What

Housed in two locations:

A 3D wiki in SL at http://slurl.com/secondlife/Supporte/161/143/36/

A Wiki doc located at http://blinddeafawareness.pbworks.com

 

Experience a game whose first contributor is Keller Johnston Thompson -- the great grandniece of Helen Keller herself. This game will change your view of reality while also increasing your understanding of how and why to include everyone in Virtual Worlds.  The game bridges over into art because its content is open to different interpretations and you are a vital part of the interaction. Players: Those interested in contributing to a potentially world changing movement. Game Play: Players will contribute to a shared document in the form of a wiki. Players can contribute in many different ways (see awards). Each day, players can earn awards based upon their contributions. Daily award winners will be announced on the wiki at approximately 8pm PST. End of Game Awards will be announced on the wiki at approximately 10am PST on Monday, 6/29/09. Rules: Contributions that are posted first will get credit. Contributions that are too similar will be removed at the end of each day. Any info posted to the wiki from 6/20/09 through 6/26/09 will automatically be placed into the 3D wiki in SL on the day of the conference. On the day of the conference, contributions can be made in world or on the wiki. The game ends on 6/30/09 at midnight PST, but the document will live on and continue to be open for additions and influence blindness awareness.
 
Why
Awareness. Lots of people do not understand why or how people with disabilities would want to use virtual worlds for employment, education, entertainment, and social engagement. Normal wikis in SL are not lasting (once you lose the build, you have lost the data). But Peter Miller from UK and Jeremy Braver are creating a wiki system that will allow people in Second Life to contribute lasting information, thus constantly adding to the pool of information resources. 
 
When
The game will run from June 20 on. At 6:00 - 6:30 pm PDT on June 27, Jeremy will conduct a presentation that shares what new insights have been gained.                                    
 
Length
The wiki will continue indefinitely. We are actively seeking a worthy entity that may carry this document into the future so as to not let this torch of awareness die.
 
Prizes
1st Place - $5,000L and Helen Keller Day sculptured trophy award

3rd Place - $1,000L and Helen Keller Day sculptured trophy award

 
Awards
