3. Issues brought forward:     (1F7)

  • postmortem of the 25-Oct-2007 session - ConferenceCall_2007_10_25     (1F8)
    • what worked well?     (1F8A)
    • what didn't?     (1F8B)
      • everyone appears under their alias in Second Life ... what can we do to improve on the 'networking' when people actually don't know each other by their aliases     (1F8B1)
    • what are we going to do differently?     (1F8C)
      • need to clarify to people that they can get the full OKMDS series programming/content either way ('real life' or 'second life'), people just being on augmented conference call are not at all penalized     (1F8C1)
      • question: are sessions being archived (or links to the archive available) at the NASA/JPL Second Life site? Would be nice if we can implement that.     (1F8C2)
      • we need some sort of convention about naming people so as to help the networking     (1F8C3)
