In giving this talk on F 12/18/2020, my hope would be that, by the end of it, you would be able to enter a realistic virtual Harbin in the pool area there, and find an emerging Harbin warm pool and pool area, and as fully developed as this Onsen (below), ~ for visiting and even socializing. I would also like to be able to guide you there, as a realistic avatar, on the walk up to the Harbin pool area from the Harbin Gatehouse.
Onsen (please view in smartphone) ~

Aphilo Scott MacLeod The Making of Virtual Harbin Introduction
*Dear Nelson, and All,

Creating a realistic virtual earth for tourism and tourism studies with actual-virtual Harbin Hot Springs: A Case Study
In this TSWG talk I propose to facilitate tourists creating a realistic virtual earth for tourism and tourism studies, with a case study of actual-virtual Harbin Hot Springs - https://twitter.com/hashtag/RealisticVirtualHarbin?src=hashtag_click (and with Gradara, Italy, as a complementary example). My intent, thesis, and even argument, is to create an actual-virtual Harbin Hot Springs for tourists and tourism studies' researchers.
Please visit this Onsen (hot spring) - https://youtu.be/X6YBetANDUI - in Youtube, in your smartphone, interact with it, and move the device to explore. Click on the mask icon for binocular or stereo vision, which you could then use to slip it into Google Cardboard, and notice the fluidity of the immersive environment.
If, as Dean MacCannell suggests, tourism can be defined as visiting marked sites, often involving travel, or more specifically, following off site markers to onsite markers (p. 42, “The Tourist”), I want to facilitate tourists creating new virtual marked sites, and traveling to them, and visiting them in new ways, in a realistic virtual earth.
I also want to suggest that publishing academic papers from text-in-the-sidebar of Google Street View - this developing realistic virtual earth - will afford a new form of Tourism Studies.
'Authenticity' further, I suggest that virtual tourists, like you and I, visiting the Japanese Onsen above, as well as Virtual Harbin Hot Springs' Gatehouse, and regarding its virtual walking potential, is both very genuine (authentic), and makes possible authenticity from a myriad of new perspectives, regarding "a SEARCH for authenticity in response to alienation, a condition of modernity (per MacCannell and MacLeod).
Lastly, I want to suggest that Ethno-Wiki-Virtual-World-Graphy is a new social science / TSWG method which can facilitate this generation of touristic virtual sites by tourists. Ethno-Wiki-Virtual-World-Graphy is the interpretive practice of ethnography as group wiki-collaboration in a virtual world to create anthropological field sites. Think add-able Google Street View with Text In The Side Bar with group-buildable Second Life for Avatar Bots, but newly with artificial humans, such as Samsung Neons.
Scott G.K. MacLeod is an American academic and Professor of Sociocultural Anthropology at World University and School - worlduniversityandschool.org. He's taught "Network Society, Information Technology and the Global University" on Harvard University's virtual island, and on Penn State Isle in Second Life as a Penn State University instructor. He's taught both anthropology and sociology in real life at Chatham University, the University of Pittsburgh, and at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He received a Master's Degree in anthropology from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and a Diploma of Research from the University of Edinburgh. His research focuses on the information technology network society age, the world wide web cosmos, the virtual, and actual-virtual Harbin Hot Springs, seeking to facilitate the development of a realistic virtual earth for STEM research, and as classrooms (Think Google Street View with time slider +). He is World University and School's founder, president and CEO. WUaS forked successfully in 2017 into a second legal entity, the WUaS Press / Corp, planned with machine translation in all 7,117 living languages. Wiki World University and School is CC-4 MIT OCW-centric (in 4 languages) and CC Yale OYC-centric and seeks to develop major universities in all ~200 countries' main and official languages, as well as wiki schools in all 7,117 living languages too; WUaS plans to offer online CC OCW Bachelor, Ph.D., law, M.D. as well as I.B. high school degrees, partly in group video.

Here's the TSWG video from Friday, 12/18/20, and a new link, and it now works and easily viewable -
SGK MacLeod TSWG 12 18 2020 Creating a Realistic Virtual Earth Harbin for Tourism
I've added this now working URL here - https://scott-macleod.
Quite a remarkable system of linkages, regarding TCP / IP, transmission control protocol / internet protocols , that make it possible to create and view such videos, and create group video conversations, in brand new ways.
Am up to 830 blog posts in the 'virtual Harbin' blog label here - https://scott-macleod.
Now why can't we head into virtual Harbin right now from home ~ http://tinyurl.com/p62rpcg ~ https://twitter.com/HarbinBook ~ http://bit.ly/HarbinBook ~ and soak, and do / write / EWVWG ethnography at the e-same time? ... and simply hang out in the pool area socially, as well as head into the pools some times?
Thank you, Scott
