Here's an animation of a photo of Max Ehrmann's reading the inspiring and somehow wise Desiderata poem from 1927, posted to Youtube in 2011:
Here's the far-reaching "Desiderata" poem itself ...
... this animation is fascinating re my blog post from yesterday and exploring eventually animating realistic avatars, and historically and for STEM research ...
Astatotilapia: The idea is for YOU eventually to be able to click through INTO the virtual Harbin in Google Street View that is 3D, interactive and film-realistic, and soak in the Harbin warm pool, but especially to be able to talk with Ishvara or Heartsong or other Harbin residents, for example, mostly through film-realistic, 3D, increasingly interactive and realistic scripted avatar bots, that eventually develop their own agency, but also potentially in person, such as in OpenSim or in Second Life and even, as virtual visitor, or tourist, do your own ethnographic field work, University of California Professors Emeriti Dean MacCannell and Nelson Graburn, I hope virtual worlds especially a mature and sophisticated Google Street View with OpenSim in all 7,097 languages will become an important new generative text/source for STEM research, Going back to the previous working title for my Harbin book, with its redundancy but clarity re the key concept of "virtual"
Could WUaS create avatars in a virtual Harbin / earth in Google Street View / OpenSim as "learning spaces" in which I might animate a Heartsong avatar from Harbin Hot Springs in some years in the future, and which would eventually develop forms of agency, independent of initial scripting, and based on Heartsong's far-reaching New Age thinking?
In what ways can I do this ethnographically, and re ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy?
I tried to find out how many languages the Desiderata is in by googling, but didn't find anything so far.
