Is there any documentation/paper about your deprecated text client? I'm
interested in knowing how was the experience. Did it became obsolete for
missing developers? or because it was not feasible to interact with a
virtual world?

I'm in the process right now to having an updated ember/cyphesis

Even though the example looks promising, for my research I'm focusing more
on "controlled natural language", ACL in particular. This is because ACL
is in fact a formal language. Are you, Erik, involved in the
implementation of this feature, or is only Alistar Riddoch the one
involved? I would like to talk in more detail about this.

So, the application is first sent to the mail list, or directly to Google?
I already have a draft of it, but I'm worried about the scope/limited time
of the proposal.

Thanks for you help.
