Virtual math spaces

CyberMath is a shared virtual environment for exploring mathematics. I've long wanted to make Graphing Calculator into an authoring tool for such an interactive immersive space. The popularity and success of World of Warcraft hints at the possibilities in coming years.

Does anyone here use Second Life or have any knowledge of Croquet? The technology for building these spaces is maturing. I'm now wondering how to make it accessible to teachers and curriculum authors so that they can focus on the mathematical content and pedagogy while constructing mathematical landscapes.

I would welcome any advice.
