Dear Webmaster,

We seek Web sites interested in joining our Virtual Places software
beta test program.

In a nutshell, Virtual Places is a client-server architecture that
allows Web users to meet and communicate at Web pages in real time.
It consists of the Doors Server and the Sesame Navigator. The Doors
Server runs in parallel with the Web server (no modifications
required), transforming Web pages into shared spaces where people can
meet and communicate. The Sesame Navigator, an extension of NCSA
Mosaic, allows users to communicate using real-time audio and/or text
chat, and navigate around shared spaces in guided tour groups.
Both are available now for Sparcstations running SunOS 4.1.3 and will
soon be available for Solaris 2.3 and HP-UX 9.X. Sesame for Windows
will be available at a later date.

If you are interested in joining our beta test program please use
the application form, available at our home page at, where you will also find information about
Ubique, Virtual Places and the beta test program.

If you have questions not answered by our on-line information, feel
free to contact me directly.
