Open Council, Second Life - under consideration -

Part of distribution strategy could potentially include a foray into cyberspace and virtual reality. The Open Council, Second Life policy would be about developing our institution in the online environment provided by Second Life so as to maximize distribution potential and test our policies in ways that are not possible or desirable in Newcastle. Setting up an Open Council institution in the online environment could be the solution to the ongoing internal dilemma regarding weather or not to hold real events derived from Open Council Policy. Events such as Manhole Dancing, Community Drifting, Following, and Corner Busking should all be tested virtually.
