Hi, I am excited about this cutting edge Internet

I have traversed the majority of Webinfo about
VRML and am more excited.

Particularly, I saw TGS http://www.cts.com/~template/vrml/vrmllinks.html

And found I saw possibilities emerging.
I read some of the Archive.. and am not sure if
this was covered, but something practical may
be the importance of the Home Page.

I see a future of each time you connect to a different
server you must download their Home World/Page to
get a framework or frame of reference for their site
Home PAges are used right now as a point of origin
and organization of the information and your impression
of a site is usually based on the quality of the Home

Well a connection would download the Home World and
Enter the site's VR Space and interact offline with
the page via a browser.
A link is selected, it is on the same server, and
the page/object is introduced to the user in the sites
reference world that has already been downloaded to
the client.

If a link is selected that connects elsewhere, then
the remote servers world needs to be downloaded.

Default worlds of infinite Green/Blue horizons or Grey/Black
could be used if not on a VRML server.

Just a thought about the structure of the worlds.

Keep moving forwards.

A few gentle suggestions on VRML list etiquette:

The behaviors which can emerge from a mailing list range from the inspiring to
the infuriating. In general, the Golden Rule works as well in cyberspace as it
does in real space. And while you may be enthusiastic about some point or
another, graphic illustrations and other forms of rhetorical strategy might
serve only to make people feel bullied and unwilling to share their pearls of
wisdom with us.

And, while you may have a lot to say, please refrain from posting thousand-line
messages to the list, unless they are immediately relevant to the subject under
discussion. You can _always_ post the URL, leaving the list subscribers the
option retrieving such a momentous piece of work to another, more appropriate

Rather than having each of you introducing yourselves to the entire list, may
we suggest that you mail some biographical information about yourselves to list
moderator Brian Behlendorf (brian@wired.com). He is maintaining a biographical
archive of list members which we'd like to grow and use as an important
resource. If you care to pass along a URL to a personal Web page, he'll
integrate that, as well.

This is a technical list; most of the time the talk should be technical. While
certain debates are expected (any discussion of languages foments strong
opinions in people), it is generally wiser to reserve comment until after the
essence of the argument has been framed; otherwise, debates can meander over
epistemological terrain without covering the subject at hand.

Finally, while list moderators rarely need to bare their teeth in the
performance of their duty, it should be said that the moderators are here to
facilitate a clear discussion of the issues, and will not tolerate persistent
disruptions in that process.

Thank you and welcome to the list.
