About ActiveWorlds

Active Worlds is an online virtual world, developed by ActiveWorlds Inc., a company based in Newburyport, Massachusetts, and launched on June 28, 1995. Users assign themselves a name, log into the Active Worlds universe, and explore 3D virtual worlds and environments that others have built. ActiveWorlds allows users to own worlds and universes, and develop custom 3D content. The browser has web browsing capabilities, voice chat, and basic instant messaging.

Scope of Webb Dsgn

After being a member of the ActiveWorlds community since 2001, I developed a community-operated website called AWCom (AWCommunity) that cataloged places and worlds within ActiveWorlds, along with panoramas and, in some cases, interactive “street view” sequences. This community website was widely considered successful, and led to me being hired to develop with the same approach.

In August 2014, with one day’s notice, I launched the new, which featured a complete transition of content from the AWCom project. Over the next several months, I improved on the website’s design and layout, added new content, and revised existing content under the direction of Richard Noll.

In May 2015, I resigned from the position. continues to use my design, although it has not been maintained since then.
