After a short summer break, we are taking up our weekly interviews again.
I am happy to introduce John Lester, known as Pathfinder in virtual worlds. John works as a Software Designer, Product Manager, and Community Developer inMontreal, Québec, Canada. His background is in neuroscience research, and he has developed a deep interest in how to enhance education and collaboration through the development of successful online communities. From 2005-2010 John worked at Linden Lab where he led the development of the education and healthcare markets for the Second Life platform. He also worked at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, creating online medical education systems and patient support communities. His special interests are Community Development, Semantic Technologies, Unstructured Data Analytics, Online Communities, Immersive and Collaborative Learning, Artificial Life, Augmented Reality and Multiuser 3D Virtual Worlds.
This is the first part of a fascinating conversation with John, which will be continued in November.
Enjoy the interview!
