possibility for 3D content creation?
Can I Create Content?
Most of the avatars, clothing, and objects were created by vendors working for Google. We're also working with a small number of trusted testers, vendors and creative agencies as part of a test for creating custom items.
We hope to enable user-generated content and even more customization soon, but until then we've given you tons of choices from the catalog to help personalize your Lively experience.

At first glance it seems like that.
But being linked more closely to social networking, I can see it being more like a 3D Facebook or Myspace.
Rather than play silly flash based facebook Texas Holdem with your friends, you'll actually play 3D Texas Holdem with your friends, sitting at a virtual table, smoking a virtual cigar at a virtual casino.
Rather than that food fight application on facebook, you can have a virtual food fight with FPS mechanics.
Looking at photo's of your friends, could actually entail sitting on a couch, opening up a photo album and flipping through the pages?
I dunno, seems like a LOT Of possibility. I don't see it as am MMO at all (notably the lack of trolls and racial remarks).
Something like the FUN-Wall in facebook, could just be a giant wall of grafitti you have in your pad, where people can write or tag something really fast.

Those were all things that Second Life had in the early betas, if I remember correctly. But when I played a release of SL, it was horrible and missing most of those features that I liked the idea of (or maybe they were buried too deep in the rest of the garbage).

Hey Jox that's interesting. Never heard of this recreation of Falling Water.
However, you might think I am weird (as a game art professional who happen to have an architecture degree...) but I would rather watch a filmed walkthrough/documentary about the house rather than WASD my way through it.
I really love the beginning of the game flythrough tho - since it gave me a great impression of the 'architectural promenade' this house features (as opposed to photographic stills). However I'd rather be guided by a talented filmmaker or architecture critic, than being let free in a space I might miss important details of.
I imagine this could be enhanced with flashing/rotating commentary hotspot to click for details, ala TF2. But in the end I dunno, it still feels a bit cheap doesn't it?
Is the map available for download?
