XML web services interface to the libsecondlife .NET API to Second Life. We're currently writing our own version but might be worth looking at if it has all the features that we need to create fully functioning avatars in SL.

BBC NEWS | Technology | Google backs private Moon landing

Search giant Google is offering a $30m prize pot to private firms that land a robot rover on the Moon.

The competition to send a robot craft to the Moon is being run with the X-Prize Foundation.

To claim the cash, any craft reaching the lunar surface must perform a series of tasks such as shoot video and roam for specific distances.

More cash will be given for snaps of old equipment left on the Moon

Firms interested in trying for the prize have until the end of 2012 to mount their Moonshot.

- That's what life should be about!

Cyber Extruder generates a face image for avatars like those in SL from a normal 2D photo of your face. Time to build my "real" self in SL!

Nice account of the work done by IBM in making virtual worlds accessible to visually impaired users. Pity it doesn't mention the work already done by blind programmers in making things like Doom accessible. Their approach is the logical one and mirrors some of the things that we've been beginning to work towards.
