The Verse Programming language

Tim’s vision of the metaverse

  • Social interaction in a shared real-time 3D simulation
  • An open economy with rules but no corporate overlord
  • A creation platform open to all programmers, artists, and designers, not a walled garden
  • Much more than a collection of separately compiled, statically- linked apps: everyone’s code and content must interoperate dynamically, with live updates of running code
  • Pervasive open standards. Not just Unreal, but any other game/simulation engine e.g. Unity.

This looks really really interesting. Simon Peyton James is a major contributor to the Haskell project.
