I saw the news of the resurrected Myst but hadn't thought they might use SL... though that does make sense. Thanks for connecting the dots.

Nice! When great galaxies collide. :D

One thing I admire so much about Myst Online Uru (those of you "back in the day" will recall it was birthed from the loins Telador Island) is the gorgeous texturing. There's a lot of beauty that went into that which could be applied elsewhere in Second Life on a fantastic scale.

I once mused if the classic Myst Island could be brought into SL. I think aDen Ennui had some mad ideas about that.

Uru-in-SL looks gorgeous with local lighting too:

(This is an old picture from T.I., but illustrates the same principle — those platforms are like oysters!)

nice Hamlet, I look forward to checking this out.

I think cross world activities will get quite common. I've always loved Joi Ito's example of prepping for WoW raids in SL, and of course visitors to the Laguna Beach sim in SL can learn how to get to MTV's Virtual Laguna Beach (which is on the Makena/There platform). If we see a proliferation of virtual worlds, and I think we will, these embassies will become more interesting, and hopefully the bridges between worlds richer and richer.
