Is Google Earth the next Second Life?

Question of the day:
Is Google Earth the next Second Life?
Follow up question:
If Google Earth does turn out to bethe next Second Life, should they rename it Third Life?
This reminds me of something one of my computer science professors said to me back in college: "Let the world be its own model." This means that you shouldn't expend a lot of energy building up elaborate mental representations (or computational representations) of the world, when it's so much easier just to look at the world.
