yep tho perhaps the purposive intent is the key in these issues...
I believe the idea-form is the true virtual reality, which can be represented in various environments... (text, image, video/sound, immersive vr). what is the message/experience you are trying to convey? (watch out for avatars bearing guns !) What about accessability for the blind and deaf?

Providing we stick to open standards we can't really go wrong, even if our x3d world can't be experienced by the majority of native Africans (YET), we still have done as much as we need worry about in that regard.

Games generally seem to be the most  axcessable engaging "3d" experience out there... games create a sense of psychic investment with the "virtual system", the players psyche is in some way linked to the  presented media, to me games are potentially high art... why can't net art be more like that :) ?
