Tip: "VISIONS OF THE FUTURE" (BBC 4 TV)
I just watched the first part of a very interesting documentary series on BBC Four: "VISIONS OF THE FUTURE"
Second Life is also explored for a bit and the show predicts online 3D virtual worlds to become as important in the real world as 'e-mail'.
However, in the language used sometimes, it still makes it seem as if the 'real' world is seperate from virtual worlds. One scientist even spoke about 'Virtual-Reality AND REAL-Reality'
But on the website accompanying this series, I see a hopefull quote:
"how virtual worlds will become so realistic that they will rival the physical world. "
So here they fortunately use the word 'physical' instead of 'real'.
This documentary episode 1. " THE INTELLIGENCE REVOLUTION" is repeated Wednesday 7 November 8pm-9pm (UK time)
BBC 4 is available all over the UK on digital TV. And all over Western Europe Free To Air on satellite. www.lyngsat.com/28east.html
And for example in the Netherlands also on digital cable tv. (but thats not for free)
If anybody knows when this is repeated again, or broadcasted on any other TV channels, or available for download anywhere, please post and link it here.
