Hi Dr. Kapp,
This is a very cool idea, I have never heard of a virtual book tour. Tony O'Driscoll I remember from Second Life class. Interesting reading!

Dr Kapp,

Very interesting site with many links to many different perspectives of basically what i can describe as many differnt aspects and scenarios of IT.

Looking at mobile minds and the Wii + Second Life in more of a real life simulator for instance medical field e.t.c. I am not to convinced if we are there yet. I know that the Wii is very popular but i can remember being at home over the Christmas period when the actual Christmas tree lights were reacting to the Wii console. If this is the case is it right to try and combine both to more real life situational settings?

A blog books tour not only screams "Web 2.0" it also saves one time and shoe leather. This was a great idea. Thanks.

Although I haven't read the book yet, reading these reviews gave me a better insight to what the book is all about. Plus, I want to read the book even more after reading the great things everyone is saying about it! I espcially enjoyed "Cammy Beans" report on the book!
