Webheads and Webheads' HQ EduNation Second Life
- Dear avartarial Webheads � I mean Webheads with active avatars who are
freguently or sometimes active in Second Life. I have been trying to get
this message out for days but must do it now before I go off to the IATEFL
conference in Brighton next week..
First of all, thanks for signing on the wiki so kindly created for us by
Vance. If there are still SL webheads who have not signed in, please do so

talks, presentation there, inworld, every month or so in the context of his
These suggestions are all very well, but they are top down � they come
primarily from me. So they are proposals, just an individual's proposals,
and the idea of this message is to find out if there is any general
agreement that increased activity by webheads centred around the weheads HQ
in Second Life EduNation is a worthwhile idea.
If you are at all interested in participating, just reply briefly to this
message onlist, so that everyone is kept informed, and then I will call a
meeting in Second Life � at the Webheads� HQ.
I did put up a sign on the HQ - but it is rather pathetic. Who can replace
it with something better?
I've suggested above an inworld meeting even though I am going to be
travelling for next three weeks. My instinct is that we should meet soon and
decide on a plan of action - if there is some support for the initiative I

Not for the first time: Thanks Heike and Randall.
