IBM Virtual Block Party

Thanks to Peter Finn for pointing out this recent press release about the Greater IBM block party – an alumni event running tomorrow.

On Thursday, October 12, 2006, IBM is holding a first-of-its-kind Alumni block party in the virtual world of Second Life … The virtual block party is part of a larger IBM program called the Greater IBM, designed to maintain connections with IBM’s network of alumni around the world.

Hundreds of IBMers — across its services, global business consulting and IBM research labs — have been working together in Second Life for more than a year. Their focus is on applying synthetic world and game-like universe techniques to real business and social applications.

Exciting stuff. Keep an eye on the Greater IBM blog for more details too.
