Get Active Worlds Now!

Avatars99 will be happening all over Cyberspace, in a virtual world near you. Don't think you can get inside? Using an plain vanilla PC or Mac on a slow dial up connection to the Internet? Well, think again! These worlds are built to work with your system today. Virtual worlds use different technologies and for each you have to download its own progam, called a browser. You can run several virtual worlds at once (and yes, they should work just fine on a slow modem connection). All of these worlds offer free use as a "guest" or "tourist", and this is all you need to get into the action before and during the conference on December 4th. So lets get started..

Get a World
Use the following table to decide which worlds to download and install, and lists which type of events are will be held within each type of world. Remember, all of these worlds are provided by other companies, not by us (the Contact Consortium), so you will have to rely on their support. We work closely with them and use these worlds every day, so we expect you will have a great experience. There are many fabulous books on the subject of virtual world cyberspace, see our official Avatars98 bookstore and get them on your shelves! You can also preview and download many virtual worlds at the avatar teleport.
