I will talk about the VC perspective --
The Virtual Worlds Conference takes place Oct 10-11, 2007. I'm speaking at the event and wanted to provide you a 10% discount if you're interested in attending. The conference is dedicated to helping businesses harness the power of virtual worlds to engage with their customers, partners and employees. When you register there will be a box for a "Promo Code".
In the promo code box insert the text: "VIPATTENDEE" in all caps without the quotes to save the extra 10%.
