Community Project and some Editorial Notes Virtual Mashup! Socks launched this cool project. Basically, the idea is to intigrate the virtual world with the digital/real one! Following are the steps to be in : 1) Take a photos of your avatar (whatever virtual world or games you inhabit) (Second Life, Warcraft, The Sims, IMVU, Lively are ok) 2) Incorporated the image of your avatar in a real life background related to your life (your hourse, your friends, your girlfriend) 3) Mix the real life with the digital/virtual ones with photoshop or other tool and upload on Koinup 4) Add the tag: VR2RL 5) More info? Contact Socks! Virtual Mashup is open to each virtual world and games! ––– This is a broadcast comment.

I had this fun idea for a meme type challenge. For the moment, I'm calling it "SL2RL", but it's open to anyone of any virtual world background. The idea is to take a pic of your avatar in whatever virtual world you inhabit, and incorporate a photo of your RL self into it somehow. I threw together a VERY quick sample here of my bunny and me at the snowbaord hill. I suppose you could go the other way as well, your avatar in YOUR real world too. So, who's in? ––– This is a broadcast comment.
