Past Palace Worlds and Links (now mostly dead or archived links)

Minds Palace

The Minds Palace was a Palace world created to explore new forms of social interaction. Developed by Zenda Studio as a companion to Howard Rheingold's new Electric Minds web site, this site featured the day-glo visuals of comic artist Jim Woodring, the creative direction of Mark "Spoonman" Petrakis and all sorts of new inter-activities, such as Zenda's addictive Charebus game. For example, you could make your own character from a large collection of outrageous body parts and, if you're lucky, you got your 15 seconds of fame in our monument t cool avatars. See some past events in Minds Palace including:.

Lastly, Doug Mehus gives us the following great Palace resources:

The first is The Palace Legacy Project (http://www.palacechat.us/), which houses the largest collection of official Palace downloads, manuals, and other plugins or tools. It also contains links to other resources on the Internet relating to Palace software. I'm sure you'll find it more than suitable for adding. I would, of course, provide a reciprocal link back to The Digital Space Commons.

The second site is Palace Events Magazine, which has basically replaced PalaceNewz in terms of readership. It's an online webzine for Palace users, targeting the over 21+ crowd, and uses php-Nuke. Its URL is http://www.palacemag.com/.

The last one is the Practice Palace website (http://practice.chatserve.com/). It is run by Glide, a former Communities.com employee, and has great tutorials and other useful information.
