Anyway, not every one wants to interact like they do in the real world. Sometimes you just want to sit on a computer without talking to someone, or you are too tired to walk around all day long.
If I had the option of walking around the internet or just browsing I would say browse. Its just not practical all the time to walk around. Say I want to read Gizmodo. I have to actually go into virtual reality to pick up a newspaper or something to read an article? Or this, I have to walk around a Wikipedia. Wikipedia COULD just be as easy as logging onto a computer and loading webpages like we do today, or with whatever computers are then such as glasses that only we can see the screen. The point is the internet is basically tons of data and we created things like Wikipedia partly because walking into a library is to much work. Especially if you are tired.
Like I said in my other post, virtual reality will be available when you want it, but not the only way. I don't think I would like dealing with some of these people on the forum face to face anyway. Its easier from a chair where you can listen to music, relax or have a snack. Try doing all that and still having room to walk around. The medium for the internet will change, such as how we access it (augmented reality, glasses, thought control etc), but the way we use it will stay more or less the same even though new ways of using it will be available.
EDIT: You said something about it even being in the timeline. The timeline is an ongoing project (as in, its creators cannot see the future). I agree with it, but no where in the timeline does it say that we will only use virtual reality. Its OK to have an opinion, so by saying that I respect your opinion and if virtual reality is what you want, who is to say you won't use it that way, they internet is becoming more personalized.
