Games on the Net before the Web, Part 2: MUD. I was first introduced to the concept of a MUD through an article by Pavel Curtis describing LambdaMOO in Steve Steinberg's Intertek magazine. Even after I got into full-on connectivity, I never got into MUDs or MOOs because I never really liked the whole "chat" interface, even though the concept of a chat interface within a programmable environment always sounded really need in concept.

But I've still got a soft spot for the idea and what it could be.

And in reminding myself about history: Tech vs Tek?.
