I have been collaborating with several people about a top level domain name for all virtual worlds. This would allow people to know when they visit the www.organization.??? they would always be visiting the organizations virtual world environment and not a traditional 2D website. Like many of you envision that all companies and organizations will have a virtual world presence. As interopabilaty and integration occurs enabled by technology such as hypergrid, Open Grid Protocol, verse protocol and metaverse exchange protocol we will soon see seamless integration between worlds.
2D browser and 3D viewers starting to merge with browsers in 3D viewers and viewers in 3D browsers. This leads me to the conclusion that it is imperative we have a Top Level Domain Name for Virtual worlds so users can decide 1) do I want to launch a traditional 2D website (WebsiteName.COM, WebsiteName.NET, WebsiteName.ORG) or 2) do I want to launch a 3D Virtual World website (VirtaulSiteName.????).
If you have ideas on what that top level domain should be come collaborate at http://www.v-business.com/blog/?p=5 and lets work out together the domain naming structure for virtual worlds.
See you in the metaverse
