I normally wouldn't cross-post or forward an announcement like this,
but getting real time 3D in XML has been quite a while coming and
some folks have sweated bullets for it.  I think for any of you out there
in the Bay area, this will be worth attending.  It seems like it
wasn't that long ago (it wasn't) that graphics in markup
was just a paper by Chamberlain and Goldfarb.   Now with
X3D and SVG, it is really happening.   If there are still animation
or visualization junkies in this crew, this will be very cool,
and it will beat the heck out of sitting home watching CNN
or stripping light poles of their yellow ribbons.
BTW:  Xj3D is the open source Java browser for X3D.
I have no affiliation with Media Machines.  I just like cool tech
especially if it pushes the former boundaries of markup.

FYI, a bay area event that you may be interested in attending. Please come if you can-- the more the merrier. If you want to show off X3D content or products we'd be delighted to have you. Just contact myself or Larry.
Quick apology to Yumetech for Larrys' overenthusiastic bit about the "first true X3D browser." We all know that distinction belongs to Xj3D! :-)

A First Look at Flux: The New X3D Browser.

Advanced Visualizations and Realtime3D are fast becoming the next phase of
digital media for the web, corporate intranets, hand helds, phones and beyond.
This month's meeting is a special "First Look" at what's to come.
VRML creator Tony Parisi takes you on a tour of X3D, the new standard in
real-time 3D. X3D picks up where VRML left off, with new graphics
features, better scripting and support for the Extensible Markup Language
(XML). Tony will demonstrate X3D using Flux, the new real time browser
from his company Media Machines. Tony and SFWEB3D founder Larry Rosenthal
will lead an open discussion about the state of the web3D business, how X3D
fits into the picture, and how X3D is positioned to succeed in bringing realtime 3D
visualization and graphics to the web, handhelds and beyond.
Flux will be available for the first open beta download that night and will give early
adopters and developers their first true X3D browser to play with. See it presented by
Tony for the first time to SF 3D developers.

Presenter Bio:

Tony Parisi is a technology pioneer and accomplished entrepreneur at the
forefront of new media. Tony is co-author of the Virtual Reality Modeling
Language (VRML), the ISO standard for 3D graphics on the World Wide Web, and
is widely recognized as an expert in standards, technologies and emerging
markets for interactive rich media. Tony is currently the editor of
Extensible 3D Graphics (X3D), the successor to VRML as the ISO standard for
3D graphics.

In 1995 Tony founded Intervista Software, an early innovator in real-time,
networked 3D graphics technology. At Intervista, Tony led the development of
WorldView, a high-performance VRML player distributed to millions of
Internet Explorer users in partnership with Microsoft. In 1998 Intervista
was purchased by PLATINUM technology, inc. and Tony joined the company to
lead business affairs for its 3D visualization group. In 1999 Tony founded
Media Machines, originally as a consultancy providing business planning and
business development services to technology and media companies in the bay
area and worldwide. Media Machines is now completing development of Flux T,
an X3D-based real-time 3D technology that sets new performance and quality
standards in interactive graphics for web, broadcast and enterprise
