Zeitgeist watch: On Aug. 20, Monika G. Liston, 25, and Hugh H. Jo, 33, will tie the knot in what is said to be the world's first virtual-reality wedding. How will it work? The betrothed and a minister will climb into pods at a CyberMind Virtual Reality Center in San Francisco, don computerized headgear, and immediately become immersed in a recreation of the lost city of Atlantis--chariots, carousels, a palace, doves--you get the idea.
