You can’t start an article about optimism without mentioning the old adage, “Do you see the glass half full or half empty?”
The techno-geek in me that loves math and programming computers looks at the glass and determines my answer should be based on what is in the glass. If it is a fine wine, I could be satisfied with a half of a glass (optimist!). If it is a glass of tea, throw in some ice and fill it to the top (pessimist sees it as incomplete!).
The artist in me likes the half full glass. If it is too full, it appears as a solid shape. If it is too empty, it lacks dimension. Perfection is in a glass half full with a contrasting color of liquid to the glass color itself, then add a touch of reflection, light effects, and shading.
The scientist in me marvels at the composition of how the glass is made. The materials, process, imperfections, and final results all become part of the masterpiece. Then I dig into the composition of the liquid, another perfection of mixtures. How would I improve them? How does it smell and taste?
Is the glass half full or half empty? I think the glass could be full if we work together! ~ Dr. Aaron Dishno
So, what if the Glass is the complete potential of the Internet and the Liquid is everything you know so far?
In my eyes, I could see that the Internet potential glass is half full. But more importantly, a sleepless night’s vision almost 8 years ago gave me a peek at the potential that could make the liquid rise to a whole new level.
There are three ingredients in my bag that I am putting in the glass; traditional website technology, 3D gaming, and my own mystery ingredient.
Traditional website technology is everything you know about the internet in its current state. It is HTML and other languages of code; multimedia with pictures, sounds and video; communication with email, texts, and chatting; social media with blogs and posts; and a cloud server structure that makes it world-wide. For the most part, traditional websites have conquered acceptance by everyone in the world. Every new computer or mobile device can browse the Internet.
3D Gaming can provide a visual and audio experience with fluid animation, life-like sights and sounds, and interaction that engages the user in a virtual world. Just look how movie studios use computer aided graphics in action movies. It is all part of the 3D gaming advancements. In my opinion, it has achieved a high level of perfection in so many ways. It maximizes the abilities of the computer, graphics, and optimization of code. It is the symphony of computer programming. But because of the content and appeal of the 3D games, not everyone can appreciate it. They also demand higher graphics, processor, and memory requirements than most typical browsing or office computers.
Traditional websites lack the engagement of a 3D Game, and in general, 3D Games lack the seriousness of the real world and cross-the-board acceptance by all Internet users.
So what is the mystery ingredient? The HTTP3D Framework I am designing, bridges the gap between where traditional web technology stops and a serious side of 3D gaming can be created and shared by everyone.
I am filling the Internet potential glass with traditional web technology, enhanced by the experience of 3D games, and tied by the HTTP3D Framework in order to meet our vision:
Our vision is to change the the world by creating a 3D Internet Browsing experience that promotes education, welcomes businesses, and encourages everyone to grow as a community.
I am crazy enough to think we can do it.
