the space bar

The space bar is Cyborganic's chat server, home to a thriving community. Cyborganic team members are responsible for all aspects of the space bar and its Web site, including design, production, hosting, moderation, administration, and editorial elements.

In addition to the telnet-based chat application itself, several interactive elements have been devised to help users stay in touch. A cadet detector allows users to place an icon on their own homepages that will tell visitors to those pages whether the user is logged into the space bar, and will allow them to visit with one click of a mouse. The space bar message board allows users to leave messages for other users. The porthole allows users to see who is on the chat server without logging in.
