Life 1.5?

Check this out. A great article on SL/RL bidirectional causality. It describes how SL is effecting RL events and practices. Look at the bit about the plumbing wiki. Very cool.
I also talk about some of this on the Sonar website. It seems that SL is morphing into something beyond the virtual into a singular physical/virtual surface. Life 1.5? The idea of hybrid space is not new, but it hasn't had its go with Second Life yet. I think it's only a matter of short time before we begin seeing programs which allow events in Sl to directly effect events in RL. Hit a button in SL and a window opens on a building in RL.. Turn off the lights in your SL house and the RL lights go out. TransArchitecture is here and its just the beginning.
