Life Mesh

Along similar lines as the MIT Technology Review article I recently wrote about, Alex Iskold of the Read/Write Web puts forward terminology that nicely captures the key elements of the meshverse although he mashes together virtual and mirror worlds into Digital Life while referring to augmented reality as Life Digital:

For the purpose of this post, we define Digital Life as a collective of the virtual world technologies that are bringing life to the digital realm. All of them create environments where participants live in a digital form. These worlds mix the real and imaginary, they both follow and break the laws of physics.

Life Digital – a set of technologies that aims to put a digital mesh on top of our reality.

Digital Life vs Life Digital: Our Inevitable Digital Future

Digital Life/Life Digital is smooth – it’s a nice way to capture the interplay although augmented reality includes lots of strictly analog flows.
