Dear Jim,
we have done a case study on Second Life in our book "Cyberscience 
2.0" that has been published just this month. You may be interested 
in our (not so enthusiastic) conclusions about the prospects of 
Second Life with regard to, among others, academic conferencing.

You may order the book with Amazon:

Best regards,
