    Maya Paris from SL brought this to my attention: BBC is letting you hang out in their newsroom via Oculus…is that immersive journalism too? :) http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/internet/posts/Virtual-Reality-the-future-of-TV

    I don’t know if it’s related but back in 2008 Nobody Fugazi in conjunction with the ALCU organised an event regarding G’tmo, the location looks similar to the one in the video but may well have been a different place.

    It’s a shame there’s not an archive of old Second Life sims for us to look up!
