Next Generation Virtual Worlds – Social Web + Virtual Worlds + Content + People

I have written about this before… in a nutshell… I would like to see a grid of grids approach, a single instance world where travel is possible with a common identity and a suitable “travel outfit” and “travel pack” or “suitcase” (intelligently filtered and adapted) and where radically different newer technologies and user interactivity modalities can be introduced alongside legacy facilities and which can gradually build a community and content.
