I'm hosting a workshop in SecondLife this coming February with PublicDecisions as part of a week long conference they're producing on using virtual worlds for stakeholder engagement.

My workshop is called "How to Host World Cafes in Second Life" and I'll post the information here and in the Events calendar for anyone who'd like to participate.

If you are already experienced in Second Life and would like to be part of the workshop by serving as a Table Host (a necessary part of a Second Life World Cafe), let me know: amy at theworldcafe dot com

Hello my friends!

I want to welcome all the new people who've joined this group lately, and invite you to share your specific interests and wishes for this group in the Introductions thread here.

There is a lot happening in this sphere of online World Cafes lately, and I'd love your thinking and participation...

Welcome, Gloria!

It would be great when new people join if they could share a bit about their experience and/or interest in online World Cafes - I'd love to know more about who's here ...

Hi Alane,

Yes, it's not really a social networking site as much as a Community of practice for World Cafe and friends. You fit right in! :-) I guess you didn't get my notes to you, asking some questions in response to the group you proposed... If you look in your message box you should be able to see them. Warmly, Amy

Ok I just figured out what is going on in the world cafe! LOL. Ok ,this is so very different that most other social networking sites. I started what I thought was a group that got rejected. So I think I'm up to speed on the format and style now...... smile : )

You may want to visit Amy's post Extending Meaningful Conversation: Virtual World Cafes to see two different online cafe approaches. I brought to the front of the conversations.

Hi all - another chance for an online World Cafe. This one using the new MaestroConference technology, which works through the phone lines.

Here are the details:

Join us for the 2nd European Salon Online World Cafe
Saturday, October 17th

12 - 1:30pm PST
3-4:30pm EST
20:00 - 21:30 GMT
21:00-22.30 CET

The European Salon will be happening face-to-face near Vienna, and we'd like you to be part of it by joining us in real time online.

We'll be using the medium we pioneered at the MaestroMonth sessions this month... Easily the most intuitive online World Cafe you will have experienced to date, we will be using the phone to connect.

We hope you will be there with us!

Last call for those who'd like to join us in the online World Cafe on Monday at 20:00 Central European time - to start the ball rolling for the European Salon in Vienna next month. To find what time the online Cafe is in your own time zone, click here.

We who are hosting the Salon are planning to support active online involvement throughout the Salon, so you don't have to be in Vienna to participate!

If you're interested in how to bring the World Cafe spirit to the online medium, come help us shape what's possible!

This online World Cafe will be hosted by Ulrich Soeder and held on Skype. If you want to be part of it, please send me your Skype name as soon as possible.

I attach a "information letter" we've devised with more on this Online Cafe, if you're interested.
