How might vr impact the web?

We need to stop thinking about this as either 2d or 3d. There is lots between. Already.


Listening to The Web Ahead (96: Reinventing the Web in Virtual Reality with Josh Carpenter and Vladimir Vukicevic):

Virtual reality technology is starting to take off. VR hardware has been steadily improving. VR films are getting a lot of attention. VR games are leveling up. But so far, virtual reality systems are closed platforms, each working with the equipment and software of one company. What could a cross-platform web of Virtual Reality look like? What might web designers do with a fully-immersive web experience? There's a team at Mozilla working on WebVR. Jen Simmons talks to Josh Carpenter and Vladimir Vukicevic to find out what they are doing.

The Web Ahead - why structuring contents matters

The Web Ahead - 101: Structuring Content with Eileen Webb:

Planning a content system of types and fields yields much better results. Why? How? Eileen Webb joins Jen Simmons to explain exactly what this means.
