Gerri Sinclair is an entrepreneur, a new media pioneer in Canada and has walked the halls of government, Microsoft, where she was MSN Canada's general manager, and now, academia. Gerri is the Executive Director of the Masters of Digital Media Program at the Center for Digital Media at Great Northern Way Campus on the outskirts of Vancouver in British Columbia here in Canada. The 20 month long degree program is accredited by Vancouver's four major post secondary institutions: the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design, and the British Columbia Institute of Technology. And the Centre for Digital Media also exists in Second Life, on Erie. It's a place where education in metaverses like Second Life is dissected and developed, which is just what I talked to Gerri about. She joined me, via Skype, from Vancouver, British Columbia.
