|What will become
of Simon Says?
||Actually nobody knows. There's no
plan and there's no purpose, other than the purpose we all give to our
Real Life. Since CyberSpace is the mirror of RL, Simon will surely die
one day. In the meantime he's prepared to give your Web-strolls a little
colour, some flavour and certainly some sense.
Potential Milestones and Deadlines
Anyway, don't hold it against Simon if doesn't reach
one or more of these goals. It's probably because along the way he was
held up by one or more of you. But he doesn't care.
By january 1st, 1999 : At least 100 different Netizens
on his online contact lists. Last time there was a count (september, 20
1998) he had a total of 144 contacts, already...... And that was only because
some of the contact lists are limited.....
By midst 1999 : have virtual property in at least
three environments. As I type this now (december, 12 1998) he actually
has changed his ambitions a bit. Since he's the editor of the
Active Worlds Watch on Sunday, property doesn't mean that much to him.
There might be some surprises, though..... but you'll read all about that
in AWWoS. So, that mile-stone is erased
from his agenda.
By end 1999 : At least have online contact with 300
By the end of the century (and people, 2000 is the
last year of this one) one of Simons achievements in a hard copy publication
(not just a reference).

cannot control, aren't we lucky?"
