2010-09-21 We Are The Network: The “I Have Proof!” Game
The “I Have Proof!” Game
This Tuesday, Sept 21 at the Epoch Institute in Second Life™
This Week’s Topic
The “I Have Proof!” Game
Let’s find out if it’s possible to “prove anything on the net!” This week we’ll play a serious game called “I Have Proof!” Here’s how the game works. We’ll all pick a “for” or “against” position, and then pick a topic. We’ll set a timer for five minutes, and try to find coherent persuasive proof on the Internet for our chosen position. Then we’ll compare proof and arguments to see what we have in hand. I suspect we can find reasonably persuasive proof in both directions on any topic we can think up – let’s see if it’s true, and what we learn in the process!
Join us Tuesday at 12PM noon U.S. Pacific / 3pm U.S. Eastern time for an interactive discussion, and thanks for being part of “We Are The Network”!

Please Note – Mixed Text and Voice Session:
We Are The Network is an open, mixed voice / text discussion session. Please feel free to participate in voice or in text, to your preference. The facilitator and some participants will be using voice, so you may wish to enable voice in your viewer so that you can hear the voice portions of the session.
To enable voice, choose Preferences from the Edit menu, click the “Voice Chat” tab along the left of the form, and then make sure that “Enable voice chat” is checked. Again, speaking is not required for this session, however if you do not enable voice, and use speakers or headphones, you will not be able to hear part of the discussion.
Thanks for attending!
