ROMsys got involved with "Second Life" (SL) in late 2006, as part of a project with a cooperative called "Magic Curtain", who were interested in next generation online role-playing games. There were a number of other reasons initially, or which developed over time.
The main reason was to see if SL could be used as a business support tool. Secondary included seeing if SL could help in the development of interactive software agents, to provide online support. However, there was never a compelling case for ROMsys to establish a presence in SL.
Even though the initial reasons for using SL were not fruitful it became clear that it provided a social media in which presentations could be made. These included a wide range of technical subjects, in both 'hard' and 'soft' science, a number of which were highly relevant to areas ROMsys is interested in.
