BlogHers go Racing in Second Life!

Flickrcomphotos23396182n00268080497 While thousands of women Bloggers assembled in San Francisco for the BlogHer '08 Convention this weekend, Second Life BlogHers had plenty of chances to hang out inworld at the BlogHer conference in Second Life! Hundreds of attendees enjoyed socializing at Callie Cline's Beach Resort (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Ride/134/167/26) (which sponsored several social events with dancing and music), and the BlogHer Vendor Area (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Ride/216/186/30) (which offered products and services in between seminars and panel discussions), but the Motorability Fairgrounds Speedway was a huge hit (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Ride/234/251/36) thanks to the  sponsored racing events held on Saturday.

Flickrcomphotos23396182n00268162280 Facilitated by Suku Ming and Toby Rainbow, BlogHers had plenty of fun learning how to drive their BlogHer08 virtual race cars around the Fairgrounds Speedway and Dirtfield Raceway racetracks found on United Spinal's Motorability Island. Some of the participants got the hang of going around and around the track, though others found it easier to crash their digital rides. Fortunately, in Second Life, everybody walks away from the crash, and race cars can be easily replaced.

When the racing was over, so many enthusiastic women shared their exhilaration at being able to race these BlogHer08 virtual cars on the exceptional SLASCAR tracks! We can't wait to do it again next year!

Pontiac Empowers United Spinal Association with Motorability Car Culture Island in Second Life

Motorability_overview Pontiac's Motorati Island is getting a second life by making a very generous donation of the very successful seven-region car culture island in Second Life to United Spinal Association. The newly named Motorabilty Island aims to continue catering to the car culture community in Second Life with a twist, by providing an opportunity to empower the 10,000 United Spinal Association members to join Second Life and experience car culture events and activities in this very popular virtual world.

New and experienced Second Life residents will enjoy car culture related virtual events, activities, community building, educational seminars and pure racing fun on the many original venues and race tracks re-opening in early February. Event proceeds, sales of goods, and services from commercial enterprise and sponsorships will contribute to raise awareness and provide funding to support United Spinal Association programs in the virtual and real world. Visit us in Second Life here SLURL to location.

Major sponsor and coordinating efforts by the car culture community on United Spinal's Motorability Island is Jody DeVere (aka Patty Streeter in Second Life) AskPatty's very own president and member of the board of directors for United Spinal Association. DeVere's son Joseph was involved in a tragic car accident in 2005 which resulted in paraplegia. This event created a big passion in her to help provide non-traditional recreational and quality of life programs for disabled Americans.

Motorability_logo_unitedspinal "I am so grateful for the opportunity to have been a participant in Pontiac's Motorati Island car culture community development in Second Life during 2007, what an awesome roller coaster learning curve experience.  I want to thank Pontiac, Campfire, Leo Burnett and Electric Sheep Company for their tremendous support of all my activities related to United Spinal and AskPatty.com in Second Life ," stated DeVere. "On behalf of United Spinal Association's board of directors and its 10,000 members we are truly grateful to Pontiac and General Motors for the generosity of this wonderful gift of virtual car culture recreation and will continue to build on the foundation you so generously give for use by future Second Life residents to enjoy."
