Second Life Dublin

RTÉ News had a report on tv yesterday about a virtual Dublin built in the 3d multiplayer experience 'Second Life'.

The reporter created an avatar for himself and interviewed the owners of two businesses (a pub and a promotions agency) first in cyberspace (where they have built 3d representations of their premises) and then in the real world (meatspace).

It was interesting to see how they represented themselves online. The interviewer looked like fairly like himself, same haircut, suit and even had his microphone. The lady from the promotions agency wasn't wearing her glasses online, but the pub guy looked nothing like his avatar (no offence btw if you're reading this!).

There's a video link to the report here (about halfway down the page).
