This morning, I read two blog posts that mentioned UpNext that made me think about how people view us.
The first post was from FredCavazza.net and his entry entitled, Virtual Universes Landscape.
He talks about the Virtual World landscape and how it is a real business opportunity (i.e. some of these companies are generating significant revenue). There is also a great map he made, dividing up the virtual worlds.
It is hard to see, but try to find us. (Hint: We are to the right of another small startup.)
The second post comes from Emad Fanous of Yellowbot on his personal blog. The post is entitled, The Future of Maps: 3D Immersion
This post groups us with 3D imaging companies that are working to put photorealistic images on the web. He talks about 3D immersive maps and how they might change the local landscape.
So where do we lie?
- Virtual World: Second Life, World of Warcraft, Google Earth...
- 3D Immersive Maps: Everyscape, Earthmine, Google Streetview...
