Life Changing Moments… Death of Someone Close

In December 2016 I had a sturdy job as webmaster making over $100,000 a year with San Bernardino County and a second job as an adjunct professor at La Sierra University. My wife, Karen, had a well-paying position as a Special Education Teacher at a school district. We lived in a three-bedroom, two-bath house in the Inland Empire. We enjoyed weekends on a 30 foot sailboat. We are a highly educated couple with a doctorate, master degree, and multiple teaching credentials. So, why change anything? Time for a mid-life crisis? No, it didn’t quite happen that way.

My grade-school years were possibly the last time I remember the same complacent feeling in my gut. In a way, coasting through life, carefree, and having the feeling of mastering my own existence of radio control planes, boy scouts, playing trumpet, and school. It was right before 6th grade started, August 1979, when I received my wake-up call, well, a phone call that shook my existence. David Mraz, a playground friend and classmate had passed away from a brain aneurysm while swimming in a pool. A real wake-up call. I was 11 years old when I discovered my life was not a guarantee. I think I have been seriously committed to everything I do ever since.

The rest of my childhood was the product of aerospace. My dad, Bill, worked for a number of aerospace and manufacturing companies. When a contract ended, people were laid-off, and we moved to the next town, state, and job. Picture my mom, Bee, in a full-size Dodge van with five kids and a German Shepard dog, while my dad drove across the country. It is kind of a blur in my memory, but I think I attended eight different schools over the next six years. Since then, I have been incapable of coasting through life. Change became my norm. Accomplishment became my milestones. Ironically, I am not competitive with others. It is much worse, I am competitive with myself and keep raising the bar.

Skip forward to November 2016, mom Maggie lost her battle with ALS. To the end she fought for respect and dignity for everyone in the nursing home. She believed in me and I admire her courage and voice for others. I can’t let her down. My family believes in me. My wife believes in me. I believe in me. But it wasn’t until I felt the reminder of how fragile life is and no guarantee of tomorrow, that I decided I could not wait another day. I had to make a change now. Whatever amount of time I am given on this Earth I have to use to make a difference. I believe I can change the world for the better. Optimistically, I believe that people will embrace it.

If people will embrace 3D Browsing and our concept of 3D Buildings and 3D Communities, we can make the money needed to help so many people with ALS, homelessness, mental illness, addiction, and nursing home quality of life. These diseases and conditions affect everyone and the people closest to us. 

So I pictured where I want to be in a few years… Staying at the County job wasn’t going to get it done. Up to now, I had helped myself and now it is more important to me to help others. I can use my talents to make the money and help others. Don’t get me wrong, I want to make a lot of money to take care of me, my family, and my investors that put their faith in me!

By the time I asked my wife Karen about making a change and giving this business a fair shot, she could see in my eyes and heart that I no longer had a decision to make. It had been made for me, by the deepest part of me. Without hesitation, she once again put her trust in me and said yes.

Now, at the end of March 2017, We survived the change, put our stakes in the ground in San Diego, staying on our sailboat, opened an office, and working full-time for HTTP3D Inc. and WalkTheWeb.com 3D Browsing.

Some family and friend investors got us in the office, but we need your help to get the word out: Please try 3D Browsing at walktheweb.com and please contact me if you or someone you know would like a 3D Building website! They are great for businesses and organizations, and can draw more attention to your traditional websites. With your help, 3D Browsing will be the future of the internet!

Thank you for your continuous support,

3D Browsing: Not a Game?

3D Browsing may look like a game,  but don’t be fooled by appearance. Behind the scenes it is an HTML 5 website that brings together many of the latest programming techniques like partial page postbacks, iframes, canvas animation, touch controls, and css layers.

On traditional webpages, you click a link and the browser goes blank, the new page loads, then you see the results.

In 3D Browsing, as you walk towards a 3D Building it triggers the browser to go get more information – like clicking a link and opening a new webpage – the biggest difference is I keep the animation going continuously in the foreground as the information is then loaded and added to your current view all behind the scenes. To see it in action, go to https://3d.walktheweb.com. as you walk towards the 3D Building you will see all of the contents of the 3D Building load. Walking is done by mouse, keyboard, or touch screen and works on desktops, tablets, and smart devices as long as they support HTML 5 (which is most devices today).

3D Browsing: Loading and Unloading 3D Building Content as you walk!

If you back away from the 3D Building you will see the contents of the 3D Building disappear. This same thing happens to full 3D Buildings as you walk down the street.

Another feature in this demonstration is the ability to link to traditional web pages. For example, click on the billboard. Web pages can open in their own window or in an iframe in front of the 3D Browsing view. Then, try the video in the building – move around while it plays! I have already tested many other web objects like forms (text boxes, check boxes, file uploads, buttons, etc), scroll-bars, sound, and avatars with different chase camera views. I will make them available soon!

Finally, this web server is the first of its kind hosting 3D Building Websites, but it is designed to be hosted on other servers and interconnect 3D Buildings into 3D Communities all over the internet. So stay tuned… it is just the beginning of 3D Browsing.

I’m Still Here!

Dr. Aaron Dishno at Work…

First I would like to thank everyone for the great feedback on the “Walk the Web” 3D Browsing site (http://3d.walktheweb.com). It has been most helpful in my journey. I took all of your comments to heart and have been neck deep in the next stage of creating the production quality version of my 3D Building Websites and 3D Internet Browsing concept.

Since I am taking you along for the ride, I thought I would share with you some of the exciting project advancements.

First, I am integrating my prototype work and concept with a popular 3D Gaming engine. What this means to you is that the next version of 3D Building Websites will have HD quality graphics, smooth action, and full support for all devices including cell phones, touch screens, and tablets. You will be able to “Walk the Web” in 3D on any device as easy as playing a game, yet interact with the 3D Building Websites just like traditional browsing the internet (with a twist in 3D!).

Second, in the spring quarter at La Sierra University I will be teaching a new course in web programming! The course is titled, “Techniques and Technologies for Client-Side and Server-Side Web Programming”. This class was created in response to my demo of my 3D Internet Browsing invention. I have been given freedom to write the syllabus and select the book(s) and have been told that I can integrate my 3D project into the course. This will be a real opportunity for upcoming web programmers to dive into something new and be part of the creation of the 3D Internet. Needless to say, if I spot talent, there is a good chance you could have a future with HTTP3D Inc.  It is just a teaser for now, but more information will come after I create the syllabus.

Stick with me and I promise to deliver an excellent quality product for 3D Building Websites and 3D Internet Browsing. It is time to “Walk the Web!” (Read more about it at http://www.walktheweb.com)

My Passion to Change the World

I Can't do it Alone
I Can’t do it Alone

Do you have a work passion in life? Something that just feels like it is the epitome of your existence? Well… I am fortunate enough that I know mine. It is so powerful that it keeps me awake at night and takes me out of my comfort zone often. I know I must do whatever it takes (keeping it legal of course). Basically, the need to act is greater than the fear of failure. Can you relate?

Change the World

My passion is to invent and right now I can be the person that brings 3D Internet Browsing to the world. I have worked hard all of my life; 24 years in school and even more years working in computers. It all comes down to this, the program works, but it will take much more help to make the business work.

First the good:

  • The idea is sound and the patents and trademarks are filed. Legally, I am doing whatever it takes.
  • Everything I can imagine to try has passed my proof-of-concept testing. The current technology is fully capable of doing what I desire.
  • I am Partnering with La Sierra University Computer Science Department. This will help me find and train teams of programmers to perfect 3D Internet Browsing.
  • We implemented Cloud technology, which is working great for the current hosted websites and will meet any future need.
  • People that see a live demo really like it and can understand the potential.

Now the challenges:

  • The PCT world-wide patent gives you 30 months to negotiate patents in as many countries as you would like and the clock is ticking. This costs thousands of dollars. (The USA patent is a separate legal filing already pending).
  • The 3D rendering is great for Internet, not as great when compared to the latest video games. I need time and additional programmers to continue developing the product quickly.
  • I need an exceptional demo of a virtual 3D City that will help people experience my vision of 3D Internet Browsing.
  • My other job is paying for everything at this time, but it takes 40 hours a week off this project.
