Well it's only a matter of time before you walk into the Amazon store in Second Life and all the shelves rearrange based on your preferences, creating a custom store just for you. There might be new movies from your favorite genres sitting right there at eye level when you go to the DVD section, and new books from your favorite authors in the bookstore.

That of course already happens in the 2D web.

What is different in virtual space is that the experience can be more immersive, and shared with other people. I can imagine going into a store with a friend and chatting with them about their favorite authors as we peruse our shared custom generated store. And then buying a book together to talk about later.

That would highlight the strengths of virtual spaces like Second Life: 3D graphics, player interactivity, and hooks into the real world. That's the killer app.
