3D web as disruptive technology - Mitch Kapor

I've had the videos of the IBM & MIT Media Labs conference on virtual worlds running in the corner of my monitor all morning, and I was highly impressed with Mitchell Kapor, Linden Lab Chair, and his view of virtual worlds as disruptive technology. He brings up the term macromyopia, which is a nice word that captures the idea that we overestimate change in the short term and underestimate it in the long term.

Anyhow, his talk is entertaining and thought-provoking, and worth the investment of about 45 minutes of your time.
