University of Southern California have been exploring how virtual worlds can build new forms of community both on- and offline, and how the new networks open up new possibilities for promoting the public good. Their challenge to the SL community to come up with projects that address these issues has now selected 3 finalists, who Draxtor reviews in this short machinima.

An employer’s take on labour standards in SL/RL http://www.slunionisland.org/2008/08/an-employers-take-on-labour-standards-in-slrl/ http://www.slunionisland.org/2008/08/an-employers-take-on-labour-standards-in-slrl/#comments Thu, 07 Aug 2008 08:57:11 +0000 Johninnit Ni http://www.slunionisland.org/2008/08/an-employers-take-on-labour-standards-in-slrl/

Here’s an SL PR video that Draxtor Despres made for the multi-national employment agency Manpower, about business use of virtual worlds (thanks to Draxtor for sharing with us). Manpower are a signatory company to the UN Global Compact, a voluntary framework for businesses to measure themselves against a set of minimum standards of decent corporate behaviour internationally, and the video “The Power of Collaboration” discusses issues around corporate social responsibility in the real world and in SL, from Manpower’s perspective.
