Re: MOO and VRML 2.0 ?

As one who participates in running an educational MOO, I see uses 
for the combination of VRML and MOO that other wizzen might not be 
interested in.  If you are teaching a biology class, it will be very 
helpful to have a 3-D model of the heart or or organ.  If you are 
teaching art, it will be very useful to have a 3-d model of a ceramic or 
sculpture.  I could go on and on.  Have this in the type of interface I 
saw on something like Palace, I think the name was, is not very useful in 
that if you look away to watch one person speak, you miss what someone 
else said. You cannot log what has been said for later perusal either.  I 
am not suggesting that one form is better than another overall but I am 
saying there are uses for each one and I hope no one forgets that.
