Research and Ethics
Many many apologies to those who turned up yesterday at the Social Sim Research Lab in Second Life to take part in the virtual world research ethics discussion. I was hampered by no internet (in the centre of London?!) and later log on issues. The event will be rescheduled as soon as possible.
In the meantime, here’s the blurb to whet your appetites again:
Ethics and Internet Research
Time and place: 12.30 pm UK time, Monday June 18th in Second Life
For our June meeting, Aleks Krotoski will lead a discussion on the theme of ‘Ethics in Online/Social World research’. We are meeting at Aleks’ place in Second Life (social simulation research lab – there are chairs!). Please dust off your SL avatar, and put that date in your diary. You can get there directly (if you’ve got an SL account) here.
We thought that this paper might be a good place to begin the discussion:
