… the Meshverse(which is more than a 3D web) will subsume text-based stuff and then transform it. This is already happening in Second Life as the Mozilla based uBrowser technology brings web pages in world as functional decoration on the surfaces of 3D objects. When there’s a need to scroll through traditional text we’ll zoom full screen onto a window. This is just an evolutionary twist on maximize/minimize controls and the Dock(Mac) or Task Bar(Windows). Over time, we’ll see less and less text and most images will be snapshots of 3D models. There will also be more functional sound and Tangible User Interfaces(TUI). Text will remain but in a secondary, support role.
