Education in virtual/real worlds

my second life and the first one

10 de Outubro de 2008

Estava na Universidade do Minho, no Encontro Web 2.0. quando cerca das 18h a notícia chegou por telemóvel – a minha querida amiga Maggie tinha falecido. Um ano após, não consigo deixar de fazer um post completamente pessoal para expressar o quanto ainda dói e as saudades que a Maggie continua a deixar.

Em Portucalis, no espaço dedicado à Maggie – Philbin’s Memory Lane – hoje ouve-se Somewhere Over the Rainbow.

To you Maggie, wherever you are…………

At the Pavilion

It was 15h in Portugal, when people are working in RL, which means people in Pacific Time were waking up (I suppose, I’m not sure). I’m still wondering how many people could have appeared at my presentation at The Pavilion! More than 30 persons! I think we can take this observation as a measure of the Education Faire success and the congratulations go directly to Pathfinder Linden, who had the idea for the Faire.

The session was very participated. I felt I let some people thinking about the ideas presented… (that is good! 🙂 )

At the end, some questions were made both in written chat both in voice. I’ve answered them in voice. But I felt that I’ve missed some written chat in the meanwhile. Always the problem with voice and chat at the same time, knowing there’s people who don’t ear the conversation.

New contacts were made. New persons are now colleagues to discuss common research concerns. It was very good.

A special thanks to friends and colleagues who could appeared (from Portugal and from Brazil).

Playing Margarita – the blog, the person

Hoje faleceu uma grande amiga minha.
Lavada em lágrimas não vejo as letras.
Dói, dói muito.
que saudade!
que dor.

Miga, estaremos sempre juntas, tal como naquele evento em que foste a minha voz.
