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.

"Most philosophical problems are really debates about language that arise because of three mistaken assumptions: (a) that language is consistent, (b) that because a word exists there must exist a ‘thing' that it represents and (c) that the things which are represented should in themselves be integral."
