The Fusing of technology and business models to create the 3D Internet

Social Networks, 3D Visualization / Simulation, Video Games and Virtual Worlds
IntroductionThe high-fidelity 3D video gaming, 3D visualization and simulation (VizSim) and virtual worlds (VW) markets are expanding rapidly due to

 increased penetration of high speed broadband, pervasiveness of computers with high-end graphic processor units (GPU) and enhancements in operating systems. Until recently, these industries have existed in their own right with little overlap and varying business models. In parallel, the emergence of sophisticated social networking applications on the internet such as Facebook and MySpace have attracted hundreds of millions of users.
Some interesting Internet statistics
As at 31 March 2009 there were 1.59bn PC users with internet access. This is 23.8% of the world population. The growth between 2000 and 2008 was 342%.
Broad Band Access:PC users with broadband access (432m as at 2009 with 652m projection in 2013). An increase of 150%.
