If You're in the SF Area Tonight...

Philip Rosedale, one of the founders of Second Life, will be speaking at the monthly Seminars About Long-term Thinking series run by Long Now. (He's a last-minute replacement for Frank Fukuyama, who apparently nearly reached his own End of History with a motorcycle crash last week.) From the announcement:

Philip Rosedale didn't just create a company with "Second Life," he created a world--- or rather, he set in motion a world to be created by its occupants. (In this he is like other SALT presenters, Jimmy Wales with Wikipedia and Will Wright with "Spore.")

Building a digital world teaches a lot about rethinking and better managing the real world. That's part of the attraction of "Second Life," and of tonight's talk...

"'Second Life:' What Do We Learn If We Digitize EVERYTHING?" Philip Rosedale, Cowell Theater, Fort Mason, San Francisco, 7pm, TONIGHT, November 30. The lecture starts promptly at 7:30pm. Admission is free (a $10 donation is welcome, not required).

The talk will be made available for download in a few weeks (typically), so if you're not in SF, you'll still be able to hear it.

I wonder if he'll talk about CopyBot...
