Talk about the Second Life Q2 economy

SLCC09 starts today

Today marks the 5th Second Life Community Convention and this year it will take place in San Francisco, CA.  The Second Life Community Convention will be hosted by Second Life residents for a real life gathering. I would love to go but its too far away and plus the costs ontop. I believe there will be SLCC regions open for residents to watch the live coverage of the convention.
