Abstract

Until recently, the hyperlink paradigm of HTTP had been restricted to document retrieval. With VRML, navigation from one virtual world to another became achievable. With VRML-InterMUDs, the paradigm is further extended at a more fundamental level to allow communications, virtual presence, navigation between virtual worlds and multimedia information retrieval to be blended as a seamless whole.
