The Girl with Error Message Eyes

Saw this on Boing Boing

Intriguing example of accidental art / social commentary.
Apparently due to systems problems on Second Life, the textures for this models eyes are missing, and have been substituted with error messages.

It does seem that Second Life (and to a lesser extent the entire MMORG trend) are really beginning to resemble the virtual worlds written about by authors such as William Gibson.

I'm going to have to check out second life. Seems like a virtual Burning Man meets the Sims.
