Its only after, two weeks of "dreaming" and working in a scripting language i honestly have little clue about, (someone who thought Java was made by Java and Sun was the big yellow ball in the sky -for those not in Europe anyway- up until three weeks back), that now i begin to wonder "what was i thinking?" (promptly followed by "what the hell, onwards!")

(Intellectual property/Patent -is- pending on this so if i see a miraculous clone of this i will -so- be getting rich).

Apparently this concept is "Interesting"/"great" (thus sayth a tech at the Open University, Nicole and Mike from Sun (Project Wonderland) and another Mike who's part of the wonderland project (though is a professor at Essex university).

-----------------------------Concept-------------------------------------

Take:
One Opensource (enterprise level) Instant messenger.
tie one virtual chat applet to the IM. (3D chatroom anyone?)
tie one Java web-browser to the IM. (that only does HTML right now )
-Alot- of forums. (accessible through the IM's browser)
an email server for users(accessible via the IM browser/online, somehow).
a blogging server for users (accessible via the IM browser, see above).
RSS feeds -from- users favourite forums (still see above).
tie Media streaming P2P -and- S2P (watch a movie with a freind?) to the visual chat.

Tie it all together to mostly run -from- the IM, Be -extremely- clever in how you organise it all, Add the normal advertising space (gotta pay for it somehow).

then begin pulling together scientific research teams (by field, cancer research anyone?), various charity organisations (stop human trafficking!).
Give them their own secure section on the forums and a secure group chatroom (the IM does secure IRC style chats as well as 1-2-1), encourage them to play nice and share, throw in free advertising once in a while, and let it simmer for a few months.

A great idea, multi-armed project, part of me wonders why "Hello world" wasn't enough XD as a beginning.

thoughts/comments/offers of help will engender love for respondents
