This video has me thinking about Second Life and Google Earth. Why is it not possible to create a Second Life style representation of Google Earth? Why can’t buildings be framed out in 3D? Why can’t individuals incorporate their floor plans into those frames? Why can’t people create avatars to populate this environment? Why can’t the schism between First Life and Second Life be crossed? Why can’t Facebook’s knowledge and Linkedin’s knowledge and Businesses and Governments translate into an enhanced virtual world? Why can’t every object in a virtual world be a hyperlink?
