     First Doctor Who: Podshock Virtual Meet-Up A Huge Success

    The first ever virtual meet-up for the Gallifreyan Embassy / Doctor Who: Podshock was a huge success. Doctor Who fans from all over the world were able to come together in one place, albeit a virtual one to celebrate the 43rd anniversary of their favourite Time Lord. Using the Second Life virtual world environment, we all materialized in The Land of Doctor Who throughout day on the 23rd of November, the anniversary of the series.

    In attendance from Doctor Who: Podshock were James, Colin, Russel, and myself, Louis were joined with many other regular contributors and listeners.

    Many thanks to all those that attended, and those that attempted but could not (either for reasons of the Second Life client software not running on their system, or due to conflicts with the Thanksgiving holiday in the States). Extended thanks to Merlin (Mike McCarley) and Dawg for their help with the event, and special thanks to Bazzerbill Eccleston (Second Life names) for allowing us to host the event on his land.

    We will be organizing more virtual meet-ups soon. Next time not coinciding with a major holiday we hope. Look forward to details in upcoming podcasts and this site.

    It was great seeing the steady numbers of fans coming and talking throughout the day. Many podcasters and even some folks that work for the BBC came by to chat. Sorry to all that my time was eaten up by Real Life so I was there but not there.

    Did anyone else take screen captures that can be posted somewhere? I'd love to see what it looked like.
