NASA in Second Life and "Open Sourcing" the Space Program

I just read this post over at Slashdot. NASA is using SecondLife to “Open Source” some of the activities and encourage public participation. Very interesting use of social networking (isn’t SecondLife really a type of a social network? A network of social networks if you will).

Now, when will my laptop be finally able to run SecondLife? The moment I switched laptops (I now have the Thinkpad T60p Wide, which is fantastic) ATI released drivers with OpenGL support, hence good for SecondLife, for my previous laptop :-( My current one has the Mobility FireGL for which I need to wait a new driver from Lenovo).
