Carnegie Mellon University, Dec 26, 2017
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Doug Peterson pointed me to the innovative programming language called 'Alice'. The software has a long history, intertwined with Randy Pausch's work in VR, and moved to Carnegoie Mellon a couple of years ago. What is it? Peterson explains: "Alice offers it all.  2 and 3 D story telling, building, programming in an easy format, an easy to navigate environment, and more including resources for teaching at the Alice website and all over the internet from fans." What it doesn't have, unfortunately, is a web interface. Maybe next year. Note: the website markets Alice as "a free gidft from Carnegie Mellon University," but it would be wise to look at the list of sponsors and especially the series of NSF grants showing who actually paid for this "free gift".
