Attending SL Pro! Conference today and trying out the SL Viewer2

I'm ill at home today, but managed to attend the SL Pro! conference at the New Media Consortium sims in Second Life. Tom Hale (T. Linden) gave the keynote. There area was packed and some people experienced SL voice (Vivox)issues.

I took the opportunity to download the new SL Viewer2 Beta.... and tried to figure it out on the fly. It's great... though I would advise watching Torley's videos to work through the new features and UI changes.
SL Beta Viewer:
Download: http://secondlife.com/beta-viewer/download.php?
My favourite new feature is the 'shared media object' whereby you can drag a URL for a collaborative site onto a prim for which you have permissions.... I'll try out dragging on video for tomorrow's class for the MH214 class.

Here we are at SL Pro! trying out the shared media object that has the URL from a collaborative site, Corillo.com dragged onto the object: http://colorillo.com/awhv?3v5aqn
