REST to LSL via Python and Comet

For those that may not know, I got a job at Linden Lab, the creators of Second Life. I really enjoy what I do, and I find this reduces the urge to work on recreational programming on the kinds of things that I enjoy. (It has also seemed to reduce my blog output to almost nil.)

I've had a project on the back burner for a while that involves pushing data into LSL (the Linden Scripting Language runtime that Second Life uses) over Comet.

And it works amazingly well! Of course, I just had to toss REST in there as well.

I'll release this code as open source next week. Meanwhile, here's a movie to show you what the hell I am talking about. I also like how this movie shows off the surreal aspect of collaborative programming!
