Google Earth in Second Life: GeoGlobe

This is an interesting twist. Instead of making Google Earth into Second Life, why not make a virtual version of Google Earth inside of Second Life? Second Life is an alternative 3D universe (or Metaverse) which lets you have an alternate version of yourself and explore a different 3D world. Josh Knauer has developed a virtual version of a Google Earth like interface which he calls GeoGlobe. He announced GeoGlobe on his blog here. You need to have Second Life installed, and then follow this special link to teleport yourself into Second Life to let you view content such as Google Earth's KML placemarks or GeoRSS.

You can see a video which gives a limited example of the application in action here:

It would be neat if someone at Google considered doing Virtual Google Earth for Second Life as a real application. The neat part would be shrinking down your Avatar and putting it on top of the GE terrain and walking around. Then, you could zoom into a 3D house and log onto someone's computer and use Google Earth inside the Virtual Google Earth inside Second Life.... Ok, this is getting crazy. :-) Picked up on GeoGlobe via OgleEarth.
