I have been developing a campus-model environment with Andersen Consulting for 
the uses of world-wide training and project collaboration.  We are currently 
designing a client which incorporates not only MOO, but webservers, 
white-boarding, GUI controls, FTP, local program file storage and retrieval 
(powerpoint, word, corel, etc...), and 32-bit/3D graphics for the virtual 

 We have already run a pilot for MOO-type training (The pilot tested that it 
could be done, not that it was better than RL) across some of our offices in 
Europe and Scandanavia.  We used a basic, pilot, version of our GUI client for 
this endeavor (did not include white-boarding and 3D graphics), as we are still 
in the R&D phase for the final product. 

David,  if you or anyone else who reads this list is interested in 
collaborating on this type of environment, I am always looking for additional 
input, myself.  So, if you've been making a MOO-client or developing a virtual 
campus..... let me know!
