you there,

Do you live in virtual worlds?
Do you treat your virtual friends better than your "real" ones?
Have you ever introduced yourself using your avatar name?
Then you might be virtual worlds-obsessed enough to be a Co-Chair of
the Virtual World SIG !
This is a volunteer opportunity but a good one! We meet bi-monthly
in Palo Alto. The group has been ongoing for nearly 2 years. You
will join 2 existing Co-chairs Bob Ketner (Studio SFO) and Corey
Bridges (Multiverse) to plan and produce these engaging events that
have been the source of groundbreaking collaboration in virtual worlds.
Primary duties include: Collaborating on selecting and approaching
speakers, coordinating the live event in Palo Alto and also inside
virtual worlds. You will also become involved in SDForum as a
volunteer which includes many benefits on its own.
You should be enthusiastic and unbiased about the various virtual
worlds platforms. Also important is a forward-looking insight that can
project relevant events and important topics 6-9 months in advance.
To apply please contact Bob Ketner bob@...
with a brief bio
and why you would like to volunteer for it. A list of 2-3 suggested
speakers for a SIG meeting and possible topics you would consider
important would also be good. Interested parties will have to be
approved by SDForum to become Co-Chair.
