It has been a long time since I have blogged here. I almost forgot how, and doubt that anyone will notice. However, I ran across an early attempt at a virtual world called Habitat created by Lucasfilm back in 1986.

The wikipedia article has some interesting links, there is also a paper, “The Lessons of Lucasfilm’s Habitat” that, if anything else, tells us how some things are much the same, even while the technology and experience have progressed so much since the 80’s.
