After connecting with 150,000 people from 104 countries as part of an online brainstorming session, IBM has identified the key five innovations it claims will transform how people around the world work, play and live over the next five years.
The one of the “Next Five in Five” that really grabbed my interest was:
* The popular online immersive destinations, such as Second Life, will evolve into a full-fledged 3D Internet, allowing new kinds of interactive education, communication and consumer experiences.
To me this means that in world and real world will become more closely integrated, it will be easier to link in world and real world events, business activities and of course educational activities. So, learn anywhere, anytime with all the connections, resources and experiences that an environment like Second Life can give you!
