Microsoft Virtual Earth


Stephen Lawler tours Microsoft Virtual Earth
Microsoft's Stephen Lawler gives a whirlwind tour of Virtual Earth, moving up, down and through its hyperreal cityscapes with dazzlingly fluidity, a remarkable feat that requires staggering amounts of data to bring into focus.
Google might still be ahead of the game, but even in beta, Virtual Earth shows incredible promise. Microsoft's visions for the product -- as a provider of real-time weather and traffic data, or a realistic backdrop for game developers and IM conversations, or virtual ad space -- all seem well within the limits of possibility.

Online presence is not only about the web. The interactivity and creativity of the new plaforms for virtual worlds can revolutionize the economy, education, and culture. The community of Second Life is a significant example of the new possibilities of virtual worlds.
In this online seminar held on January 16, 2007, hosted by the Berkman Center for Internet and Society of the Harvard Law School, we examine how through a three dimensional interface, and the possibility of manipulating and freely programming its objects, it relies on creativity as the main lever for user participation.
