Abstract

In this chapter, we describe the development of e-commerce in the context of the various metaphors currently used for online shopping. We explore the metaphor of a 3D marketplace and the implementation of such a model in e-commerce systems. Finally, we discuss the efficacy of culturally diverse e-marketplaces for maintaining the integrity of languages and cultures along with global economic communities.
