I might be interested if the technical bias is not towards VRML. I sort of
lost track of the latter part of this month's discussion as this became very
much the focus and although I am working directly with things like 3D
systems on the net and multiuser interaction I do not use VRML nor even see
this as automatically the technical route to go. Given that a large part of
my practice concerns artist's authored software that is both interactive and
generative (which may or may not be 3D, may or may not be multiuser and may
or may not be online) a narrower focus would not satisfy my interests. But
keep me informed...
