Wir werden bei der Veranstaltung mit Internova zusammenarbeiten. Vorhin hat Michael auf der Facebook Informationen für internationale Autoren veröffentlicht. Für den 16. und 17. März planen wir außerdem ein Internova Treffen.
we've talked about events in Second Life of relevance for the
international sf community before. I'm just assisting my fellow Thorsten
Küper aka Kueperpunk Korhonen
at organizing two Second Life events that I'm sure will interest you.
On March 8th (the eve of the science fiction convention in Dortmund) the
BB E-Book Event, a virtual book fair for e-books and audio books, will
be opened with an international sf reading. The exhibition will be open
for several weeks and offer a great opportunity for you to present your
e-book and audio book productions. International publishers in various
languages are welcome. If you want to take part, please contact me
or Kueperpunk Korhonen. Below Thorsten's announcement that I've
translated into English for you. Feel free to spread the news. Yours Michael
Dear writers, e-publishers and readers,
on Friday, March 8. 2013 we plan to open our BB E-Book Event. The idea
is to present a large book market where you writers can present your
digital productions at your own exhibition stands The books there
will be links to your e-books. Audio formats, of course, are also
welcome. Thus you audio book and audio drama producers out there - feel
invited! The exhition stands will be there for several weeks. During
this time we plan several readings and panel discussions/lectures
regarding digital book production. It will be a great opportunity
for you to get into contact with other producers. Well-known writers of
various genres will be present who like you have published e-books and
are interested in an information exchange. We will, by the way,
invite a number of international writers, The opening will probably be
at 8:00 pm Central European Time. For later the night we plan an
international reading with science fiction writers from three
continents. The next day you will have the chance to follow several live
panels that will be audio-streamed into Second Life from the science
fiction convention in Dortmund. Some of you have already read at our
events and you know Second Life a little. We'll help you to prepare the
exhibition stands and, if required, build them for you. We hope a lot of you will take part!
on March 16. and 17., one week after the convention in Dortmund, while
the BB E-Book Event is still running, we plan an international science
fiction meeting in Second Life, with the focus on how to intensify the
collaboration of international sf writers especially from outside of the
English-speaking countries. There are ideas that I discussed with my
Romanian sf fellows to found a new international sf association, among
others with the goal of independently publishing international sf in
several languages. We want to present a concept during the meeting, It
would also be a chance for you to talk and present your own ideas.
Due to the traveling costs and other problems it would be very
difficult to organize such a meeting in reallife. Second Life offers a
way to meet live with no costs and just a little technical effort.
Considering that almost all our collaborations so far were handled via
the Internet, this is an opportunity to go a step further (at least
until we're all rich enough to meet personally some day ;-)
eagerly await your responses. Please let me know if you would like to
attend such a meeting. All you need is a fairly recent computer with a
good graphic card (1,7 Hz with 512 MB and a Gforce or Radeon two
generations back is already usuable for the basics), a headset and a
highspeed Internet connection. We will help you with the first steps.
Thorsten has written a tutorial for Second Life beginners who want to
take part in cultural events. Later this day I will translate it into
English and post it here in the fie section as a pdf document. Please
have a look, read the document and if you're interested contact
Kuperpunk Korhonen and me or post a reply here.
