My Logic is Cold in Idaho

Most newcomers probably don’t know about the grand days when a lot of colleges were experimenting with Second Life as a teaching tool for various subjects (mostly computer oriented), and even as the first steps in a virtual form of distributed education.  After all, if you could get the classroom out to the students instead of the students coming to the classroom, so to speak, the options for teaching your subject could grow exponentially.1

Most of the colleges have left, sadly, except for perhaps an occasional computer-science class taught by a rebel, unreconstructed professor or two.  A few remain, though, such as the University of Western Australia, and, here in the United States, the University of Idaho.  Idaho’s campus actually covers five regions, and was designed with some care for looks in many areas.  Where I am here is near the center point of the complex, and I’m wearing a goodie that just came out from neve, the new label offered by coldlogic.  It’s perhaps not the perfect top to wear as the days go cold — which they’re doing with a vengeance here in RL Alabama right now —

— especially with this slit up the back.  But that’s the charm of the beast!  And if you need, you can throw on a cloak or jacket to prevent kidney chill and other such problems.  Jo teams it here with a pair of system jeans (still very useful, especially if they’re on the underpants layer!), Bax Coen’s lovely Prestige boots, and a very simple hair and makeup palette.  My jewelry in toto consists of a splashy ring and a pair of doubled diamond studs.

1  Imagine what a virtual-world meeting ground could do for programs such as The Open University in Britain or Australia???  Instead of streaming lectures or DVDs, you could have a class with students present, from around the world, with the opportunity to ask questions and get answers live, for the benefit of the entire class!
