Fellow Blogger blogs on Autism talk


I was recently asked by Mariano DiFabio to give a Second Life lecture on Autism in virtual worlds for his New York-based biopharm neetup group. We had about 20 attendees (avatars) at the lecture at SL-Labs and what was planned as a short talk on the potential of virtual environments for people with Autism lasted over an hour. This talk was given using Second Life's voice capability and worked well. There were a number of important questions raised at the end, especially some that opened up the topic of how skills learned in-world might generalise to real life.
I look forward to following up on many of the new projects I found out about and talking with the new freinds I made at the meeting. Here's a link to Mariano's report on the talk. Avelient BioPharm Blog

  1. I am very happy to read this. This is the kind of manual that needs to be given and not the random misinformation that's at the other blogs. Appreciate your sharing this best posting.
