We introduce a component architecture in support of a simplified approached to distributed authorship of functional content and user interface elements within Croquet-based 3D spaces. Known as 'Brie,' the approach is designed to take advantage of social opportunities afforded by Croquet's collaborative architecture by greatly simplifying content creation through an intuitive and highly flexible user interface approach. By reducing the technical demands of authoring functional content in Croquet-based multiuser environments, we hope to facilitate expansion of the potential community of content developers to include graphic designers and technically naive users. The Brie component-based approach addresses this in two ways: 1) it establishes a fundamentally new way for users to construct new objects and behaviors de novo, and 2) it establishes a way for users to easily deconstruct and recombine objects and behaviors received from other users, discovered through a search mechanism, or encountered as objects within existing Croquet spaces
