hi,

can anybody who is closer to this project explain how its 'open 
source' aspect relates to the license agreement that people admit to 
before getting busy in SL? can there be something 'open source' (as 
in _source_) in SL?

curious,
-a

>A group of students from Brown University have launched an 
>open-source museum in the virtual world of Second Life. Known as 
>OSMOSA, the Open-Source Museum of Open-Source Art, the museum is 
>located »in Second Life's Eson region« and features a mess of 
>artworks that anyone can copy, modify, alter or otherwise contribute 
>to. The museum itself is open to alteration as well, which is a 
>fantastic idea. The modding got under way at the opening party 
>Tuesday night: an already-altered image of Manet's Olympia (with 
>space helmets added to make it more excellent) came out the other 
>end of the night with some interesting additions and adjustments...
>
>I dig this project. You can read more at OSMOSA's wiki page, but 
>basically, according to one of the students, "By "open source," we 
>mean that OSMOSA is in the public domain: visitors can add, modify, 
>and remove art from the museum. In addition, the OSMOSA building is 
>also open source, in that anyone can modify, add to, or delete parts 
>of the structure." Love it.

>The museum was organized by Deborah Abramson, Kiera Feldman, and 
>Davis Jung (aka Deborah Maertens, Koco Furse, and Jinsaedavis Jun in 
>Second Life, respectively), and built out with help from SL 
>residents Kenny Hubble, Soupcan Tomsen, and "the Loyalist College 
>Team."

>As a living art-structure, OSMOSA could be very cool. One thing the 
>project is lacking at the moment, though, is a good way to record 
>the changes going on there. I'm waiting at the very least for an 
>OSMOSA blog, or perhaps a Flickr set where the OSMOSAns could record 
>the evolution of the site. Regardless, I think it's a great idea, 
>and I look forward to seeing what comes out of it. I'm not saying an 
>open-source museum is any better or worse a way to produce art, I'm 
>just interested in watching things bubble.
