o Understanding a URL as a name is Web 1.0.

o Understanding a URL as a control is 2.0.

o Understanding a control in a scene is Web 3.0.

o Understanding controls in situations/scenarios is Web 4.0.

o Understanding scenarios as shapers of human behavior is Web 5.0.

Situation-space: real-time 3D with proximity/location based relationships over materials and audio. The situation determines the class of application.
