MU*space has a number of applications in the writing
class and can also further literary pursuits
If you have never been to a MUSH (Multi-User Shared Hallucination) or any other type of MU* space (MUX, MUCK, MOO), this is what a typical user screen looks like.
The shot above is taken from The Elizabethan Section of the Foreign Realms in AcademICK, the MUSH of the CWRL.
The database provides the framework; the shared interaction, artifacts, projects, assignments, and dialogue of the users creates the rest.
If you're interested, take a look at a transcript of a MUSH discussion about the Foreign Realms.
