Postcards from a Second Life Healthcare Tourist

Knoh Oh with MonitorAs readers of my old blog know, I’ve been traveling to Second Life and recording various health care related sites.  I’m called Knoh Oh in-world and have been sending postcards to Snapzilla anyone can view them.  I’m currently up to 64 sites.

I’m finding that things change so fast in Second Life, many places I visited have changed quite a bit…or even moved. I guess they still are a good “chronicle” as one av put it.

I have more places I know I need to go, and new ones seem to be coming up all the time. However, I may just concentrate on particular aspects of sites, ones that are good examples of larger ideas. This will make them less subject to change, and allow others to reflect upon the idea, rather than the specific build.

Another aspect that I haven’t really touched on is many of the non-build aspects of health care in Second Life. I really haven’t documented all the groups that are available…the ones that are not associated with a particular location.

I’m also still looking for a good way to bring the Snapzilla content into WordPress…
