Adobe opens their Atmosphere Community Server source code. Could it be the next widespread virtual environment on the web? A quick look at some of the sample worlds reminds me of when I used Alpha World back in 1996. I witnessed the first true VR wedding and was subject to the one of the first acts of virtual vandalism. But none-the-less, it was cool, you could move around in 3D along side of everyone else online, you could build virtual homes and chat with your friends in avatar form.
