The questions asked about the proposal were usually technical
or to do with marketing, so rather than answering all the questions, I would
like the following points to be understood (I am only one man so leave me alone,
but seriously): -
No real hardware or software specifics are given, because as I said this
was a proposal looking for an investor so until the project was assigned a
budget, then it seemed pretty pointless to me, to undertake such a study.
ISPís will have to switch to being ASPís so as
to provide good content and stay in the running, the networked databases
were seen as providing that content, whilst being centrally controlled and
in real-time and possibly by a single operator.
The proposal was based upon the convergence of a lot of existing
technology and specialist areas.
The convergence of these technologies, may still allow a very small
number of large companies to control this type of content or system,
at least in the short term, (I am on the side of
The whole of history, time and space, along with anything that can be
seen or imagined, is still up for grabs, in this
future virtual market place.
No one company will be able to own all of the virtual real estate
available, but I believe whoever gets to market or the rights to use certain
characters and environments first, still stands the best chance. I can see
the legal minefield ahead, with the lawyers making millions out of the
legality of who owns what in virtual space.
Interactions between the public and A.I. characters should provide
enormous amounts of revenues for whoever controls those characters.
This will be just the start of a very large and lucrative growing
industry, the proposal was written in accordance with the expected growth of
this industry, along with the high bandwidth networks, but more importantly,
a user base big enough to make the proposed system profitable.
The platforms needed by the end users, to display and interact with the
systems proposed content, will dramatically increase within the next 5
This means, that the databases owners or developers could have exploited
and profited, from the growth within this market sector to its maximum
effect, by not being hardware dependent. It was seen as being a purely
software based system capable of being installed and utilised by almost any
ASP and end user platform.
Most of this was written between 1999 and 2005, but as you can
see, it is all becoming true?
