in reply to Perlmonks MOO
I've always wanted to see some of the features of MOOs brought onto the web or similar technologies.
Apart from being great introductions to OO programming (you can literally see it happening in front of you), they are the only (simultaneous) joint code editing program I've seen . The idea of having multiple people editing the same code is something I've always wanted to play with a bit more.
Personally I don't feel attracted to the idea of browsing PM nodes by walking through rooms, but I do like the idea of being able to see what the monks around the monastary are doing - it would rock to have a list of monks currently looking at a node so we could kibbitz about nodes.
I once laid down the start of some code for a web-based moo in perl, but pretty much gave it up when I realised that there was no good way to allow people to run limited Perl5 code that they wrote inside the moo. The way Safe.pm works, it either limits programmers to trivial, useless code, or it allows people to gain full access easily (i.e. if you allow module loading, anyone can take control. if you don't, there's not much fun to be had)
