[seul-edu] Educational application under development

I've seen this before on Freshmeat, but never thought to mention it:


This is the server component to Holsham Traders.  From the webpage:
"Holsham Traders is a realtime multiplayer trading game. You are a
trader in a town named Holsham, which is situated on a distant planet,
and you send your transporter from one town to another and try to make
as much money as possible by buying and selling goods."

This isn't ready to go, but it seems to me that it could be useful in a
highschool economics class as a way to demonstrate some of the theories
that are usually very dryly presented by the texts.
