Is Twinity a step to Web 4.0?
Twinity is a virtual world based upon the real world, even using Google maps to allow you to teleport and explore models of real world cities. Sure it empty, sure its sterile, but perhaps some big things could come from this.
Twintiy uses Google maps and real positions to lay out its virtual world, minus the people, business, working transit, and sounds. Twinity also has presence on Social Networking sites like twitter and facebook. I am thinking a quick use would be to combine foursquare with Twinity to make a very quick Real world Virtual world mashup. This mashup of the real world and virtual world in real time is what I see as Web 4.0, where semantic, spatial, and socail data is free to create a "space" as it needs it out of the infinite potential of the Internet.
