[X3D-Public] multiuser worlds meeting, Siggraph 09, August

Hello Chris,

I would love to attend and make a live presentation of
Office Towers/X3Daemon, but it looks like I could use a
surrogate or perhaps some simple assistance for a virtual
presentation instead if that is permitted. 

I believe the later would actually work well to demonstrate
the theme "How do virtual worlds affect hearts and minds",
and the platform is definitely robust to the point of being
capable of successfully carry such a presentation and maybe
even help make history.


PS. A copy of this was sent to the lists in case someone
would like to volunteer for assistance with the above.
