The first 3D-CD Project was compiled between October, 1997 and May, 1998. It started as an idea that I presented to the Photo-3D list about keeping an "off-line" copy of much of the stereo/3D content available on the web at the time for 2 main reasons:
1) Most people only had 28.8 modems at the time, and the idea of "surfing the web" for viewing 600+ MB of content was nearly unimaginable.
2) I had noticed that several very nice stereo/3d web sites had gone off line, and their content was essentially "lost" to the rest of us.
I started to ask everyone I could think of for permission to include their web site content on a CD for like minded folks who would like to have quicker, permament access to it. Most people/organizations readily said yes, and so I proceeded to "harvest" copies of their content, convert it as needed to make it fit into a 3D-CD structure, and the result was the first 3D-CD Project.
It is important to note that there is also a lot of content on the 3D-CD you couldn't just go out and find on the web. People liked the idea so much that they submitted other content that was not on the web, which greatly added to the "value" of this historical 3D-CD. About 90% of what is on the 3D-CD is connected to each other in a sort of super web site centered on a main menu. The other 10% or so is shareware, browsers, and browser plug-ins that are provided for convenience. Most of the shareware is not Mac compatible, but the whole 3D-CD is, and has been tested on several different Mac machines as well as a Unix machine.
Several people/organizations who granted permission for the inclusion of their content only did so if for a specific period of time, so I was only able to offer this 3D-CD for a while, and then could make no more. The only way you will be able get copies of this 3D-CD now is on the secondary market - I WILL NOT be making any more.
Here is a list of what makes up about 20,000 files which take up about 608 MB of space on the 3D-CD:
