> Dear friends,
> 
> Another year (+) has flown by, and we again have the pleasure of
> inviting you all to come join us to help celebrate MediaMOO's birthday
> on Monday March 20th from 1-3PM EST.  Those of you keeping track will
> have noticed that this year the birthday celebration comes 2 months
> late.  No, we did not forget, we were busy arranging this special
> symposium, and hopefully the extra work will have been worth the
> delay.
> 
> We have worked hard to set-up a graphical server, in support of this
> years symposium topic.  We have developed a communication link between
> MediaMOO and this new server, giving you the choice of attending the
> symposium from MediaMOO, or from the new graphical server.  Please
> refer to the full announcement at:
> http://www.cc.gatech.edu/~carlosj/MediaMOO.html for more details.
> 
> We hope to see you all this coming Monday,
> 
> Sincerely,
> 
> The MediaMOO crew.

> Are 3D graphics in online environments useful for other than
> entertainment purposes?  Slick graphics have for a long time been
> one of the main selling points for entertainment products, but can
> they be effectively used in other domains?  Games like Ultima Online,
> EverQuest and Asheron's Call demonstrate that graphical environments
> can foster a sense of community.  Can graphical environments grow and
> prosper outside the games domain?  How will these environments differ
> from the more traditional text-based systems?  What challenges and
> opportunities do the use of graphics bring to the table?
> 
> In keeping with MediaMOO's spirit of exploration, we have set up a
> graphical server based on Microsoft Research's VWorlds
> <http://www.vworlds.org> platform.  This server has been linked to
> the MediaMOO conference room, allowing cross-world communication.  You
> will be able to attend the symposium from either server.  In order to
> use VWorlds you need a Windows 98/2000 computer with Internet Explorer
> 5+.  No other OS or browsers are currently supported.
> 
> For more information on the symposium, the panel members, and the new
> VWorlds server, please see:
