With the excellent help of Graham Davies' relatives, the official ownership of the CALICO/EUROCALL VW SIG Ning has now been passed over to yours truly. One issue that we had been experiencing was that our Ning was maxxed out at 150 members, the most allowed in the cheaper version of the Ning. I pitiched in some money to upgrade us, so now the Ning can have up to 10,000 members. I think that should cover things nicely. I'm looking for input on future directions of the…

Sorry for the short notice, but I just found out that Kristi Jauregi Ondarra, who is the interim head of the EUROCALL VW SIG (taking over from our departed friend Graham Davies) was able to secure internet access and a projector, etc. for the EUROCALL Conference VW SIG meeting.
This means that those of us who could not go to the conference this year can still join in for the SIG meeting via Second Life. If you are interested, meet us at the EduNation Sandbox.
The SIG meeting…Continue

If you have not yet heard the sad news, Graham Davies passed away on June 20th after a long battle against cancer.
Whether you knew him as Graham Davies in the real world or as Groovy Winkler in Second Life (or--like me--you were lucky enough to have known him in both variations), I am sure you share the same feelings as I do--that he was a great…Continue
