NYE 2012 – Overnight for Dreaming Avatars




From Monday Dec. 31 at 2:00pm Second Life Time 
to Tuesday Jan. 1, 2013 6 am SLT
(SLT = Pacific Time Zone)

In Parallel: Dreaming into Alternate Universes 

with Norman Lowrey aka North Zipper

A Virtual Celebration of the New Year Across 9 Time Zones.

Join us for the closing ceremony of Ione’s 17th Annual Dream Festival 
in an overnight celebration of the New Year in Second Life.

You are invited to log on at any time, receive a Dreaming/Sleeping Cap animation
for your Avatar, sound Dreaming into Alternate Universes instruments, and dream
together with us from Central European Time (CET) to Pacific Time.

We recommend that you log on early and simply leave your Avatar in its Dreaming
state if you have to actually be at a live party or engage in real life sleep!

We’ll be meeting at the Odyssey Arts site, location of their recent End of the World
event: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Odyssey/145/201/352

You can also contact North Zipper (aka Norman Lowrey) for teleportation to the
site. If you have any questions contact Norman Lowrey at nlowrey@drew.edu.
