A long-time advocate of MUDs and other virtual  world technologies, Tod is the author of The Palace user manuals and programming tutorial, and co-wrote the extensive guide to interactive environment programming in SAMS Publishing’s Tricks of the Internet Gurus. His articles and essays have appeared in the pages of bOING-bOING, FringeWare Review, PIX-Elation, and The IICS Reporter. Most recently, Tod has been working with (nu)VOX, Top Cow and the market iCD on the groundbreaking Neurostatica project: the first episodic narrative designed for The Palace software.
