Ingredients for brainstorming in Second Life

Some practical tips from ThinkBalm for hosting a brainstorming session in an immersive environment – these are the ‘ingredients’ you’ll need:

    • A problem that can be moved toward resolution with brainstorming
    • A (virtual) room full of smart people
    • One hour minimum
    • A 3D mind mapping tool
    • Some mechanism for displaying participants’ real names with their avatars
    • Private 3D space in which to meet
    • Voice and text chat tools
    • An interactive polling tool (optional)

There is nothing unique in the brainstorming process itself, but there are some useful tips here about using Second Life (and similar environments) as the medium for your brainstorming meeting.
