  1. Thanks for the link Fiona, it was really interesting to hear Tom speaking. He talked about his research in to SL and also mentioned a forthcoming Handbook he has been co-authoring about doing effective research in SL. Should be published next June or July.

  2. Oh great tip regards the “handbook for effective research in SL” – will keep an eye for that – or of course you can post a link here on the Hub if you see it first!

    Am glad it was an interesting talk – I was very disappointed to have a conflicting event I couldn’t change.
