Oooh! Good one. Yes, and I hope this will also extend mediacally (???). I joked with some friends about setting up an inworld webcam and beaming that to the world outside. If you could do such things in public locations (CAMERA FILMING ON LINDEN LAND: DON'T WANT TO RUIN YOUR PRIVACY, BUT THERE YOU HAVE IT FOLKS!) and have those streams playing from secondlife.com and 3rd-party websites.

Actually, you know what, it's funny you mention this because Trimda Hedges has been doing such a thing lately -- I think he's been talking to Reuben Linden about it too. Let me think of what else is happening here... well there's his involvement in the Discovery Hunt project which links him to Cristiano Midnight, creator of Snapzilla. Which is very cool indeedlyso.

One thing I wish SL had was automatic camera mode or some sort of time-lapse shutter.

We'll eventually do this for the Salons. Right now we're limited to around 50 attendees because of the lag when too many avatars gather in the same place. But when we can stream the event with audio and video out onto the Web we can have hundreds or thousands of attendees from all over the world :-) I've also spoken with someone who's looking into making SL chat and IM interoperable with Web-based IRC stuff so outside attendees can communicate in-world. Very cool new abilities.

I saw this post the other day. Looks great! I'll have to get in touch.

This is fantastic. Talking about taking snapshots of the realworld to create yellow pages and translating this idea to the virtual world brings a lot of memories to my mind. I once developed an approach to capture spatial cognitive of large scale virtual environments. The paper is available here

or IEEE explore digital library.
I would love to be involved in the implementation of something like that in SL. I am not familiar with the scripting language. But is it powerful enough to allow me to reimplement this concept.

Ramesh, thanks for posting this.

I'll send your question to someone who can answer it better than I can. Also check out this page on the Linden Scripting Language (SL's language) for yourself, too: http://www.sluniverse.com/lsl.html.

In the mean time, if anyone reading this has insights on using LSL to approach Ramesh's idea, please chime in.
