On the Second Life front, these 2 newspieces appeared today:
- Doing physics in Second Life: What is there for physicists in this virtual world?
- Second thoughts: Doing physics in Second Life.
I must confess that i’ve tought about this (to do physics in Second Life) many times. In fact, my mom gave me this idea way back in
30 May 2007 10:17:34 (BST). Unfortunately, to the best of my knowledge, Second Life’s support of GNU/Linux client’s is only in alpha stage. (If anyone has more info on this, i’d appreciate it. 😉 )
But, maybe it’s time that i try their MacOS client… 😎
Now, changing gears…
Dois artigos interessantes sobre a situação da educação brasileira:
- “O calcanhar-de-aquiles da educação brasileira”; artigo de João Grandino Rodas
- “País ameaçado”; artigo de Cristovam Buarque
And, to sum up, National Geographic has a video about the carnival in Brazil: Video: Rio Carnival Honors Japanese.
Ainda falando sobre educação, esse artigo de hoje também é bastante interessante: Alexandria – Revista de Educação em Ciência e Tecnologia.
