Media Blitz: UWA on Drax Files World Makers, Channel 9 Australia, and WA Today
Very pleased to see a steady stream of positive news reports on various media (both traditional RL & SL media) on the UWA presence in Second Life together with our partners from all over the world. Last night, UWA founder and lead Jay Jay Jegathesan (Jayjay Zifanwe) featured on the highly acclaimed 'Drax Files' World Makers series.
This followed on the heels of a report and video on the West Australian news portal WA TODAY, which focused on The Freedom Project, arguably the single most important event run by UWA in virtual worlds.
This episode of World Makers is particularly pleasing as so many brilliant filmmakers from around the world like Iono Allen (France), Vilvi Rae (Finland), Pepa Cometa (France), Tutsy Navarathna (India), Karima Hoisan (Costa Rica), Rysan Fall (USA), Chic Aeon (USA) and Natascha Randt (Germany), among others are part of it, some whom I are seen for the first time 'in real life.
Brilliant wordsmith, Inara Pey described the episode and other related events on the Modem World news site:
News on this was further carried pon the official Second Life page:
