David’s Thoughts

1) Basically during the workshop, people were introduced to the program Second Life to give them a diffferent point of view of the design of the library pakr. First they had to become acaquainted with the movement of avatars in Second Life. These people were given the opportunity to explore Boston Island which was a digital replica of the area of the library park. Then there were discussions about what should be in the park. Based on their choice on the values at were introduced from the start, each group discussed what they would like to see. After much debating about the design, the people were then given the chance to explore the island once again but they now had the ability to place flags that were representations of their opinions on the design they discussed. After this, the workshop was over.
2) I believe that part when people were given the opportunity to go around the island and place flags that represented their opinion was the most beneficial. It gave the Hub2 staff a consensus of what people relaly wanted. The power of democracy over what people liked and what they didnt liked. I believe it helped the people know what they really want and give a better understanding of what will work and what wouldnt.
