Announcing the Virtual Reality Markup Language (VRML) Mailing List!

What is VRML?

Virtual Reality Markup Language or VRML is an evolving specification for a
platform-independent definition of 3-dimensional spaces within the
WorldWideWeb. It is designed to combine the best features of virtual reality,
networked visualization, and the global hypermedia enviornment of
the WorldWideWeb.

Why is there a VRML mailing list?

Due to the intense interest expressed within the WorldWideWeb community
during WWW '94 in Geneva, we have begun an open forum discussion for the
design and implementation of a platform-independent language for virtual
reality object design/scene design/linkage to the Web.

Is there a WorldWideWeb site for VRML?

Yes. The folks at WIRED have very kindly given us some of their bandwidth
and disk space. The URL for the VRML Forum is:

We hope that this site will grow into a major resource for individuals and
groups developing VRML viewers/authoring tools/etc. There are a number
of links from this site to other works, including two papers from WWW '94
which outline, in some detail, the requirements for VRML.
