Ars Electronica Archive in Second Life

Last year, during Laval Virtual 2009, i saw the Archidemo's guys. These researchers use Second Life to show archives.





In this archive, users can browse images and webpages of Japanese winners of Prix Ars Electronica 1987 to 2007. And also, this archive support Livecam function (the scene of exhibition will be projected) and twitter search widget. I'm constructing new function contributing the chatlog in Second Life to twitter now.
