Perhaps you should take a look at some of the work produced by uma 
(http://www.uma.at). They won an award back in ~1998 for a similar 
application called "schafft:wissen". And I assume they still have the 
Melvin platform which would work with ontologies and stuff similar to 
what you do (I'm guessing a little bit). Uma has some very bright 
people, and really know everything about how to make the most out of a 
3d context for browsing complex and relatively unstructured information. 
Maybe some of them are still listening on these mail-list if you are 
lucky. Maybe they would be interested in your work.

Some feedback. Since I used to work for uma 10 years ago, what you 
present is really nothing new to me. But it looks good, feels good, and 
is for sure worth exploring.
