3D virtual worlds are becoming very popular in the last years. A good example would be Second Life and all the possibilities it presents to the users. A very interesting thing area that i started looking into was the 3d virtual museums inside second life. Some were very pleasant to navigate through however others were a bit frustrating and missing a lot of important information about the art works. The question that comes into mind is the following.
Do you feel a 3D virtual museum would become a threat to real museums? and what does this mean for different cultures?
