Eloise Pasteur

I am a big fan of Eloise Pasteur.  She is a major presence on the Second Life Educators List (SLED) and is the CEO of her own Educational Designs company in Second Life. When I first decided to invent a mediatron for the Tibetan language, I posted a question about it on SLED and Eloise gave me the code I needed. I have a link to her blog over there on the right. Here is a quote from one of her postings that I completely agree with:

First we have a question about approaches to the recession from Hightouch: If you’re an organisation that says people are your most important resource, why are you dismissing people before you consider closing buildings and working remotely with your people? It’s a good question – tiny, tiny organisations like Eloise Pasteur Educational Designs manage to work in a virtual environment. Great big ones like Department for Homeland Security and IBM manage it too. There are free to use tools such as Skype, Gizmo, Yuuguu etc. that let you work smoothly with distant people, and that cost nothing save some bandwidth and installation time. If you really believe your people are the most important resource, doesn’t finding a new way to work with them make sense?

I feel sorry for those who have been thrown out of work so their old companies can heat their big inefficient buildings.  Why can’t employers see the obvious? Buildings do not make money: people at work make money. The day is coming when people will wake up to the economic and human advantages of Virtual Worlds.
