Java objects that draw just like Self's "morphs" are downloaded through the socket into the client's browser. Users mouse and keyboard input as well as their navigational moves are also sent into the world so they can be reflected for all to see.
"Cool, eh?" And no URL!? I could faint. :v) Is this thing still up for the viewing? I've just rapidly consumed about five Self papers, and I'm dying (well...) to try it, but I have no access to any modern Suns. (yes, only one isn't a 680x0. :vP ) The "try it over X" link to me.sun.com doesn't work (and if it did, it would probably be a drag :v), so your report of a Java-accessible Self has me all curious.
