Summary of collaboration projects
Last updated at 12:06 pm UTC on 8 December 2004
Here is a summary of responses to a posting I made in September, 1999, asking about 'colllaboration' efforts.

Dino (gte949e@prism.gatech.edu) is working on ICQ protocols for Squeak:

Hey, I'm doing ICQ for squeak... It works perfectly too! But I'm working on something a little more general right now... instead of just text communication, how about object communication?


Jece (jecel@lsi.usp.br) offered this Morphic related
link to a 2-D collaboration space.

Luciano Notarfrancesco (luciano2@mail.ru) described file-ins for building blocks for collaboration:


I've implemented:
o. speech synthesis (text-to-speech and singing voices)
o. simple gestures synthesis (2D faces, SouthPark-like toons)
o. 3D facial animation (the Waters' muscles model)
I haven't released it yet, but if you want anything of this just e-mail me and I will send you a changeset. I think this stuff might be useful for you if you want to implement avatars.


A version I downloaded from SqueakMap on 4/28/03 is here: Avatar.cs.gz

Ivan Tomek (ivan.tomek@acadiau.ca) described work on a MOO in Visualworks.

We have implemented a working MOO prototype in VisualWorks,
mostly just a framework with limited functionality. We are now designing another version, possibly to be functional around the end of the year.


Mark Guzdial (guzdial@cc.gatech.edu) offered a description of collaboration work being done by the Ga Tech Squeakers:

Joining in the chorus of people working on this: Creating a "collaborative dynabook" is the focus of the Georgia Tech Squeakers.
