SLCC 2007 Chicago
SLCC (Second Life Community Convention) 2007 will be held in Chicago, at the Hilton and Towers at 8th and Michigan Avenue downtown, August 24, 25 and 26th. This is the 3rd year the convention has been held (NYC 2005 and San Francisco 2006) and the anticipated attendance will be 850 or so folks.
There will be a variety of planned activities, live musicians, DJs (radio style & turntablist/mixers), a leather and lace themed mascarade ball on Saturday night, as well as 4 different presentation tracks (Business, Education, Machinima and Social). Frankly, I think the biggest problems with this convention will be the inability to be in more than one place at a time and sheer exhaustion!
SLCC 2007 Official Blog – Plenty of information on how to get there, what to do in Chicago, how to get around, as well as much healthy discussion of the development of the event and announcements as they become available.
