From FAS Virtual Worlds Almanac
The Federation of American Scientists have begun to to compile a comprehensive online review of virtual worlds, the engines that are used to create virtual worlds, and related information (including news, reviews, and links to other Websites of interest). It is our hope that visitors to our site will not only learn more about virtual worlds, but that they will also contribute to our research and even correct it when necessary. Our primary area of focus in creating this compendium is to promote the use of virtual worlds as ideal tools to enhance learning and professional training. However, we hope that this project will encompass all known virtual worlds across a wide range of venues and purposes, and that anyone with an interest in this area will eventually come to this Wiki to seek answers to their questions -- as well as helping us to fill in some of the blanks in our overall knowledge base.
