Vernon Reed ("Kahuna"),
ACTLab, U of Texas

will host a group discussion on the topic:

Being Multiple: Distributed Subjectivity in Cyberspace

The nature of cyberspace seems to tease apart the strands of monolithic self which are so tightly wound in "real world" life. What are the implications of digital embodiment for the evolution of our subject stance? Can we live parallel lives through our avatars? Do we want to?

Vernon Reed teaches and presents the state of the art in the field of 'Inhabited Virtual Worlds,' along with such collateral issues as VRML, on-line community building, and psychological and sociological implications of digital embodiment.
