ThePalace was (and still is) an amazing piece of social software: a Palace site is a programmable, graphical chat room - complete with avatars, cartoon balloons, games and animations - which can be used to simlate entire virtual worlds. AIP began designing Palace sites way back in the beta days of 1996. Over the next several years we created various Palace-related gizmos & doodads, many of which eventually found their way to this page.

"An interest in any aspect of reality requiring concentrated attention in solitude is considered a particularly dangerous symptom. This leads to the interesting result that if anyone does take any interest in reality he is almost certain to be told that he is running away from it."
