Is the web due for a major change?
Moderator: David Singer,
Advisory Board and Apple Inc.
Disruptive technologies approaching?
- Optimizing horse-drawn buggies when cars are about to arrive
- Abandoning cars because jet-packs will soon be common
Examples of possible disruption – 3 or 3D?
The world talks about two '3' technologies:
- Web3 – claims to disrupt the underpinnings
- 3D/VR – could move us from the 'flat graphics' we've had for years
This is not a Blockchain or Metaverse panel!

- View: Presentation for all, e.g. Immersive Web
Be a facilitator, not a arbitrator.
- Credential management is potentially disruptive
- De-centralized technical approaches are getting traction
- … even if major disruption doesn’t seem to be happening (yet?)

- User interface is changing and evolving, including 3D
- New CSS powers will lead to a radical shift in website weight
- New Immersive hardware won't replace 2d interfaces but will augment
- The immersive web has two sides:
- the imperative WebXR side (well established)
- a declarative side (very early days)
- How do we watch the rear-view mirror?
- How do we make informed comment on trends in our field?
