THON Concert in Second Life
Campus is pretty dead right now. A great number of THON participants are dispersed through the region this weekend to go canning. We’ll try to have some info about this weekend’s canning adventures early next week.
But THON participation is not limited to University Park students, nor even to Commonwealth Campus students.
The concert is being played by Rich Desoto. He’s an acoustic guitar player, and sounds pretty good– right now he’s playing a song called ‘I’m in Love with an Avatar Girl.’ The whole thing is pretty remarkable, especially considering the challenge of translating the excitement generated from THON into the digital world. We’re going to get some more info on how it works, and put it up next week; the Penn State World Campus in Second Life is officially launching on 1/28.
