It’d be fair to say that we weren’t really completely convinced about the emphasis JISC put on holding launches for their projects but it seems it was definitely worth it because, the press releases that went out have resulted in a small amount of media attention. First we were interviewed by the Bris’l Evening Post and they kindly put a nice article and a big photo in the paper. You can see it online:

But much more glam was this week’s experience of being on live Second Life TV. Treet TV’s Designing Worlds programme came to do an episode on our project and we filmed for 45 minutes or so, showing Elrik and Saffia, the presenters, around our model and talking about the ideas behind our work and the different historical layers represented in the model. We’d very much like to thank the programme for coming to see us – if you visit their web site you will see some of the stunning SL islands they have featured in the past. The programme seems to be very supportive of educational sims and their programme archive reinforces the creative approaches to topics such as First World War Poetry and the Slave Trade that can be taken in environments like Second Life or Open Sim. The url to see our show is

It’s a pretty good way of getting a feel for our Second Life space and the ideas behind it – so we’re extremely grateful to the Treet team for making such a great resource for people visiting this blog.
