The problem is precisely that we must avoid trying to bring order too quickly to these muddled scripts.

Re: [Air-L] Call for Chapters: Alternate Reality Games and the Cusp of Digital Gameplay
I enjoyed your excellent talk -
Looking forward to staying in touch about what you're teaching and researching as well as potentially about ethno-wiki-virtual-world-
Do you know please of any film to interactive 3D virtual world conversion software on the horizon, especially for Google Streetview/Maps/Earth with Time Slider (and group build-able like OpenSim/SL) by any chance per -
- for example?
And, just as a heads' up, I'm seeking to develop a realistic virtual earth for STEM research and as a classroom (and in all 7,099 living languages), and at the atomic, cellular and street view levels, where we could, for example, add videos of virtual world gaming, which would also then become interactive (possibly Google-centric). It would be great to stay in touch about this as well.
