The media is respectfully requested to be present.

Myers will host a first-of-its-kind campaign event in this non-traditional medium as another way to engage and inform voters through use of technology. From 8:00 -9:30 p.m., he will meet voters, talk about Toledo Public School issues and answer questions in Second Life. Media can either participate by participating in World or showing up in person at 3259 Astor (near intersection of Detroit and Anthony Wayne Trail), in Toledo.

IBM, Reuters, Harvard, many other businesses and presidential candidates are establishing presences in Second Life. Myers will become the first candidate in the area to open an office in Second Life and host an event. The virtual office will be open 24/7 so people can stop by to have a break or to learn more about the campaign whenever they are in World.
