Is IBM Honest Enough To Step Up To the 3D Standards Challenge?

Tell ya what, Rich, here's the challenge.  Let's say these articles are
written by misinformed bloggers (eg, Irv) and bad journalists (say Terdimann
at CNet).  Let's say Sam Palimpsano is a nice fellow and wants to do the
right thing with the $100 million.  It's easy.  X3D is an ISO standard.  All
IBM has to do is work with ISO.  They can join the Web3D Consortium if they
want to, that's really cheap, or not.  But working with ISO is something IBM
certainly knows how to do because they pretty much invented markup working
with them and everything that has followed since then came out of their

If they do that and work on X3D, I'll take it back.   If instead they try to
do what Intel and IBM did and lost, then it's time to fight them on every
street corner on the WWW.

Are you basing your denunciation on more than the one sentence in the 

As far as I know, our "3D Internet" efforts are going to be all 
standards-based, just like or WS/SOA efforts.
