A project that I have been watching with some interest for the past
four or so years is The Galileo Project:


They have been designing for a very long time and I think they are
currently in a proof of concept development mode.

I have a list of other such projects - Even David Braben (Elite and
Frontier Elite 2 fame) is rumored to be planning an online Elite
universe... I think the concept of an online space trading universe
would definitely be a welcome change of pace to your normal everyday
run of the mill 14th century game *chuckle*

I even have napkins with scribbled notes concerning the Elite
universe played with 100's of people as well as a design doc dating
back to 1989. I would sell it to the highest bidder - but, I
probably would use the proceeds to ship it out j/k.
