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.
