"CP Temporarily Offline
This Thursday, July 30, Content Paradise will be offline in order to roll out the first round of site enhancements. The new site launch June 1 brought a lot of changes to CP, but we knew we weren’t stopping there. We have been busy making smaller changes along the way, but in order to roll out these enhancements, the store will need to go offline.CP will be closing between 9am PST (4pm GMT) and 10am PST (5pm GMT) and will be down for approximately 2 hours. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes, and appreciate your patience as we bring you these much requested enhancements."

SketchWorlds

Blurb says:
"SketchWorlds lets you build your 3d world, where you can interact, play and meet people. You can make your world public and let anyone from anywhere in the world connect, or close it off for private use only. "

Not one for verbal diarrhoea, I shall merely allow the reader to make their own conclusions visitng that website.

a follow-up on the fortunes ( good n bad ) of VRML

So I was a VRML nut back in the day ( 1990s).

It went away like the IBM Cryptolope and a host of other dot-com boom vapourware.

But this 2005 article notes X3D the next incarnation of VRML.

Well, it's 2009 today. We have Second Life from Linden Labs and it's fortunes has ups and downs too. And we have XML in use for virtual 3D over the internet.

Let's see where this goes.
