the little known world of virtual air traffic control

Vatsim is apparently a massive multiplayer online game where everyone gets to train to pilot planes and control air traffic. People log a lot of hours in this thing, and the regulations and manuals you must read through in order to actually qualify to do the cool stuff is more reading than I think I did in all of highschool. http://www.vatsim.net/

Here's a video made entirely in vatsim.

This is such a great example of the niches of customer-driven & customer-centered development that the internet makes possible.. I'm waiting for the first large-scale virtual terrorist strike in-game.
