We’ve fixed the awards party date: Saturday December 8 2007 @ 21.30GMT. For your local times please click through. We’re currently sorting out the hosting issues – the event will be taking place on the Island of jokaydia in Second Life, and you can check out the finalists in our Virtual World category for some tips and advice on getting started in SL. We will be using audio in Second Life and also running an off world audio stream for those of you who can’t be doing with SL for whatever reason – either way, you’ll be wanting to dig out your headsets. More info to follow shortly.
Twitter is kindly hosting a backchannel so please do go and friend Eddie if you like or want to check out some micro-blogging action (Jaiku is actually much better designed for this purpose – unfortunately it’s still closed to new sign ups following the Google buy out).
I haven’t had replies from all of the finalists yet – so if you are a finalist, please do get in touch via the awards email if you haven’t done so yet. We need to contact you all about SL support etc. If you recognise a finalist who hasn’t yet submitted information about themselves, please do help us out and ask them to get in touch!
Finally – the dress code Default avatars are more than welcome – we’re not recreating Snow Crash here. However – dressing up is also a lot of fun and very much encouraged – please do feel free to put on your best frock or flying spaghetti monster suit.
