Busy Political Week in SL

It has been busy politically in SL this week, and it is only Tuesday. So far I've attended two very different events. Yesterday I attended an interview with Arianna Huffington in SL... almost. And today I attended a G8 protest at Reuters Island.

Earlier in the week, on Monday, I attended a presentation that was really Jimbo interviewing Arianna Huffington in SL. Except she was only in SL via audio, the microphone on her was either the wrong type or improperly attached so I couldn't hear very much of her answers.

I ranted about Yearly Kos and SL in an earlier post but these pics sort of illustrate what I'm talking about. The "sit and listen" format that so many folks design for events in SL is BORING! If you look at these pics of the two events... the G8 protest and the Arianna interview... which one do you think looks more interesting?
