Individual effort almost always takes place in the context of a group of people with similar or related goals. This reality led us to an examination of the young field of CSCW, which looks to support cooperative activities by building specialized collaborative systems. These systems suffer from significant weaknesses, not the least of which is the problem that collaborative systems must make up for weaknesses in the underlying computational environment. This, in turn, led to an examination of the second, "virtual" reality of cooperation, which showed that virtual reality ideas and technology can be used to help overcome some of the problems facing CSCW system developers.
