Our demo effort didn't reach to the network part, but it is well worth taking a look at on LAN network. If someone feels compelled to fix this minor shortcoming, please go ahead. Our dream is to see the list of developers expand spontaneously, like virus...

The people and organizations behind ProjectClub were:

Allison Bruce, Ziva Borlja, Peter Coppin, Herb Gilliland, Stan Jones, Minna L
