A Conversation with George Lakoff and the Rockridge Institute. Note: This page posted for the convenience of the participants.
Feb 19 - 5 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. SLT
Part 1 is a mash up of a Rockridge Institute conference call, and in world discussion, on the cognitive dimension of politics and policy, focused on healing the rifts in the health care debate, and changing its direction for the better. We intend to reframe the issue to focus on who really makes the decisions about who gets what access to health services, rather than the mechanics of authorization.
Part 2 is an inworld discussion of the potential of virtual reality as a lever for promoting progressive content in SL. For this event, space is limited. Part 2 is for invited guests.
