The Frontier of Web 4.0
Been watching the early growth of Twinity. Today got some community help in setting up the VoIP and it was cool having a talk in Parliament Square. This opens the possibility of people in the real Square using something like Foursquare talking to people in Twinity about a place. Imagine the potentials for tours? Why use a tour guide who happens to be available. You can use an Android to get a guide in real time who speaks you language and knows what you like, and they can walk with you over thousands of miles to give you a tour.
Okay its not there yet. But he potential is amazing. I have posted my desktop o show how the newer touch large screen desktops will open an amazing space for this kind of work. Look at all the places I could have other apps opened as I interact with a virtual world.
So much concentration on the hand held device and the Apple space. But remember that people in fixed locations or with disabilities are having a major set of virtual worlds opened to them.
