Seven Deadly Sins, The Beginning


I’ve been spending a lot of time in Second Life lately, as one of several people working to prepare Wolverine Island to open to the public. There are some wonderful things going on. Our opening event was Andrew Maynard, Director of the UM Risk Science Center, speaking on the Seven Deadly Sins of a Techno-Complacent Society. Continuing our Seven Deadly Sins theme, upcoming speakers include JJ Jacobson, Culinary Curator at the Clements Library, in a Q&A on the Fin de Siècle Culinary Excess exhibit (gluttony); AJung Moon on robotic ethics; Michelle Aebersold and Dana Tschannen; with more speakers and information to follow. Here is a video of Andrew’s talk, followed by slides showing images of the new Wolverine Island and a portion of the Seven Deadly Sins Exhibits.
