Google Earth as a Virtual World

Michael Eisenberg, blogged yesterday

"Heard an interesting rumour today from an academic who heard through the PhD grapevine...Google is working on turning Google Earth into a virtual world a la SecondLife (full disclosure: Benchmark investment) . That would be an interesting development both for Google. After hearing this, I was struck by the language on the Google Earth website: "One more step to creating a life-like 3-D model of the whole planet..""

It looks like Google are going to take yet another gargantuan leap in the development of the cyberspace world. Its one small step for Google, one giant leap for everyone else.

It seems like now would be a good time for google to announce this to the real world.
