Playsh - the playful shell

Ben and Matt present Playsh
Originally uploaded by ptufts.
Matt Webb and Ben Cerveny showed off a super cool (and super geeky!) multi-user interactive environment that looks like an extension of a MOO but allows the user to code network objects (RSS, http) and grep them from within the game. It includes a python interpreter -- a multi-user python interpreter -- with which game players can collaboratively extend the game. Really neat!

Here's a screenshot. Click on the image for a larger version.
