Mark Wallace over at the excellent new 3pointd blog has a great real-virtual world blurring mapping “mashup” – he also has some interesting examples and glimpses of future applications – “A local clothing designer has a small shop in a neighborhood across town. You want to shop there, but you don’t have time. So you dial up a Community Walk map of your city and click on the shop’s SL link. You don an avatar that’s a scale model of your real-world self, and try on some clothes. A friend meets you there to tell you whether they make your bottom look fat. You order, you pay, and the clothes are delivered the next day.”Link.
