Tech Womens Program: WOMEN AT WORK IN VIRTUAL WORLDS
Panelists will discuss their work in virtual worlds, commenting on how their perspective may differ from that of their male colleagues. We are excited about the range of work these women represent including:
K. Estelle Dodson, NASA CoLab, on virtual worlds in science collaboration and education. Her work at NASA Ames Research Center in virtual research institutions includes telepresence, hyperwalls and meetings in Second Life and Qwaq.
Orna Michael, Arts Devt. Director at Sims Studio at Electronic Arts, will discuss art and game development for the "Sims", which is a simulation game of family, personal, career and personal development.
Mary Duda, CEO/President of VirtuePlay Inc. which is releasing a game called "The Lunar Racing Championship" (LRC) in late Spring 2009.
Martha Russell, Associate Director of Media X at Stanford University.
Robin Harper, formerly of Linden Lab.
