Hmm, so perhaps, thanks to OpenSocial, MyGoogleWorld will look much more like Kaneva with their quasi-Facebook "companion website".

What does Google mean with "a future when people will use their real identities"? ;) My account under Google is for Gwyneth Llewelyn too...

That companion website on Kaneva is vital though, since I can manage all of my media assets, relationships, grouping, etc, without ever logging in. SL is supposedly going to have this, but they have a much slower dev cycle.

Google can implement and WELL. They lack avatars, but every other component and a massive 3D object repository already, yeah, game on.

I've seen this one for a while and have been scrambling to recreate all of my work in SL in formats that can import to any 'defacto standards'-based virtual world or game world that comes along.

Yes, Google can implement well and elegantly, and so I'm looking forward.

I just wish they'd instead buy out SL, which suffers more from a lack of deep pockets and numbers of engineers than anything else in pushing development along. Their cultures are similar. Google would add a more accessible interface and an ability to scale. Imagine SL with Google server power!
