A short and oversimplified answer: AG 1.x used a MOO for backchannel 
text chat, and a bunch of us still hang out there even when we're not on 
the AG, frequently (but not always) to chat about the AG.

There's a doc on the AGDP specifically for people looking to hang out 
with us on this MOO.


We're generally a friendly bunch there. Laughter and silliness are 
certainly not unheard of.
