Last spring I started gathering information on cultural heritage sites in Second Life, in the interest of keeping track of the many projects ongoing in Second Life. Out of this came CHiSL, or Cultural Heritage in Second Life, a loose group of projects and individuals interested in the topic. I finally got around to creating (yet another) blog that will be a central place for news on these projects and developments with a class that I am helping out with, a Second Life DeCal (class by undergraduates taught by an undergraduate) that is based around OKAPI island, the Çatalhöyük reconstruction hosted by the University of California, Berkeley.
Here’s the link to the blog:
Any other contributions (Electric Archaeologist, I’m looking at you) would be welcome. Of course, I still need to put up the information from the WAC session, so I’m already behind.
One thought on “CHiSL”
Having been called out, I’d better suggest something, eh?
Two of note, right off the bat:
