Michael Palmer on LambdaMoo
MUDing is a popular past-time amongst various segments of the online
community - many a University student has fallen foul of their lures.
The difficulty has often been creating one of your very own. MOO (for
MUD - Object Oriented) is an OO-based programming language, descended
from C and Pascal, which is easy to learn, easy to program, and
provides a rich interactive component. Human interaction with a MOO is
in the form of English-like sentences.
This talk will look at MOOs, both interacting with them and
programming your own. It will also investigate several non-traditional
uses of the MOO system.

Abstract coming soon. It's abount viruses and MTAs and 'stuff'. ;)
Dinner - about 9pm
After the meeting at the House of Boiled Television Entrails. The real
name is of course, "The House of Guang Zhou", and you'll find it in
Haymarket (especially if you follow the crowd at the end of the night).
"Think video. Think text flickering over your walls. Think games at
work. Think anything where a staid, link-based browser is useless."
