Bob Jacobson ("Cyberoid")
Editor and Author, INFORMATION DESIGN (MIT Press, forthcoming)

will host a group discussion on the topic:

Beyond "VR": Building Public Support for Our Work

"VR" and "Avatars" are terms that have limited value -- some would say, negative value -- in promoting the growth of an active, viable distributed worlds industry. This discussion will deal with the ideology of virtual worlds and how we can build a discourse that enables our success in the future.
