    I hope you will be live-streaming and/or recording these talks, because the line-up sounds amazing!

      Hi Carrie,
      Sooo good to “read” your voice, Carrie. We are going to video record the seminar but not stream it. The seminar is held at CBS and we would face too many technical issues if we were to stream it – but the recordings will be available after the seminar so in case you want to see them just let us know.
      (I still have your Christmas card on my table and each time I look at it, it changes into an animated card calling for an answer!)
      Greetings, also to Chris ;-)

        I would also be very interesting in hearing more from this seminar. Innovation and Virtual worlds are topics that is closely related to our research at We are currently planning new projects around this topic.

  2. Mika Rantakokko, Center for Internet Excellence, Finland says

    Indeed the topics presented in the seminar are very interesting. Unfortunately during the session I’m in an another interesting meeting in Denmark, that is to say Future Internet Assembly in Aalborg, so I cannot participate the session. I would really much appreciate if I would also get the possibility to see the presentations afterwards, and perhaps also presentations. This might also be a topic to discuss if it would be possible start preparing project(s).

    I too would be interested in the recorded version! Thanks so much!
