Blogging from the virtual world

3pointD’s Mark Wallace just posted to his site from the virtual world – “Well, here we are. As I blogged earlier, you can now point Second Life’s in-world Mozilla browser at virtually any Web page you like. So I’m blogging this from within SL as an experiment. The browser is very kludgy, to be sure. Resize the window or click outside it and things seem to break down. Still, there’s great promise here. Big fun coming.”Link. So, expect a lot of interesting real/virtual world interactions to start happening (more)…

I’ll dust off the DIY MAKE VR suit and head in shortly.

    I’ve never played Second Life but I’m guessing that it either allows you to press Alt-Tab to go to other Windows applications or if it’s not fullscreen you can just click on another application. If that is the case then why would you want to use a feature-limited browser when you can just tab over to Firefox? If this is being done just for the challenge then that’s cool but other than that, what’s the point?

    what folks are going to do is what will be really interesting, mapping a browser on a 3d surface, getting in (and out) live data, etc…

    Ok, that makes more sense. This article was about blogging from the browser which seemed kind of pointless but now I’m envisioning wallpaper that consists of RSS feeds… coolness.
