Avatars99 Colonizing Cyberspace

Avatars99 Schedule of Events
Avatars99 will take place inside several virtual worlds platforms supported on Windows and Mac computers on modem dialup (28.8 or higher) speeds. Each platform has its own content, community and culture, and is supported by a different company or institution. We thought it best to give each of the platform communities their own day to celebrate, so Avatars99 is a series of events spread over weekends from October 30th through to December 5th, 1999. The next event date is Saturday December 4th, with events in Active Worlds and Onlive Traveler.
