Since I seem to have insomnia, I thought I would take this moment to link to a super article about Second Life in the Humanities classroom that recently appeared in the New York Times.  I think what’s useful is seeing what actual practices people do in the classroom to make use of the technology.

At the conference I just returned from (ASECS) we discussed the digital humanities a lot; in particular we talked about various ways to access materials, ways to involve students in digital editing, and I discovered that Island 18 on Second Life has now been purchased by an Austrialian University.
