New Speakers Announced For BlogHer '08 in Second Life

BlogHer Original Post

We've seen blogging impact an election, raise money for causes, and provide needed information- and that is just the tip of the iceberg.

On Saturday, July 19th from 1:45pm-3:00pm, BlogHer in Second Life will present it's fourth and final Second Life - exclusive session: Using Second Life For Good

BlogHer Co-Founder Elisa Camahort Page has put together a stellar panel of women using Second Life to impact the real world.

Session speakers include:

Susan Tenby of Compumentor/TechSoup and is their Second Life community manager. Susan recently addressed Congress as part of a hearing on "Online Virtual Worlds: Applications and Avatars in a User-Generated Medium."

Connie Reece- a social media guru who is also one of the brains behind the Frozen Pea Fund, a fundraising effort to battle cancer inspired by the online community of Twitter.

Jennifer Cole and Aleja Ospina are the women behind GimpGirl.com. The GimpGirl Community was "Founded in 1998 by women with disabilities to serve the needs of our community through various on-line mediums. For many years we were primarily using mailing lists, our web site and later on LiveJournal, Facebook and MySpace, but at the end of last year our educational contacts and supporters encouraged us (and gave us the resources) to expand on to Second Life. Through hard work by our core group, as well as the help of volunteers we developed a parcel on Second Life that now has weekly group meetings full of women with disabilities from all walks of life."

Four amazing women who I have no doubt many things to share with you during the Saturday Second Life exclusive session.

Make sure you register for BlogHer in Second Life-because if you can't make it to San Fransisco there is MUCH you can take away from a virtual conference with the BlogHer community.

We have badges too!
