Virtual Medical Informatics?

I've been spending a bit of time checking out the virtual world, Second Life and its possibilities for Medical Informatics.  I think there is a lot that virtual worlds can bring to the practice of healthcare, things that go beyond the typical 2d environment.  I'm starting to form some opinions of my own, but at this point I am mostly still exploring.  (You can get another side of the story from Colin Fahrion someone in the know and whose opinion I very much respect and is my cousin!)

If you are interested, and would like to keep up with my travels in Second Life, I am using Snapzilla and putting up my SL Healthcare Tourist postcards there. Snapzilla is still very much beta.  I can't seem to fix the text formatting at the moment.

I'm "Knoh Oh" in world. Feel free to IM me in-world.
