IBM sees emergence of 3D web

From the session "The BEST platforms for enterprise value" (VW Fall 2007)

“It feels very like the early Internet days, and we’re trying to learn from that and not repeat the mistakes,” said Sandy Kearney, IBM Global Director, IBM 3D Internet and Virtual Business. “I want to take us down this journey from a business value perspective and an enterprise perspective. It’s starting to become pretty gray area, because a lot of us believe we can be entertained in the enterprise space.”

With IBM's announcements this week of a group dedicated to providing open standards and mainstreaming the 3D Internet, Kearney's take on the metaverse is at the forefront of things.
