We discuss the evolution of teleconferencing and networked visualization applications to support 3-dimensional display technologies. The implications of a continuation of Moore’s law, coupled with constraints on device clock rate due to power consumption, suggest that future end system and network architectures will become increasingly parallel in nature. Given this, we review trends in programming language design that will ease development of highly concurrent systems, and suggest how network transport protocols might evolve to support them.
