Behavioural testing in SL

This has come in via the SL Researchers list – an interesting experimental pilot inside Second Life aimed at studying collective behaviour. It’s in the initial stages at the moment, but if you’re strapped for Linden cash you can take part in a very simple movement task. From the post

The Percepts and Concepts Laboratory in the Cognitive Science Program at Indiana University conducts experiments on collective behavior.We are having a public test of our group experiments infrastructure on Thursday July 12 from 12:30pm to 2:30pm (Second Life time) on Limestone Quarry island.

Your task is to walk over as many red squares in 5 minutes as you can. Each square is worth 1L$.

Please note – this is not the actual experiment run, no collected data will be used for research, publications or anything. We’re just going to be testing our scripts! Actual collective behavior experiments are planned to take place at a later date.
