On Wed., Aug. 20, 2008, members of the Public Works Group will be giving a presentation at the American Public Works Association (APWA) Annual Congress & Exposition in New Orleans. The presentation is a workshop to introduce other public works professionals to virtual worlds and other online Web 2.0 tools. In preparation for the workshop, those who have registered have been invited to sign up for a free Second Life account and visit us on Public Works island. We will be hosting visitors and helping orient them to Second Life on Sat., Aug. 2, 2008, between 1pm and 5pm. If anyone else is interested in joining us, please feel free to register for an account at the Public Works Group Web site and stop by Public Works island. If you are already a member of Second Life and have an interest in Public Works, we invite you to stop over and hang out with the rest of us. And if you are going to attend this year’s Congress in New Orleans, consider signing up for the workshop.
