Hmm... this must have been a while ago, but sounds like we're ready for
Yet Another Consortium. In fact, if we had a trade show for the industry
association, we could call it Consortium Consortium Coordination World '96:


>> At SIGGRAPH 1996, the VRML Architecture Group (VAG) officially
>> announced the VRML 2.0 specification, and the formation of the VRML
>> Consortium, a non-profit organization dedicated to furthering the
>> development of VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language). In early
>> 1996, Moving Worlds from Silicon Graphics was chosen as the working
>> document for VRML 2.0. The International Organization for
>> Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical
>> Commission (IEC) have entered into a cooperative development
>> agreement with the VRML community and have accepted VRML 2.0 as a
>> Committee Draft ISO and IEC standard for 3D world
>> descriptions. More info is at
