The National Health Service,
the largest health care provider in the world, held an International Clinic Summit
earlier this week with the remit of making sure the future of the NHS is clinically led and can meet the demands of delivering health care over the next decade. This summit was held in parallel in real life and Second Life
and you can parts of the presentations
via the summit's website.
This isn't the first such meeting that has spilled across real life and Second Life
of course, famously Eduserv was here
in May and reported in the mainstream UK media, and the iCommons summit in June
ran in parallel too. However, Second Life
is becoming a common method for virtual attendance at meetings, despite the doomsayers and naysayers, and becoming widely accepted at the highest levels, at least in the UK.
