Elena Chernyshova - Days of Night - Nights of Day (2012-13)
Artist’s statement: 
“Days of Night - Nights of Day is about the daily life of the inhabitants of Norilsk, a mining city northernmost of the polar circle with a population of more than 170 000. 
The city, its mines and metallurgical factories were constructed by prisoners of the Gulag. With 60% of the present population involved in the industrial process, this documentary aims to investigate human adaptation to extreme climate, ecological disaster and isolation.
Norilsk is the 7th most polluted city in the world. The average temperature is -10C, reaching lows of -55C in winter, when for two months the city is plunged into polar night. The living conditions of the people of Norilsk are unique, making their plight incomparable.”

Lucidscape
Company developing an open-source metaverse operating system - imagine Grand Theft Auto V as the Windows of the future:

At Lucidscape we are building a new kind of massively-distributed 3D simulation engine to power the vast network of interconnected virtual worlds known as the Metaverse.
Our work is necessary because incremental changes built atop existing 3D engine architectures will not be sufficient to create the kind of massively multi-user experiences we expect from tomorrow’s web-of-worlds.
Handling massive virtual worlds requires a fundamentally different approach to engine design, one that prioritizes the requirements of scale, thoroughly embraces distributed computing and many-core architectures, and that is also unencumbered by the legacy decisions which hold current engines back.
We are developing the open source software foundations for a future where millions of us will interact within enormous virtual worlds through standardized clients which allow users and programs to flow from one server to the next as easily as we navigate the web today. Our distributed simulation stack is intended to serve as the VR equivalent of the web server and browser, while also offering OS-like security and scheduling capabilities necessary to manage resource usage by users and nomadic programs.

Whilst at the moment it is in prototype / simulation state, this appears to be the only open-source attempt to date.
