Panelists include Fred Ritchin, NYU professor and a contributing editor of Aperture; Michael Van Horn, curator of the Joseph Monsen Collection in Seattle, who has organized shows about and within Second Life; and Richard Minsky, founder of SLART magazine, a critical review and journal of Second Life art.
