Google enters virtual worlds

Particularly I do not fit much the idea of ​​these virtual worlds, on the one hand I get the impression that I'm going to win a virus in one of those public restrooms or that if I do not go in for several days, when some criminals have attacked my avatar and they have violated it. jejeje

lively google But Google cares little about my phobias, so it has released Lively, a similarity of Second Life but of the great owner of the virtual world. It seems that he has to take some advantage of it, since there are already several Hispanic communities that have created their worlds; according we have, some applications are already integrated into Google Maps but surely Google intends to integrate it into Google Earth so soon, when you browse you can open a layer where you can enter the bubbles of Street Maps will tell you ...

Virtual World SIG, maybe if you give it a geomatic orientation and let us upload data, let's reconstruct Google Earth but with better precisions
